PCPA gives the community a voice
BY JOE PAYNE
PCPA Theaterfest presents a special one-show event called Community Speaks: The Other Side of Broadway, which will turn the spotlight toward immigration reform and enforcement in Santa Maria.
Community Speaks is a grassroots theater project that allows conservatory acting students to read and convey locals’ voices. Scenes have been constructed from interviews conducted with members of the community.
The performance will include several individual pieces strung together to create a stream of monologues, song, and poetry. Conservatory acting students will present a snapshot of the community’s perspective on economy, real estate, and crime.
The production is March 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Severson Theatre, 800 S. College Drive, Santa Maria. Tickets are free on a first-come, first-served basis. More information is available at pcpa.org.
