    Wednesday, 7/13 - PROLOGUE
    Friday, 7/15 - TALKBACK
    When problematic postulant, Maria, proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her hard-won rapport with the youngsters, and her generosity of spirit, gradually soften the sternness of the broken-hearted Captain. With love in the air, but war on the horizon, the family find their Austrian homeland occupied by Nazi forces who demand submission and service. Inspired by the true story of the Von Trapp family, and their daring escape over the mountains to Switzerland, The Sound of Music remains one of the most inspirational and beloved musicals of all time.
    Show Advisory
    Though this production is best suitable for children 8 years and up, it does contain adult themes related to the rise of Nazism in Germany and Austria, so please use your own discretion when deciding what is right for your family.

    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!
