Information For Schools

How it works

  1. Sign up – you will need to sign up your school group and select your preferred performance. Please note that the 12:30 performance is typically less crowded and the 9:30 performance fills up quickly
  2. School Visit – our Education Director, David Herriott will reach out to you to provide you with study guide materials as well as set up a school visit. He will visit your classroom to get your students ready to attend live theatre and learn more about the show and what to expect
  3. Chaperones/ Ratio – we ask that you have a 10:1 student to adult ratio
  4. Buses and Parking – David Herriott will send you detailed bus drop off information. It sometimes varies slightly per show based on other events happening in the building. Typically, buses will drop students off and pick them up in front of the Concert Hall.

What to expect when you arrive

When your group arrives, you will be greeted by BTL staff and ushers that will direct your group into the Concert Hall area. Groups are seated first come, first served, starting at the stage and working back. We will use the balcony after the floor area is full. We ask that students stay in line and remain with their groups, and use the restroom with a chaperone. 

Please visit our Theatre Etiquette page about attending live theatre if you’d like to know more about Theatre Etiquette.

After the show is over, we ask that all groups remain in their seats and listen to further instructions from the stage area. Groups will be released in a designated direction/ doorway based on bus pickup location.

At BTL we do our very best to keep groups as organized as possible while keeping all students safe while having a great time at the theatre!
