2019 Driveway Tour Host Application
Thank you for applying to host a Driveway Tour puppet show. If you have further questions you can e-mail drivewaytour@openeyetheatre.org or call 405-229-1694.
What you need to host a Driveway Tour show.
1. A 10 ft by 12 ft outdoor space for the puppet stage and performers.
2. Audience space for 75 + of your neighbors, friends, and community members to sit and watch the show.
3. A rain location in case of bad weather (unfortunately, we cannot reschedule). This could be a nearby rec center, church basement, or park building. We've performed in large garages as well!
4. A willingness to extend an inclusive invitation to your community and provide a light refreshment for your guests (Not applicable to Top Hat Shows).
There are 3 different ways to host a Driveway Tour puppet show
"A Pass The Hat Show" (only 10 performances available): If you live in an under-served neighborhood our Pass the Hat shows are for you. We will work with you to book a show, help you put out an inclusive invitation, and provide the show for free. You will introduce us, provide a refreshment, and pass the hat after the show.

"A Producer Hat Show": Hosting this type of show enables us to send out even more puppet shows each summer. As a "Producer" Host, you are agreeing to raise a minimum of $300.00 in the hat. After we pass the hat, you agree to fill in the extra to meet your $300 goal (The average hat amount over the last few years has been $100 - $150). Many of our producers partner with neighbors to help fill the hat as well. By choosing to host this type of show you are more likely to be on our tour this summer.

"A Top Hat Show" : Hire Open Eye Figure Theatre's Driveway Tour to perform for you and your guests at any location of your choice. "A Top Hat Show" requires a contribution of $400 to cover the actual cost of the show. "Top Hat Shows" are given booking priority and are great for festivals, block parties, birthdays, or any event that you organize. A great way to both host a show and help support the program as whole!

How can you host a puppet show? *
"Pass the Hat Shows" and "Producer Hat Shows" are open to the public and the puppet show is the main event. If you are hosting an event that has another purpose outside the puppet show (i.e. anniversary party, house warming, birthday, or festival) or the event is not open to the public then this type of event would be appropriate for a "Top Hat Show"
