How to Schedule a Performance


Submit a request through our Artist & Program Guide or contact our staff

We will confirm various aspects of the program with you including (but not limited to) dates, times, performance space, number of students, and grade levels. If you aren't sure about which performance would be best, we can provide ideas that match your goals.

Request to artist

We will reach out to the artist with these details to determine a performance date.


We will confirm an available date with you as well as the cost of the program.

ALNW will send a contract and invoice

We will either mail or email the documents to the coordinator. The contract will need to be signed and returned at least two weeks before the performance. 

If you are in a school district where principals cannot sign contracts, please submit the contract to the district to process and send back to us.

Feedback surveys

After the program is completed, ALNW will send a survey to each staff member who was present. We greatly appreciate your response!
