The 2017-18 Field Trip Series began on September 26th and will run through May 9, 2018. Please contact Michael Flannigan, Education Program Coordinator, regarding availability for the remaining student performances –


The Field Trip performances are provided to you and your students FREE-OF-CHARGE thanks to generous donors who underwrite the cost of each performance.


Performances are typically 60 minutes in length with no intermission unless noted otherwise.


We strongly advise that confirmed groups secure transportation as soon as possible. Individual groups are responsible for coordinating and funding their transportation to and from the Theatre.


Tickets are not issued for field trip performances. Your confirmation email serves as your group’s admission to the show.


Field trip attendees enter the Theatre through the main entrance, which faces Fred Waring Dr., where you will be greeted by the McCallum Theatre’s usher staff. Each group will then be seated in a pre-determined section of the Theatre.


School buses will be greeted in the semi-circle driveway, directly in front of the Theatre, by a McCallum Theatre representative.


Carpools should park on the west side of the Theatre, which is the left side of the Theatre as you are facing the main entrance. DO NOT park on College of the Desert property without a CoD parking permit because you risk a ticket.


Plan your transportation and travel time so that your group arrives at the Theatre 5-10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time:

Effective 12/6/17; field trip patrons will no longer be seated once the performance has begun. This is the same late-seating policy as the evening and weekend performances at the McCallum Theatre. The exception being that field trip performances are 60 minutes or less, thus there IS NOT a late-seating break.
