The Adelaide Fringe Schools Program (formerly YEP!) 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 DECD teacher/student ratio guidelines (usually one or two per school group).
In 2020, over 200 Fringe artists offered schools discounted tickets, in-school performances and additional resources. The Schools Booking Guide containing this information can be viewed below. A printed copy was distributed to every South Australian school in the week of the 20th January 2020.
2020 saw the introduction of a Schools Equity discount. Category 1 to 4 schools were 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.
