Chandler Center for the Arts does accept purchase orders. A copy of the purchase order should be mailed or faxed to our office no later than four (4) weeks before the date of your field trip.

All changes in group size need to be made no later than four weeks before the date of your field trip by the contact person who made the initial reservation. After this date you are responsible for payment for all seats reserved. Be aware that many shows sell out and there may not be additional seats available after the time of your initial booking.

Once you have paid for a certain numbers of seats, those seats are reserved for your group and cannot be sold to anyone else.

Limited scholarships are available for Title 1 schools. Contact 480-782-2683 or email.

We ask that groups arrive no later than 20 minutes prior to show time. It takes several minutes for groups to get off the bus and get seated in the theater. With two shows per day, we are unable to delay the start of the show for groups who arrive late. Please note that seating generally begins 20-30 minutes before show time.

The Chandler Center for the Arts is located at:
250 North Arizona Avenue
Chandler, AZ 85225

Directions are available here.

After dropping off students, bus drivers will be given instructions about where to park for the duration of the performance. Vans and private vehicles will park in the Chandler Center for the Arts parking lot, in un-numbered spots. Parking is free of charge.

If you arrive by bus, your bus will be greeted by a staff member or volunteer from the theater. They will give instructions to the group as to where they should line up, and they will also provide parking information to the bus driver. Once your group has lined up, the House Manager will greet you and assign an usher(s) to take you to your seats. The ushers are volunteers who donate their time to make it possible for Chandler Center for the Arts to be available to school audiences. The ushers will instruct your group to fill in every seat in your designated area. If your group is traveling by private vehicle, you will park in any un-numbered spot and proceed to the theater where you will be greeted by a staff member and told where to line up.

The House Manager will create a seating plan to provide all groups the best view possible, taking into account the group size, age of the students, special needs in the group, and the adult-to-student ratio. Seating plans are made the day of the show, so the Chandler Center for the Arts cannot tell a group where they'll be seated prior to arrival.

Theaters are often heavily air-conditioned to compensate for hot stage lights. Please encourage students and chaperones to dress appropriately.

The Chandler Center for the Arts Web site and brochure offer age guidelines for each of our shows. Children must be 3 or older to be allowed in the theater. Parents who bring babies or toddlers will be asked to remain in the lobby throughout the show.

Food, gum and beverages, are not allowed inside the theater, so please leave all consumables at school or on your bus. Each theater has a drinking fountain available.

There is no photography or videotaping allowed in the theater, so please save your pictures for the lobby or outside the theater.

There are no individual ticket sales for field trip shows. Anyone attending must be part of a group that has made advance reservations. Only the designated contact person who made the original reservation may make changes to the number attending.

Groups are also welcome to eat lunch on the grounds of the Chandler Center for the Arts.  Please call 480-782-2683 or email to arrange for this.
