Cancellation Policy

Due to high costs associated with travel arrangements, we are unable to accept cancellations except in the instance that inclement weather causes the sponsor’s location to close AND Bright Star is unable to accommodate the Sponsor in making up the performance later on in the tour.  If a school cancels a program outside of these perameters, Bright Star requires a 60% cancellation fee.
