Schools Program

The Adelaide Fringe Schools Program provides assistance, benefits and resources to teachers booking Fringe experiences for their students.

Fringe gives all artists the opportunity to opt-in to the Schools Program if they have an event that is appropriate for young people aged 2-18 years. Artists are asked to nominate a discounted ticket price for schools and to provide free tickets for teachers as per the Department for Education teacher/student ratio guidelines (usually one or two per school group). The Schools Booking Guide containing this information is distributed to every South Australian school in January.

2020 saw the introduction of a Schools Equity discount. Category 1 to 4 schools are eligible for a discount of $5 per ticket on the Schools ticket price (or other relevant price) for any show in the Fringe.

Teachers can join the Schools Facebook Group and sign up to the Schools Program email list below to keep up to date and be informed of additional sessions and offers.

Contact our Schools Program Coordinator by emailing or phoning 08 8100 2004.
