What is TIE?
TIE presents a wide range of in-school performing arts experiences which are both educational and highly entertaining. These shows tour to the furthest corners of Australia and now, New Zealand. Join over 500 schools who regularly book from our ever-expanding catalogue of performances.
Why book with TIE?
Educational Value
Our shows are designed specifically for the educational environment they are performed in. Rather than seeing entertainers that simply demonstrate the skills they use in other contexts, TIE performers genuinely perform to and interact with your students. You'll be booking a show with real educational value.
Latest News

Remote schools are often hesitant to enquire about our shows, thinking that we probably won't come to their areas.

TIE GOES EVERYWHERE !! Most regions will find that every performance in this catalogue will tour their area at some stage of the year.

Actually, remote schools are very important to us. Without them, our long distance tours would be less viable and far less interesting !

If yours is a small school, unable to meet our minimum requirements, give us a call anyway, and we'll see what we can do!
