Pricing ...

Fee Range: $650–$995 + GST

Some half-day and full-day workshops have higher fees – please visit the individual artist pages to see each one’s specific fee range.

If your school is facing severe budget challenges, please inquire about qualifying for our Assistance Program.

Many of our artists offer a $200 discount if you are able to match up with a nearby school on the same day (one of you in the morning, one in the afternoon). To qualify for this discount your school needs to:

  1. Complete our artist survey (click on the link below) which lets us know which presenters you are interested in and any booking parameters you have like preferring morning or afternoon, etc.
  2. Send out a simple email to nearby schools to let them know what presentation you are wanting to bring in. We send you a template for this which you can forward to them.
  3. If a matching school can be arranged on the same day, then both you and the matching school each receive $200 off your presentation fee. Even if it’s a school other than the ones you reached out to who contacts us independently – as long as you have done the above two steps and a school can match up with you, you would still receive the discount.

The artists who currently offer this incentive are: HOJA, Ian Porteous, Kinnie Starr, Paul Isaak, RupLoops, Safire, School of M.O.V.E.S., and Will Stroet. Note that HeARTbeat Theatre offers a slightly different incentive which is featured on their individual page.

If you have not already done so, click below to rank the top three artists you’d like to see tour to your area. There’s no obligation to book, doing so will simply register your school in our database and help us co-ordinate the artists’ tours where there is the most interest for them.

Once you’ve completed the survey we can let you know possible dates for your preferred artists.

• EDUCATIONAL SONGS/VIDEOS – Will Stroet

Just Imagine

This song inspires children to work towards their goals. It can be used to begin discussions about what they would like to be when they grow up and the things they will need to do to get there one day. “If you imagine it, and if you work at it, and if you never quit, well just imagine.”

Just Imagine Mp3

Just Imagine video

 La Récréation

This song introduces lots of great French vocabulary around the theme of recess and school. This song is a new addition to Will Stroet’s French and bilingual performances. “C’est la récréation, mangeons notre collation, ensemble, nous jouons, c’est la récréation.”

La Récréation Mp3

La Récréation video

Grama An’s Anagrams

This song is a fun introduction to anagrams and is one of a series of songs from Will Stroet’s “Wordplay” album, which is all about having fun with language and literacy. Take a word, mix up the letters, make a new word. Grama An is an anagram of the word “anagram”!

About Us ...

This website is a collaborative effort between Fat Cat Productions, the artists, and many educators & administrators with the goal of bringing artists and schools together more easily to impact Canadian students with positive and engaging presentations. We welcome your feedback as to how well this site meets your needs and any suggestions you may have on how to improve it.

Fat Cat Productions has been providing school presentations since 1998, most notably the acappella group HOJA who’ve performed over 4,000 presentations nationwide. Over the years, many of our past clients have asked us if we could recommend other artists of the same high quality as HOJA, as they’ve often been disappointed with presenters whose promotional materials looked good but simply did not deliver on entertaining and impacting their students.

These are some of the criteria we used in selecting the artists featured on this site:

professional artists with at least 5 years of experience performing for Canadian students

presentations that are not only entertaining but deliver a valuable message to students

artists who offer differently-themed presentation options

glowing testimonials from past school presentations, including an endorsement from Artstarts in Schools (the organization which co-ordinates the majority of presentations for every school district in British Columbia)

most importantly — values in line with our own regarding professional integrity, mission to reach students, and respectful client relationships

We truly hope that this site meets your needs, and that you can feel confident booking any of these presenters to entertain and impact your students.

Ready to Book / Contact Us ...

The first easy step in booking a presentation is to complete our short Artist Survey which will let us know your top artist choices and the time of year or specific date you’re hoping for. Once we’ve gathered the amount of interest for each artist in an area, we will contact you to discuss possible tour dates and the exact fee.

If you’re eager to reserve a date with your favourite artist rather than waiting to hear from us about the tours coming to your area, please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to discuss with you immediately.

“I have met with the owners of Canadian School Presenters and have found them to be very easy to deal with. They are very down to earth; they take pride in all that they do and it shows in the way they relate to their performers, the schools they work with, and the students who enjoy their presentations. I would strongly recommend them to any school looking to provide great entertainment, a positive message, and good role models for their students!”

Hugh Kurz, Superintendent – Saskatoon Public School Division


“The entertainment value was awesome, the performers are right up there with the best we’ve ever had. We appreciate the quality and value you provide, the booking process was easy, and we are happy to book through CSP again in the future.”

“Dianna David was awesome, one of the top presentations we’ve had. Ruploops had great interaction with students — a perfect balance of content and entertainment. Safire really connected with her message. We loved it! And we always enjoy having HOJA at our school — they get our students involved & excited; and the message at the end is great! We appreciate how easy it is to book through you and we look forward to working with you again next season.”

Vince Spila, Dr Bernard Brosseau, Bonnyville


“We’ve enjoyed all of our performances thus far — booking with you is very organized, fluid and easy! I appreciated Dianna bringing cultural diversity in and engaging the students with her excellent message, especially for the older grades. HOJA always does a great job, they’re really natural together and the message worked well for the school. Ruploops has excellent control with the audience, his music was enjoyed & appropriate, and he provided good cultural perspective and educational value. Motivational Magic; was very engaging, the kids loved it, the activities were well-suited to the age group, and the bucket filling message was easy to understand.”
