Team Member Expectations
You are now an official children's entertainer! Wonderful! Now what all is expected?
Parties range from 30 minutes to 2 hours with the most popular option being one hour long. Pay is $80/hr per performance time only. If a gig is 20 miles away from Home Base gas will then be compensated.
Although the gig itself is one hour one job can take 2-4 hours of your day depending on where the gig is.
Team members are expected to meet at Home Base for every gig. Once you arrive you will change into costume and do a rehearsal. At first rehearsals might be an hour to an hour and a half. The more experience you have the less rehearsal time will need needed. Rehearsals then will be cut to 20-30 minutes. You are also expected to do your own practice at home to prepare.
You are then expected to drive to the gig and back to Home Base after your gigs are complete for the day to drop off everything.
