What is the process and availability to book this event?
Charlie travels almost anywhere, but needs time to get the event wedged onto his work calendar.
What can I expect Charlie to do, the day of the program?
Charlie arrives an hour ahead of time to check in and set up. His contract specifies the logistics of the entire event.
Does Charlie have his own equipment?
Charlie has his own sound system, microphone, video projector and screen. But he is happy to use your equipment if it is compatible. He can truly set up anywhere, inside or out, weather permitting.
How can I help get the word out to parents?
Charlie can send press releases, flyers, artwork for your website calendar or sample merchandise. But the best PR is word-of-mouth. An assembly during the day will get the kids buzzing and inquisitive parents usually love to see what the rumpus is all about.
