Pre-Packaged Shows: A Delight for Audiences and Orchestras

At this time of the year, orchestras are bracing for a packed holiday season. The Hallelujah Chorus may usher in guaranteed revenues and full houses, but the real rejoicing begins as the frenzy of the season subsides and the pace (and heartbeats) return to normal speed. In the New Year, pre-packaged shows are a godsend for stretched-to-the-limit staff. Just plug it in and watch it go… and in the case of Platypus Theatre, watch it grow!

The Recipe for a Blockbuster

Creating productions in-house is a herculean effort, and there’s no guarantee the show will fill the house or be a hit with the audience. Platypus Theatre shows have been tested through hundreds of performances across North America, Australia and Asia, and evolve to keep pace with modern audiences. Platypus Theatre is widely recognized by parents and teachers for making classical music fun for kids, and our educational resources are tailor-made to fit classroom curriculum. The quality and value of a Platypus Theatre show equals happy ticket buyers, and lots of them!

Time = Money

Staff time is expensive. When producing an in-house show, your admin needs to select the music and make arrangements, create the story, source artists, costumes, props, lighting, staging and then direct the show. And of course this is on top of everything else that needs to be done to make the show run smoothly. With a pre-packaged show, your staff can focus on other necessary tasks, leaving the countless hours of coordination to us.

25 Years of Problem Solving

Those challenges you face when programming a show? We take them off your plate. Need new arrangements because your budget restricts the percussion or brass section? We’re on it. Space or union restrictions? We can work within them. We’ve been doing this for a long time, which means we’re experts at making it look easy, while working our tails off to meet your needs.

Making it Local

Nothing gets kids more excited than seeing other kids on stage doing amazing things, especially when they know those kids up there! Many Platypus Theatre shows bring local kids up on stage to play an integral role in the story. In our holiday show A Flicker of Light on a Winter’s Night, local youth actors and singers rehearse well ahead of time to be main characters in the show. We want our audiences to be hometown proud and make it easy for our presenters to spotlight local talent.

Every Platypus Theatre show is organized and professional, making it enjoyable not only for audiences, but also for artistic staff, operations, library, musicians, and the conductor. Contact us today to see how we can work together to help you save time and money, and present a blockbuster young people’s concert your audience will love.
