PCPA - Pacific Conservatory Theatre Summer 2017 - Santa Maria & Solvang


PCPA's 53rd season continues this summer with dazzling and inspired productions in both Santa Maria and Solvang from June 15 through October 1.

The family favorite - Disney's Beauty and the Beast - opens the summer season in the Solvang Festival Theater June 15 and plays through July 2 under the stars. This Broadway hit musical, which quickly sold out this past winter in Santa Maria, is based on the classic fairy tale and features a heartfelt story and an unforgettable score, including "Be Our Guest," "Belle," and the title song, "Beauty and the Beast." "PCPA's splendid production will remind theatergoers why this fairy tale remains truly timeless." - The Tribune

Be swept away into the enchanted world of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The Broadway musical tells the timeless tale of Belle, who feels trapped in a provincial town, and a prince who is truly trapped under the spell of an enchantress, in the form of a hideous Beast. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the spell will be broken and he will be transformed to his former self. If not, he and his household will be doomed for all time. This classical musical love story is a magical tale that comes to life with unforgettable characters, astonishing sets, and costumes, and a stunning score including “Be Our Guest,” “Gaston,” “Human Again,” and the title song.

The uproarious farce, Lend Me A Tenor The Musical, plays July 6 - 23 in the Solvang Festival Theater. The riotous tale of mistaken identities and unexpected romance explodes with delight in this brand new musical comedy with music by PCPA's own Brad Carroll. "..a bona fide, booming big Broadway-esque spectacle.." - Santa Maria Sun

Coming to the Marian Theatre July 19 - 22 and Solvang Festival Theater July 27 - August 20 is PCPA’s production of Disney’s Newsies The Musical - the Tony Award-winning Broadway phenomenon. Exploding with dazzling choreography this hit show tells the true story of a band of underdogs who took on the most powerful names in New York in a fight for what's right.

"If music be the food of love, play on." Shakespeare's laugh-filled Twelfth Night plays first in Santa Maria from August 16 - 19, then under the stars in Solvang from August 24 - September 10. When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows. Twelfth Night combines low pranks with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with sublime poetry and exquisite songs.

Closing the 53rd season is Fences, August Wilson’s gripping Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning masterpiece that will swing onto the Marian Theatre stage from September 15 - October 1. Troy Maxson, a trash collector and former baseball hero in the Negro League, represents the struggle for justice during the 1950s.

Artistic Director Mark Booher said of the 53rd season, “It’s massive humanity that matters in the human experience.  This season we’ll touch the ties of family and faith that bind, the unifying polemics and world shaking words, the love for which we’ll break our hearts and risk all to rejuvenate.  We’ll expand our circle and venture into deeper connections that we can rehearse in the theatre and play out in the world – seeing, knowing, loving.  Massive humanity, that’s what it’s all about.”
