“Professional Theater on the Central Coast”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Gone to Broadway shows and LA shows - PCPA shows are just as good if not better because there is not a bad seat in the house. The stadium style thrust stage makes you feel like you are part of the show. No matter what is showing, it will be great!

“Excellent Regional Theatre”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

PCPA Can't be beat for local entertainment. Very high quality productions. Worth every penny and a real bargain compared to the high priced theatres in LA or SF. If you're in town when something is playing you won't be disappointed.

“Always GREAT!”

Thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Christmas Eve seeing The Wizard of Oz! These productions are always 'top notch'. Amazing talent and creativity. This type of production makes it fun to support the Arts!

“Supreme quality and value”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

It's worth going just because the ticket prices are so good. Once you experience the quality of the actors, the value becomes obvious and you'll want a season pass regardless whether you get one. Great performances!
