Achievement
The PCPA Foundation is proud to have established the PCPA Endowment Fund. With current assets of approximately $3 million, the Foundation's goal is to grow the Endowment Fund to $5 million. Annually, 5% of the endowment is distributed to PCPA to supplement current operating funds received from Allan Hancock College and from other donations. As the Endowment Fund grows, the 5% grows proportionally.
Mission
With a simple mission "to ensure the future of PCPA," we invite you to come alongside us with your generous gifts via planned giving, legacy gifts, monthly contributions, or one-time gifts to the Endowment Fund. Additionally, contributions toward PCPA Foundation's operating expenses support our activities to grow the Endowment Fund.

Our enviable years of success have only been possible through the dedication and talents of people like you. Come join the cast of our highly valued volunteers.
Artistry
PCPA is the only resident, professional theatre company on the Central Coast. Since 1964, the company has produced nearly 600 mainstage productions while graduating over 6,000 students.
Training
PCPA's conservatory is an intensive two-year training program. Through a challenging blend of studio and shop work, showcases, and mainstage productions, PCPA's resident artists mentor each student in preparation for a career in professional theatre.
Outreach
The Education and Outreach Program brings the experience of professional live theatre to schools through onsite performances and workshops which are literature based, age specific, and explore themes of social and cultural relevance to the community. This program also coordinates student matinees at the Marian Theatre, summer drama camps for younger children and teenage youths interested in performing onstage.
