FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How many students can be accommodated in the theatre at one time?

B Street Student Matinees are held on our B2 stage and can hold between 125 to 130 students, teachers and chaperones at one time. The seating is comprised of cushioned benches with backs that work well for school groups.

What about parking?

There is plenty of parking in our parking lot, and the street parking is not metered. Busses are able to park easily on the street next to the theatre.

Is there any place nearby to have lunch?

Yes. We are located right next to Stanford Park. It’s a baseball and soccer field with park restrooms and bleachers adjacent to the theatre. And weather permitting, it’s a perfect place for picnic/bag lunches and games before or after the show.

Is there an age limit?

Because of the theatre’s intimate size and layout children under 4 are not allowed to attend.

Do you have performances with American Sign Language interpreters?

We arrange specific shows during the run to have interpreters available. Please be sure to contact Valerie Marston at 916-443-5391 x114 or vmarston@bstreettheatre.org for a list of these dates as we have them available.
