Frequently Asked Questions about Field Trips

 How do I make a reservation for a field trip show?

What ages are appropriate for your field trips?

  • We believe the shows we are offering are appropriate for children 4 and up.

When do I make the final payment for my field trip?

  • You may bring the final payment the day of the show.  Please bring payment in the form of a check made out to HPCT.  You can also pay by cash but no credit cards will be accepted.

Do I have to pay for teachers?

  • We allow 1 free teacher/chaperone for every 15 students.  Any additional chaperones will pay the same ticket price as the students.

What if my class size changes after I reserve my group?

  • We understand that numbers could change slightly from the original reservation.  You are able to update your group number up to 1 week before the show - this will be on a first come first serve basis.

What if there is inclement weather?

What if the show is already sold out?

  • We will maintain a waiting list and if you are notified that the show is sold out you will be given the option to be added to that list.

What if I have to cancel a reservation?

  • If you cancel more than 45 days before the show date you will lose your $25 deposit.

  • If you cancel 44-11 days before the show you will owe 50% of the total reserved ticket price.

  • If you cancel 10 days or less before the show you will owe 100% of the total reserved ticket price

    Why will I have to pay for a show that we are not attending?

  • We try to make reserving a show easy for our school groups but when you make a reservation we are essentially selling those seats without payment and when a group cancels at the last minute it is impossible to sell those seats.  Therefore we will need to collect that ticket money for cancelling so close to the show.

How will I know what to do the day of the show?

  • You will receive an email with instructions on when to arrive, where to enter and park buses, a contact phone number in case you run late and any other pertinent information to that field trip.  This email will go out approximately 2 weeks before your field trip.

Will there be tickets available the day of the show for parents that want to attend?  

  • Any available tickets will be available at the door but this will be on a first come first serve basis and they will be expected to pay for the ticket at the door via cash or check.

What about Homeschool Groups?

We welcome homeschool groups but please note that you must also follow the same reservation process.  A group must be at least 15 people.  You must purchase a ticket for everyone in your party including small children.  We do not recommend children under the age of 2 attend our field trip shows however if you decide to bring a small children they will require a ticket even if they will be sitting in your lap.

  • We cannot reserve seats as we seat groups as they arrive so we recommend that your group arrive early and enter together to ensure that you can sit together.  

  • You may add people to your group 2 weeks before the show based on availability.

  • Any unreserved seats will be sold the day of the show and can be purchased at the door payable by cash or check.
