BCT - Field Trip Guide
BCT Field Trip Guide
Where should you go?
Buses, Vans & Cars: Arrive on the 11th Avenue North side of the BJCC. You will be greeted by a BCT staff member and given further instructions. Bus groups are asked to remain seated on the bus until met by a BCT staff member. Vans will park on the gated lot on 11th Avenue North. Cars may also park in this lot. Once this lot is full, any overflow cars will be directed to park in the large lot on 19th Street North. These patrons will then walk across the street, go down the steps, and follow the BCT signs to the theatre lobby entrance.
Lift Buses: Arrive on the 19th Street North side of the BJCC and drop off in the circular drive where there is a smooth ramp leading down to the Theatre lobby.
Our Wee Folks and MainStage theaters can be accessed through the main Theatre lobby and the Charlotte Lane theatre - where our Tiny Tyke Tales take place - can be accessed through the administrative offices which are connected to the Legacy Arena.
