Actors change behind the scenery during the show.
All UK based actors are DBS checked - cetificates are avilalbe on request or to be seen when the actors arrive
Actors from Europe:
A UK DBS check will show NO results so we get our actors Police checked in their country.
Copies of these are available and they will bring them with them to your school.
They will always have ID with them too.
If your hall or drama studio has stage lighting perhaps they can be turned on for the performance – tell your theatre technician we’ll need a “General Wash”.
Q&A after the show
Actors are always willing to do a short Q&A with the audience after the play.
Onatti will email you an invoice after the performance date. No deposit is needed for the performance date.
We don't ask schools for a deposit BUT if you cancel less than 5 weeks before the performance date we will invoice you for £200 plus VAT.
Why? Our tours become very booked and we have probably disappointed schools who wanted YOUR date - it would be hard to fill a gap at short notice.
We hope you understand.
