The 2019-20 Field Trip Series will be announced on August 1st, 2019. Please contact Michael Flannigan, Education Program Coordinator, to be added to the Field Trip Series email list –


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 60 minutes in length with no intermission.


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


Plan your transportation and travel time so that your group arrives 5-10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. There is no late seating once the performance has begun.


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


Field trip attendees enter 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.


As a result of increased security at public venues in general, please be sure to review the Attendance Policy for Education Performances, which can be found here -
