Joint B Street Theatre Field Trip Program

A new way to experience Sutter’s Fort!

Friends of Sutter’s Fort is proud to partner with the B Street Theatre and California State Parks to offer a special joint field trip opportunity for school groups. Through this program, groups may attend a performance at B Street, and schedule a same day field trip at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park!

Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park is just one block from the Sofia Theatre, home to B Street. As neighbors, our organizations hope this this joint field trip option will give more students the opportunity to visit both locations in the same day.

In 2019, B Street Theatre will present Black Beauty from August 26 to September 8.

In November, B Street will offer Wizard of Oz.
