“LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We have been attending plays at this venue for years. It is a true gem. Quality actors (pro and student), great production value, lighting, set design and friendly volunteer ushers. Low tickets prices and plentiful free parking makes this a GREAT date night.

“Shakespeare in Santa Maria!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

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!

“What A Gem!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

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!
