How does it work?
The Thousand Faces Festival will bring the party to you! Our TYA shows are ready to hit the road, complete with professional actors, costumes, tech, and props. Most of our shows can be performed in a variety of spaces, such as music rooms, gyms, and large classrooms. You pick the date and your performance time. We make an effort to ensure that our performances fit into a standard school timetable block.

1. A 'stage' space that’s at least 20’ by 20’ (Please contact us to discuss)
3. A power outlet for a speaker to be plugged into
5. A space where actors can change into their costumes
6. Access to the performance space 60-90 minutes before the show is scheduled to start

We've performed for classrooms of 20 students and gymnasiums of up to 200 students. If you have multiple groups interested in the show, there is a possibility we can do multiple performances at your school. Prior to our visit we will discuss with you the best set-up of your space using the resources you have to maximize the theatre experience for your students.
Do you only tour to schools?
