An essential part of Chico’s growing community of artists, the First Street Theater is the perfect place to catch a show. Tucked away in the historic Collier building in Downtown Chico (a local icon since 1871), it’s home to a full bar, a confection stand with pastries, and a 140-seat theater. With a host of Broadway and Tony Award-winning productions throughout the year, be sure to check in advance to see what’s happening before you finalize your trip dates.
