Frequently Asked Questions about Field Trips
How do I make a reservation for a field trip show?
You must fill out the online form - click the "Register Now!" button. Reservations by phone are not accepted.
After the form is submitted you must send a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit via a check for $50 made out to HPCT to PO Box 1152, High Point NC 27261. Your reservation is not final until the deposit has been received.
Once you have submitted the online form and your check you will receive an email verifying your reservation. If you have not received a confirmation email 2 weeks after you sent the deposit please send an email to email@example.com.
What ages are appropriate for your field trips?
We believe Elf Jr., Christmas Carol, and Lion King Jr. are appropriate for children 4 and up.
My Fair Lady is recommended for Middle School and High School, due to the length of the show. However, younger children are welcome if the teacher feels it is appropriate.
When do I make the final payment for my field trip?
You may bring the final payment the day of the show in the form of a check made out to HPCT or cash. No credit cards will be accepted.
Do I have to pay for teachers?
We allow 1 free teacher for every 15 students.
What about parent chaperones?
- Parent chaperones are welcome. They must be included in your reservation, and are charged the same amount as students.
What if I have to cancel a reservation?
If you cancel more than 6 weeks before the show date - you will lose your $50 deposit.
If you cancel 2-6 weeks before the show date - you will still owe 50% of your reserved ticket price.
If you cancel less than 2 weeks before the show date - you will owe 100% of the total reserved ticket price.
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 2 weeks before the show. Changes must be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be asked to confirm your ticket count 2 weeks before the show.
Less than 2 weeks before the show date - you may add tickets IF they are available, but you may not decrease the ticket number.
What if some students don’t show up on the day of the show?
- You will be charged for the number of tickets reserved, regardless of how many students actually attend the show.
Why will I have to pay for a show that we are not attending?
We try to make reserving a field trip easy by not requiring payment at the time of making the reservation. When you make a reservation, we are essentially selling those seats, even though payment is not made until later, and turning away other groups who may want to purchase those seats. When a group cancels at the last minute, it is impossible to sell those seats to another group. Therefore we will need to collect that ticket money for cancelling so close to the show.
What if there is inclement weather?
If school is closed due to weather you will be refunded your $50 deposit. It is your responsibility to send instructions on who the check should be made out to and where it should be sent. That information can be sent to email@example.com.
If a show is cancelled due to school closings there will not be a make-up show.
What if the show is already sold out?
We will maintain a waiting list - if you are notified that the show is sold out you will be given the option to be added to that list.
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 1 week before your field trip.
Will there be tickets available the day of the show for parents that want to attend?
If the show is not sold out, any remaining tickets will be available at the door, but this will be on a first come first serve basis. These tickets at the door must be paid for via cash or check - no credit cards.
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. We recommend that your group gather together outside the theater and enter together to ensure that you can sit together.
- Any unreserved seats will be sold the day of the show and can be purchased at the door payable by cash or check.
