Engage & Learn

PCPA offers experiences for children and adults to enhance your theatrical experience.

Student Matinees

School groups attend our 10:00 am or 1:30 pm matinees for a discounted price.

Outreach Production Tour

PCPA tours a 50-minute literacy based production to local schools. Past productions included: The Circuit, The Purple Marble, Olver Button is a Sissy and Breaking Through. Funding is supported through Children’s Creative Project. This year’s Outreach Production Tour will occur in the fall of 2022.

PCPA Reads

Conservatory students bring books to life by using their speech and voice skills to read children’s books to local elementary school students. This program is designed to promote the excitement of reading by bringing English and Spanish books to life through the talent of our Conservatory students. This program reaches over 5,000 students in one day!

YPP Summer Workshops

Young People Projects (YPP) instruct children ages 9 to 18 in the basics of performing including singing, acting and dancing and culminates in a showcase of the children’s projects.

Teatro YPP

PCPA’s weeklong workshop for children ages 9 to 16. This bilingual workshop creates theatre in the Teatro tradition that will affirm the importance and dignity of the local Latino experience.

PCPA offers complimentary programs for our productions.


These pre-show talks inform our audience members on the history and production elements of the show.

Talk Backs

These post-show discussions involve an audience Q&A with cast and crew members. Always an interesting insight into the creative process.
