I've been coming to PCPA shows for over 20 years now, and have never been disappointed. I was lucky enough to see Mother Road this weekend, and was blown away by the performances of the whole ensemble, the lighting and the sets. Next up is Stephen Sondheim's Into The Woods, and I know this is going to be another Stella show. If you're looking for good quality theatre, comparable to Broadway quality, don't hesitate to book tickets at PCPA. Highly recommended!

What an amazing production! As a fan of "The Grapes of Wrath" and having spent time around Salinas, and the whole valley down to Bakersfield, this was an awesome story line! It was so well supported by professional and truly delicious acting! The set was lovely and provided the perfect support for the story and the amazing actors/actresses who made it come alive!

This school attracts the best singer and dancers. No musical has ever disappointed. I go with a group. of friends on Preview Night. Seldom have I heard a faltering or stumbling line. The sets, costuming and dance numbers are faultless. Many of the student performers sing and act at a professional level.
Last night we saw "Brighton Beach Memories". Perfect casting, comedy timing was faultless and the staging and costumes were just right.

I took a group of 25 people to see the Brighton Beach Memoirs in Santa Maria. The theater was clean and beautiful, the people working were very helpful. My group rep Kelly was amazing and this production was OUTSTANDING. My group laughed non-stop. The cast was perfection.

We love driving to Santa Maria for plays at PCPA! We live in San Luis Obispo so I try to get to shows in the afternoon. Yesterday saw that a charter bus had come from Santa Barbara, I am glad to know that folks from there come up, that PCPA is recognized there as the premier theater company it is. After the play there was a Talk Back with the cast. While I had known it was part of Hancock College, I had not known how the educational part worked, but three of the cast were teachers, and three were students. Last play I saw was The Little Mermaid - it was spectacular - wonderful for people of all ages. The staging, singing, costumes and acrobatics were unbelievable.

Every single cast member was exceptional. Perfectly cast. The staging was top rate, one of the best I've seen at PCPA both in Santa Maria and Solvang. If you want a special evening out in this area, this is it.

PCPA certainly did do the Neil Simon play, Brighton Beach Memoirs justice. It was an intense and moving production with wonderful, and needed, comic relief.

Outstanding production of Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach. From the set, the theatre to the excellent cast, this was theatre at its very best. Top notch for a very reasonable $38 ticket price. Not a bad seat in the house in my opinion.
