Program Availability

Program availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. Because availability of some artists is limited, we encourage you to apply as early as possible.


When scheduling a program, please have the following information available:

  • space available for performances

  • school name, mailing address, and telephone number

  • number of performances and preferred times

  • number of classes for each grade level

  • grade levels and number of students

  • two or three alternative dates

  • name of the program in which you are interested

Program Fees

A confirmation is sent upon scheduling. Invoices will be sent following the performance. Artists may not accept payments. Make your check payable to Young Audience of Abilene and mail to the Young Audiences office, 1101 N. 1st, Abilene, Texas 79601. Some funding assistance is available.

Travel Fees

When Young Audiences performers travel more than 25 miles from Abilene, it is necessary to add mileage charges to the cost of the program. When artists travel far from their home base, multiple bookings are sometimes necessary to make a tour viable.


All programs when scheduled and confirmed are considered binding. Should illness, inclement weather, or other unforeseen circumstances prevent the artist from performing, Young Audiences will offer the school the option to reschedule, substitute, or receive a full refund. Confirmed programs canceled by the school at any time are subject to full payment since artists cannot schedule other programs when committed to a date.
