Parents-Frequently Asked Questions

I am a school administrator. How do I get more information on a GingerSnap Show for my specific school?


Please email Sadie Rose at GingerSnapPA2018@gmail.com to begin planning the next big show at your school. Each contract is individualized to meet the needs of the school, the space, the students, and the staff.




Which schools are allowed to hire GingerSnap Performing Arts to facilitate a show at their school?


Any school with interested young performers ages 7-17! Each show, rehearsal process, contract, and budget is individualized to meet the needs of the specific school.




What if our school doesn’t have a fully equipped auditorium? Can we still hire GingerSnap to help us put on a show?


Absolutely! GingerSnap Performing Arts has a lot of experience with non-traditional theater spaces and will tailor individual contracts and budgets to meet the needs of most spaces.




What’s the difference between a GingerSnap School Contract and a GingerSnap Show?


The difference between GingerSnap School Contract and GingerSnap Show is this: the School Contracts happen within a school and are for the students of that specific school. The GingerSnap Shows stand on their own and are made up of interested and random individuals that have enrolled in the experience.




What is all included in the GingerSnap School Contract experience?


Once a show has been selected, budget signed off on, contract details spelled out, and a rehearsal and show schedule decided on, the fun begins! The children will start with a few days (depending on number of participants) of auditions, a 4-6 week rehearsal process with a week of technical rehearsals at the end, and one to two weekends of performances based on school interest. Each school can tailor this process to meet their wants and needs. There is a ton of flexibility and freedom here when it comes to budget and the show itself. Don't be afraid to email us with specific questions. Taking resources into account, no show is too big or too small!




Which students are allowed to participate in a GingerSnap School Contract?


The simple answer is, as long as they are 7-17 and have basic reading and writing skills, any child is eligible to take part if they are interested. The school can also make it a requirement if needed, but we normally function as a voluntary after school experience for any interested children. For school shows, we also hold our participants to high expectations when it comes to their work and behavior outside of the rehearsal process. All participants must keep their behavior and academic performance to a level deemed appropriate by school administration. We love and value the theatrical experience and view it as something that should be earned. If other portions of a participant’s schooling are not up to par, participation in GingerSnap Performing Arts programming will not be admissible. Balance is important. This can be discussed on an individual contract basis if school administration would like to be specific about guidelines when it comes to the young performers.




How many students are allowed to participate in each show?


This answer will be handled on an individual school basis depending on how big the performance area is and which show is selected. We’ve had as many as 50 kids in one cast and as little as 15 in another.
