School Entertainment Committee
The majority of schools around the world have what they call and “Entertainment Committee” or “Arts & Entertainment Committee”. They are in charge of putting together different events within the school. In the case of our topic at hand this committee will find out their budget for the year and base on the amount will book entertainment to perform at the school. Everything has to meet their budget and going over that amount will set the school back financially.
The entertainment that the school committee is known to book are comedians, dancers, cultural performers, musicians, artists, speakers, and Dj’s. Before the artist or talent comes to perform all details including the location, time, date, auditorium size, capacity etc. needs to be send to the artist’s management first. The management will review it and based on the info set things up for his artists so things can run as smoothly as possible.
A contract is then signed and half the payment is sent to the management team as a diposit the the talent to show up, and the other half of the money is giving after the performance.
