 Party Character Pricing:

 

Who do I have to pay for? You just pay for the children who participate on the day (join in, receive the balloons / face painting, etc). Babies who are too young that don't participate or teenagers who are too old that don't participate are not charged for. You are just charged for those who join in, no matter what their age. There is no set age limit.

FAQ - About our children's parties

  • "What makes a Tony Bones Entertainment party so different?" The difference with our shows and party characters is how they are created. Tony Bones Entertainment is run by qualified teachers and theatre professionals.  We write every party that the company performs and each party is planned thoroughly to get the best result on the day.

Each party is character driven with original songs, dances, games and storylines based on that character.  The character is developed, rehearsed and re-rehearsed with trained performers based on customer feedback. We value your opinion and take heed of it.

  • "Why use Tony Bones Entertainment instead of a booking agent? Are there problems with using an agency?" There are several potential issues with booking a character for a children's party through a booking agent. Agencies may have hundreds of performers on their "books". Often agencies don't know the performer that they will book in for a party, often hiring them over the phone or via another agency.  

Agency actors are often simply given a paragraph describing their character and told to "make something up" once they arrive at the party.  The agency then has no idea of the specifics of a particular actor's show. This "hit and miss" style of improvised performing usually results in a lot of game playing and very little engaging story-telling, relevant songs or activities ever taking place in the party.

  • "Why don't you offer Wiggles characters, Hi-5 characters, Batman, Spiderman, Dora the Explorer, Harry Potter, Bob the Builder, or any of those popular characters?" These characters are all covered by copyright owned by the multi-million dollar companies who created them like Disney, Warner & Marvel. The cost for copyright performance permissions for just one character starts at around $10,000 and even then it usually dictates that the character cannot speak. Obviously this large outlay of money means the character would have to be made extremely expensive for a private party.

There are some companies who perform these characters illegally but they put themselves & their performers at serious risk of prosecution by the lawful copyright owners. Offenders who breach copyright can face huge fines if they are caught.

  TONY BONES ENTERTAINMENT TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR CLIENTS  -  Payment & Cancellation Fees 

• a. A $100 non-refundable administration fee will be charged at the time of booking to your credit card. This secures your booking. A performer cannot be booked until this fee has been received.


• b. The remainder of the payment can be paid anytime before the event by credit card or is otherwise required on the day of the performance as a cash payment to the performer. Tony Bones Entertainment apologises but we do not accept cheques or credit cards on the day of the event from private party clients.


• c. Performers are unable to negotiate lowering a price. Any issues with price should be directed to the office on 1300 308 311 before a performer leaves an event.


• d. Cancellation Fees - Once a client has "booked in" a time for a performer, then that time is set aside for their event exclusively. This means that Tony Bones Entertainment will turn away other work wanting the same date and time. Tony Bones Entertainment also complete a significant amount of administrative work immediately after a booking is taken (contract performers, booking forms completed, shuffle other bookings & appointments to suit, client tax invoices, etc). For this reason clients do need to be aware that the $100 administration fee taken at the time of booking is non-refundable if the party is cancelled at any time after it is booked in with Tony Bones Entertainment because that administration work is done immediately at the time of the booking. Furthermore, if the booking is cancelled within 7 days of the actual event, the cancellation fee rises to the total minimum amount quoted for the booking. A party is deemed to be booked in once the $100 administration fee has been received by Tony Bones Entertainment.
