Schoolchildren look so cute dressed up like a turkey or Santa Claus for the school holiday play. Their teacher has patiently rehearsed their lines with them for months and it is almost time for the big event. They deserve to have their name in the spotlight and with a beautifully printed playbill, it can be. Parents or teachers can order printing online to create these on a budget.
A playbill can be as simple or extravagant as desired. For an elementary school play, brochures should suffice. These are available in standard and oversized versions and can be folded in different ways. A picture of the cast can be used for the cover or older children in the school can create cover art. Either way, full color printing lets the array of hues jump off the page.
For middle and high school plays, a booklet may be more appropriate. A picture and bio of each cast member can be included and the actors can even make their personal thanks on the pages. Setting aside an area for sponsors recognizes those who contributed set materials, costumes, and financing to the production.
Cast members will feel like superstars when they see their name in these brochures or books. Thick paper allows them to safely carry the item in their backpacks to show friends and family who could not attend. Everyone will be proud of the budding actors and will not want to miss the next play. The little entertainer can even autograph the playbill for “fans.”
When they order printing online from a short run printer, customers can request small quantities to prevent waste. Using ticket sales to determine order quantity and adding some extra to accommodate last-minute attendees is a good rule of thumb. Guests will receive their playbill as they enter the auditorium and select their seat.
