Schools Program

The Adelaide Fringe Schools Program (formerly YEP!) provides assistance, benefits and resources to teachers booking Fringe experiences for their students.

Fringe gives all artists the opportunity to opt-in to the Schools Program if they have an event that is appropriate for young people aged 2-18 years. Artists are asked to nominate a discounted ticket price for schools and to provide free tickets for teachers as per the DECD teacher/student ratio guidelines* (usually one or two per school group). In 2019, nearly 250 shows opted into the program. All participating shows and events are listed in the annual Schools guide - the 2020 guide will be available on this page from December 2019.

By booking through the Schools Program Coordinator (, teachers have access to discounted tickets, free tickets for teachers, flexible show times, in-school performances, Q&A sessions, workshops, backstage tours, teachers’ notes and more.

Teachers can join the Schools Facebook group and sign up to the Schools Program email list to keep up to date and be informed of additional sessions and offers.

Please note that our 2020 Schools Program Poster Competition has now closed - please contact with any enquiries
