Booking a show:
Please call (805) 378-1441 or email kromero@vcccd.edu

  • Shows are booked on a first come first served basis and are booked several weeks to several months in advance. Multiple groups will be booked in a day if there is space. The theater seating allows for an audience of approximately 300 people.
  • Parking:
    • A convenient bus drop off site is available.
    • If your group is traveling in cars, please allow a minimum of 20 minutes to find parking as the zoo is located on a college campus and can be busy during the week. A $2.00 parking permit will need to be purchased for each personal vehicle. Parking Permit Machines are conveniently located in each parking lot. Click here for directions to the parking permit machines.
  • Since the zoo is closed to the general public during the week we cannot offer a place to stay for lunch or snack. However, there are two local public parks located very nearby that you are welcome to use for a lunch break before returning to your destination.
