    Young abolitionists, Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony, are full of hopes, dreams, and seemingly common purpose when they meet in Rochester in the 1840s. However, as they grow to become great agents of change, their movements collide, and their alliance and friendship is severely tested. From auspicious beginnings in Rochester, through a civil war, and to the highest halls of government, The Agitators is the story of the turbulent and enduring forty-five year friendship between two of America’s greatest agitators. Mat Smart’s historical play of rebellion and revolution, personal passion and sacrifice, reverberates powerfully in our America of today.

    Updated - COVID-19 Attendance Policies
    March 14, 2022

    In light of improvement in the current COVID-19 public health conditions, beginning on Monday, March 14, 2022, PCPA has changed its COVID-19 attendance policies. PCPA will no longer require proof of vaccination or a negative test before admittance to the theatre. PCPA will now strongly encourage mask wearing inside the theatre, but masks will not be required of audience members. Concessions will still be required to be consumed outside the theatre lobby. These changes are in keeping with updated guidance from the Center for Disease Control, the Santa Barbara County Department of Public Health and Allan Hancock College District practices for visitors to the campus.

    The safety of our audience is very important to PCPA and we will still provide the following enhanced health and safety precautions:

    • The theatre building has an enhanced air filtration utilizing MERV 13 filters. (PLEASE DRESS WARMLY, WEAR LAYERS)
    • The theatre, lobby area and restrooms are cleaned and disinfected after every performance.
    • Multiple hand sanitizers are available throughout the lobby.
    • Touchless ticketing - all tickets are scanned upon entrance to the theatre.
    • Digital program is available via a QR code posted throughout the lobby or on our website.
    • Limited concessions are available outside the theatre lobby.
    • At this time there will be no “stage door” opportunities with the actors after the show.

    PCPA’s entire staff is fully vaccinated including staff, guest artists and volunteers. While mask wearing indoors will no longer be required of audience members, mask wearing is still strongly encouraged and all theatre patrons are welcome to wear masks in accordance with their comfort and health needs. These guidelines are contingent upon the continuing improvement and stability of the public health situation, and therefore subject to change. If the COVID situation worsens in the region, more restrictive measures may need to return.

    By purchasing a ticket to a PCPA production and/or entering a PCPA/Allan Hancock College venue, theatergoer assumes all risks associated with entering a place of public gathering and voluntarily waives any and all claims and potential claims against PCPA and Allan Hancock College relating to COVID-19 or any other communicable disease, or illness, or that arise from or relate in any way to, however caused, the risk of exposure or actual or alleged exposures to a bacteria, virus or other pathogen capable of causing COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness, in each case whether the actual or alleged circumstances giving rise to any claim or potential claim occur before, during or after the event.

    All performances are subject to re-scheduling and cancellation. Refunds will not be issued but tickets will be credited to your PCPA account for a future performance. The PCPA credit will not expire. The safety and well-being of all our patrons, actors, volunteers & employees is very important to PCPA and we thank you for understanding. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at the theater!
