I've not been disappointed with the theater performances by PCPA and I've been to quite a few. Shakespeare and recent Broadway plays are presented in the round and in an intimate setting. The actors are experienced and the performances have been very professional. What a jewel we have available in this small town!

We got the last two tickets and I'm so glad we did! I read about some of the famous graduates of the school of fine arts so thought I'd check it out. I saw a wonderful production of the Tempest. A great break from a long business trip!

The Wizzard of Oz was one great production and I would return to view it again if it were playing this month. PCPA really created a wonderful play with this one. Hope they do it again very soon.

I love everything about PCPA...the acting, costumes, lighting, scenery, venue (both SM and Solvang), price. I am always shocked when I talk to locals who have never been. It is a true gem of the Central Coast.

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!
