UPDATE: Individual tickets for Season 59 go on sale October 14.
Pacific Conservatory Theatre’s 2022-23 season opens in November with the 2013 Broadway adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s classic musical Cinderella (back by popular demand after a successful run at PCPA in 2015). It’s a fresh, contemporary take on the familiar tale, full of new surprises, familiar friends, and of course the unforgettable music.
PCPA’s 59th season also features the Southern California premiere of a sparkling new stage adaptation by Joseph Hanreddy of Jane Austen’s beloved story Emma. The story of matchmaking misadventures, misplaced confidence, and matchmaking in Highbury Park plays in the Marian Theatre in March 2023, then under the stars in the Solvang Festival Theater in June.
Filling out the season:
- The River Bride by Marisela Trevino Orta—a Latino folklore fairy tale full of mystery, family, true love, and unexpected visitors set in a fishing village along the Amazon River.
- Bright Star by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell—a powerful and heartfelt Bluegrass musical based on a true story of love and redemption in the American South.
- American Mariachi by Jose Cruz Gonzalez—a vibrant, infectious, heartwarming story that brings live music and the freedom to dream big to a young girl and her family in the 1970s.
- The Book of Will by Lauren Gunderson—a charming and mad chase to save the legacy of William Shakespeare by creating the First Folio of the Bard’s beloved writing.
