My Broken Doll is on the Nebraska Arts Council's "Touring Artist Roster" for the 2017-2018 school year.  School districts within 30 miles of Omaha (and schools not located in Nebraska) are not covered in the touring roster. Those schools will book directly with the IHE at least 7 weeks in advance of the performance.   The charge for schools in a 30 mile radius is $300. Among those schools are: Blair, Gretna, Papillion, LaVista, Ralston, Bellevue, Yutan, Elkhorn, Waterloo, Valley, Bennington, and in Iowa - Council Bluffs and Lewis Central. 

Schools beyond the 30 mile range should also book the performance with the IHE, and are then eligible to apply for a grant from the NAC. The fee for a performance is based on distance. The NAC will cover up to 45% of the contractual cost.

Schools in the 30 – 50 mile range from Omaha should contact the IHE to sign a contract with The Circle Theater/ Institute for Holocaust Education at least 7 weeks in advance of the performance date. After signing the contract, the school can apply for grant from the NAC. The fee for those schools will be $550.  The NAC may cover up to 45% of the cost, leaving the school a cost of $302.50.  Among those schools are: Lincoln, Ashland, Arlington, Waverly, Wahoo, and Fremont.
