Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to programs like the ones Unafraid offers, you may have some questions about audience size, technical aspects and other important details. This page will help you speed up the organization of the programs so can be ready to schedule in no time. We try and answer all your questions here on the website! If you have any further questions, just send us a message!

What age/grade levels are the programs best for?

These programs are recommended for students 6-12th grade. Programs are adapted to the grade level it's being presented to. Please check back soon for our programs for younger children. 

What is the cost?

We are working hard at getting as many shows sponsored as possible. Each of our program packages have a published rate of $450 for one program, and reduced rates ($350 and $320) of additional same day programs. If you team up with another campus nearby, we can give you both discounted rates! This ensures competitive pricing and allows us to provide you the BEST programs at an AFFORDABLE cost.

What size of audience is best?

We want to make sure that everyone is seated comfortably so they can enjoy the show. The programs have been performed for around 200 students and as little as 20. We recommend forming smaller groups by splitting up grade levels in auditoriums, or even performing right inside your classroom. We want to give every child a chance to participate in the Q&A at the end of the performance. 

How soon should I book?

Unafraid’s programs are extremely popular and it is recommended that you book as soon as you can. Most places book about three to nine months before. It’s never too soon or too late to check availability! However, the sooner you book the more likely you will get your desired date and time. 

Is the booking process easy?

We want to make it as SIMPLE and EASY as it gets! Just send us an email at admin@unafraidproductions.com  Make sure to include your first choice of date and time, and your grade level.  

How big of a space do you need to set up a program?

10 ft wide and 8 ft deep (minimum) for best results. The programs can and have been set up in smaller settings such as libraries and/or classrooms. Most school programs are held in a gym or cafeteria.

How long does a program take to set up once on campus?

We ask for 30 minutes of set up before the initial program at each campus. The performance space will need to be cleared prior to this time. When scheduling shows back-to-back at one campus, we ask for 10-minutes to reset a program for the next group/grade level. This can be done while group 1 exits and group 2 enters.

How long do the programs run?

Each program includes a Q&A session and  runs about 55 minutes. It can be shortened to fit your schedule and grade level(s).  Don’t want a Q&A? We can still do a 55 minute program by combining two of your chosen topics. 

Do you provide sound equipment?

All of our actors are trained performance artists who can perform without microphones.

Do you offer any discounts?

Yes. There are several ways you can save when booking with us and even a way to score a FREE program.  We have several booking options where we can make it happen for campuses/libraries/organizations that need a little help. 

We want to rebook Unafraid’s programs. What can we expect?

Most organizations book and rebook year after year. New subjects and messages are added each season to make the shows exciting and original. Your students will see something new from the characters they know and trust.

Can I put a date on hold?

The demand for programming is high! We can temporarily place a date on HOLD to insure that in doesn't get scooped up by someone else while you are making your decision. HOLDS are good for 3 days. We will keep in contact with you when the HOLD time is about to expire. We can occasionally extend holds if needed.

Do we have to pay a deposit?

There is typically no deposit required to schedule. Exceptions include (but are not limited to) out of area shows.

How far do you travel?

Our programs are available all over the north Texas area. 

When is payment due?

Payment is due on or before the date of the program(s). We do ask that you please make arrangements in advance if more time is needed. We know POs can take some time!

What is asked in the Q&A?

Our question and answer section is written to engage adolescents critical thinking skills. They are led with factual research and statistics as they talk to each other about the ways they can cope with undesirable behavior..  Questions are therapist approved and specifically taught to promote boundary setting and coping mechanisms. 

What take home materials are offered?

Handouts are given covering the topics covered in the program, as well as a bookmark that contains toll-free numbers that offer assistance to those in need. 

Why is Unafraid’s message so important?

Unafraid’s purpose is “starting conversations that matter”. By teaching teens and tweens  terms like gaslighting, narcissism, love-bombing  and body autonomy, we are giving our youth the power and vocabulary to recognize and avoid abusive relationships. When kids are able to understand and vocalize what is happening to them, they are better able to set boundaries or get help.  Unafraid is dedicated to making a difference by delivering proactive education in identifiable and engaging productions. 

What science supports Unafraid’s message?

Loveisrespect.org reports that one in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, a figure that far exceeds rates of other types of youth violence. It also found that only 33% of teens who were in a violent relationship ever told anyone about the abuse. 

Do you have after school or evening programs?

Yes. We offer great programs for after school and in the evening. They are great for PTA/PTO meetings and school festivals. You can also SAVE when scheduling a program during the daytime while hosting another one after school hours. 

Are your programs available year-round?

Yes. Every program is available year-round. 

Why do Unafraid’s programs work so well?

VISUAL learning is said to be one of the most effective ways for a child to absorb information without being bored!  Unafraid introduces important terms and concepts that are easily identifiable, memorable and intriguing. We use pop culture references, familiar characters and humourous  world building to teach important lessons that are sorely needed in today’s world.
