PCPA is a year-round professional theatre company providing a mix of live theatre productions in Santa Maria in both the Marian and Severson Theatres on the campus of Allan Hancock College and in the summer in the outdoor Solvang Festival Theater.
Summer Theater Program - PCPA is offering two week-long acting camps for young actors, the Young People’s Project (YPP) for 13 – 18 year olds and YPP Jr. for 7 to 12 year olds. Explore the world of an artist and an actor through workshops taught by professional staff of the PCPA summer company. Students will build a foundation for dramatic creativity as they are encouraged to express ideas and collaborate as a group in order to create an original performance showcase.
YPP Jr. is scheduled in July and includes seven days of stimulating workshops specially tailored for the younger performer in acting, singing, and dancing. These half-day sessions – 9am – 2pm – lead up to building a theatrical showcase. A dinner is planned and a ticket to a performance of Hairspray in Solvang is included.
YPP is scheduled in July and includes eight full days – 9am – 5pm – of inspiring workshops in acting, singing, and dancing. Students will work alongside theatre professionals creating a theatrical showcase. The YPP camp includes tickets to Hairspray and The Two Gentlemen of Verona and dinner with members of the company.
