A person like you figures out what program they want. Depending on how
the set up at the school is, we can break the students into groups as
large as 150 kids if they are sitting on the same level as the
presenter. Any more than this and the kids in the back feel that they
can't see and it is a constant battle to keep them seated. No one gets
as much out of the program in these situations. If a differentiated
performance area can be provided (such as a stage, risers, or even
tiered seating like an LGI, or bleachers) then Julian can
handle as many as 500 students at a time.
Obviously smaller groups are better than larger groups, but we will
work with what we have.
Often, when you call there will be a group of schools in your basic
area with a single day open, where you can tag along.
We recommend that you send out an e-mail to the others in your
district, region, or on your list serve and ask if anyone wants to
group with you. We can also help facilitate tours and group bookings as we have
extensive lists of satisfied past clients who would be more
than willing to tag along with YOUR booking in order to save
The fees for the presentations are $1,100 per full-day and $650 for a
half-day for most of our programs. The Game Show is $1,500 for a full-day and
$900 for a half-day.
Pricing for Schools
||All Other Shows
|Full-day (3 to 5 presentations)
|Half-day (alone) (1 or 2 presentations)
|Half-day (sharing w/ another school)
|After School (1 presentation)
|Evening (1 presentation)
|Additional Presentation (of same show)
As you can tell from the chart above, the full-day can be split
between two schools at no additional charge (except for the Game
Show). Thus you could have a presentation at one school in the
morning and a different school in the afternoon. Each school would
pay one half of the full-day fee ($550 ea.). This will allow each
school either one or two programs. If Julian is at a single school
for the entire day, he can present as many as 5
presentations in a day. Additional showings are available at $175
After School Programs
can be had for $300. These
events are a single performance given after school dismisses but before
6 pm. Your choice of program may be limited by what program(s) were presented
during the day. This option is also limited by where Julian will be during the day. An after school event can only be
booked AFTER a full or half-day has been booked on that date in your
are a great way to promote book
fairs, award programs, reward programs, PTA/PTO membership drives, and a guaranteed way to
increase parent involvement. However, for maximum impact
and effectiveness the program should be scheduled on the same day as a
day time program. For schools more than a 90 minute drive from Houston
the evening program MUST be on the same day as the day time program or
scheduled on a day when we are performing at another local school.
Evening programs are $300 (due to the elaborate staging set up, The Game Show is
$900). Your choice of program may be (but is not
always) limited by what program(s) were presented during the day. The
evening program will ALWAYS be different from what was presented at
YOUR school during the day unless you specifically request otherwise.

Programs All our
programs are exciting, engaging, laugh-out-loud fun, and they
always encourage the kids to READ! Summer library programs
usually book up 12-18 months in advance. If you want a
Wednesday morning, you may need to book two years in advance
(no, I'm NOT kidding, check out our schedule
again, if in doubt). The first
presentation at a given location during the summer is $300, each
additional program at the same location, same show, back-to-back is
just $150. The good news is that public libraries in most of Texas do
not pay mileage during the summer.
We also have programs for YA/Teens including magic workshops,
puppetry workshops, and entrepreneur workshops.
For Your Convenience
- Each school or
library can be invoiced separately
even if sharing a day
- The schools do
not need to be in the same district,
even if they are sharing a day
- We will mail and
e-mail to our list of past clients and prospects to help you find
other schools near you to help coordinate group bookings. If you want
to be added to that list, even if you aren't sure about when or if you
want to book something, let us know and we can keep you in the loop!
What About Mileage
and Travel Expenses?
We've made travel and mileage so simple that you'll almost enjoy paying
it! If that wasn't good enough news, you'll be happy to
learn that 93% of our clients NEVER pay mileage or travel expenses!
That's right. Our mileage and travel rates are grouped together and
determined at a flat rate (much lower than you would pay on a per-mile
basis plus per diem) and then we give you a very simple way to opt out
of paying any mileage and travel expense at all.
For information about how our travel fees work, and to determine your
mileage fee (if any) just click the link to our mileage
