Please fill out all required fields and choose 3 possible times for ONE show. You must be able to receive email from Nick Strobel at the email you enter (check your email filter settings!). Use this form for EACH school's show. If you want to reserve multiple shows, use this form multiple times for EACH of the shows you want.
