SOLVANG FESTIVAL THEATER

SOLVANG FESTIVAL THEATER

The 700 seat, outdoor, Solvang Festival Theater operates primarily from June through October providing a space for PCPA productions.

The facility is maintained by Solvang Festival Theater thanks to an energetic board of directors, active patron program, volunteers, and a supportive community.

Since 1974, summer productions in the outdoor theatre have entertained tens of thousands of theatergoers who in large part travel to Solvang from all parts of California and the Western United States with the express desire to experience live theatre.

The relationship between Solvang Festival Theater and PCPA is unique in the theatre world.  For an entire community to wholeheartedly embrace live theatre as Solvang has done for the past 45 years is unequaled.
