The 2016-17 Field Trip Series began on September 27th and will run through March 22, 2017. Please contact Michael Flannigan, Education Program Coordinator, directly 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.


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.


We suggest a review of theater etiquette with students prior to the performance, so that everyone may have an enjoyable experience.


ALL 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.


Car pools 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.


The McCallum Theatre and McCallum Theatre Education are located in Palm Desert, California at 73000 Fred Waring Drive, between Monterey Avenue and San Pablo Avenue, on the southwest corner of the College of the Desert campus.
