Risk-Free PTA , PTSA, PTO: FUNDRAISER SHOW:
All funds from tickets sold above the breakeven point of $400 are designated for YOUR FUNDRAISER. Other ideas: If you would like a daytime preview show, to get the kids excited about coming back to the evening show, for a total of 2 shows: use $600 instead of $400. Or, 2 daytime preview shows plus one evening show = $700. Or, 3 daytime preview shows plus one evening show = $800. Once the older kids laugh and laugh during the daytime preview show, they will come back for the evening show. If ticket sales do not reach the breakeven point, no worries, just pay us the amount raised by ticket sales. (This would only happen if the weather suddenly turned bad just hours before Showtime). Most schools sell tickets the week BEFORE the event to ensure high sales and extra profit beyond breakeven for the PTA fundraiser. Most families will drive out, even in the rain, if they have already purchased their tickets the week before.
PRICES: ways to lower cost:
1) Earn a commission by allowing the sale of Geddy the Gecko items: posters, T’s, stuffed animal sand geckos, etc.
FREE show ! How can my School or PTA host a FREE show or a Very Low Cost Show?
Students do NOT purchase a ticket: EVERYONE enters the cafeteria to see the show. If your school does not want to pay a flat normal fee of $400 for a show, your school can earn all of the fee back by selling 100 gecko lizard stuffed animals in the weeks prior to the event. We charge you up front: $400 for the show and $100 for 100 gecko lizard stuffed sand animals. We mail you the 100 geckos a few weeks prior to the show. Then you sell 100 geckos for $5 each. You will then have $500 in income to reimburse your school for the $500 fee you already paid. (What if the school does not sell all the geckos?) If you only sell 60 geckos, you will have made $300 in income and your show will have then cost you the prepaid $500 minus $300 income = only $200 out of pocket instead of the original regular price of $400 that we would have charged if you had just paid for the show without any gecko stuffed animals. If you like, we can even give you $40 back if you return the 40 leftover geckos, so then your out of pocket expense would have been $200 minus $40 = $160.
2) Sell tickets/ snacks: reimburse school or PTA for part/all of cost!

What Others Are Saying about John Mallory:
Regarding John Mallory: I have worked with him for a couple years now and he is great! He is very reliable and the children love him. I have never heard a negative thing about any performance that he has done for my company.Susan Weirling, After School Programs, Inc.
I highly recommend John Mallory to come out to your school to involve the students in the Geddy the Gecko assembly. The students loved him. He did conform to all of the County Public Schools requirements in order to come to the schools.Vicki Cammarano, Coral Springs Elementary School.
He was so well received, and the students enjoyed his show very much. He conforms to School District policy, and has a good rapport with children. Not only did he perform for our afterschool program, but our Fine Arts Team saw his show and was very impressed and had him perform for Fine Arts Day. Enjoy the show!Jane Walters SACC Director, Whispering Pines Elementary School (561 218-5823).
