Participation Fees


Participation Fees for Young Footliters productions make the show possible!

Have you ever wondered what it costs to put on a play? As theatre companies go, we’re pretty frugal. Even so, most of our shows cost $10,000-$15,000 to produce. Where does all that money go? It pays for things we see on stage like costumes, sets, props, and paint. It also pays for things you might not think about: advertising, copies of scripts, rental of the performance and rehearsal facilities. And most importantly, it pays for the professionals who make our shows possible: directors, designers, choreographers, musicians, and the playwrights and licensors of the play.

Like any camp or after-school activity, Young Footliters relies on participation fees to help cover these costs. These participation fees usually cover about 25-30% of the total cost of a production; the remainder of the production cost is raised through ticket sales, donations, and business sponsorships. Your participation fee is a crucial part of making all this theatre possible! Participation fees are $45 if cast in a play and $75 for a musical.

We understand that participation fees may make it difficult for your child to be involved in a show. Please let us help. Scholarships are available through the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts for families with financial need. Please don’t hesitate to e-mail or call Elizabeth Tracey at the info below if you would like a scholarship form.
