For these meals California Thespians provides as part of Festival we are able to make reasonable accommodations with our food vendor for common allergies such as (peanut, soy, milk/dairy, shellfish) and we offer vegetarian options. Any dietary needs outside of these options (include especially sensitive allergies) are to be handled at the Troupe level. Surrounding the Highlander Auditorium are restaurants and grocery options available at both walking and short driving distances should Chaperones need to grab food for a Student.

Throughout the weekend there may be a variety of food vendors available to supplement, all at an additional cost.

California Thespians does not arrange any group rates at area hotels. We have found that often troupes are able to find lower rates than often extended as part of group.
While we have no arrangement with any booking company, we have found that sites such as Trip Advisor can be one of many great starting points when finding a hotel. For example here is a list of highly rated hotels in the area.
