The Bemis Company Education Series is designed specifically for grade levels PreK through 12 attending from private and public schools, state registered home schools and state licensed family and group childcare centers.
Admission is $5 or $7, depending on the performance. Admission fees are used to help pay the artists’ fees and operation costs of the education programs. Prices are kept as low as possible with help from the Center’s generous sponsors. One complimentary seat is included with every 15 seats reserved. All seats must be reserved through the school group.
Parents are not able to purchase seats on their own unless they are a state registered home school.
No printed tickets are issued for education performances. Seating assignments are handed out on the day of the performance and location is determined by reservation date, special seating needs, grade level and group size.
Please use the suggested grade levels listed for each performance as a guide to determine what is appropriate for your students.
As a courtesy to the performers and the audience, we strongly recommend that children be at least three years old.
Booster seats are not available for education performances.
Babies in arms will not be permitted in the theater and will need to remain in the lobby with a chaperone.
Everyone, regardless of age, must reserve a seat.
Due to the nature of theatrical bookings, prices, shows, artists, dates and times are subject to change.
Reservations are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations of 15 seats or less will require a credit card number on file to charge on the balance due date or payment in full with a personal check within 10 business days.
Final payment and seat count adjustments are due a minimum of four weeks prior to the performance. If payment is not received, seats may be released. To accommodate last minute class size changes, you may request additional seats after the four week deadline, but seats will be subject to availability and payment must be received prior to the performance. Once full payment is received, refunds will not be given.
Payments must be made with one form of payment (i.e. check made payable to the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center or credit card) and received prior to the scheduled performance date. No cash please. A $30 fee will be charged on all returned checks. Payments should be mailed to Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, attention: Group Sales, 400 West College Avenue, Appleton, WI 54911.
Refunds or exchanges will only be honored if an event is canceled by the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center or if your school (or district where you reside) is closed or delayed.
Because we are unable to resell reserved seats, no refunds are issued for unused seats on the day of the performance, including student illnesses.
Study guides and other resources to help you get the most from your experience at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center are available online. Information can be mailed upon request. Educators interested in a backstage tour for their class or other opportunities should contact the education sales department at (920) 730-3726.
The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center strives to make the arts available to everyone. We offer many services for patrons with special needs, including wheelchair accessible seating, assisted listening devices and American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation.
To best serve the needs of you and your students, indicate if you have individuals who require special services or seating needs when making your reservation.
Upon request, appropriate performances can be ASL interpreted. This service must be requested a minimum of three weeks prior to the performance.
Additional complimentary chaperone seats may also be available for students who need individual supervision.
