On our Main Stage, Santa Paula Theater Center, strives to provide something for everyone’s taste while continually challenge our audiences to expand their theatrical boundaries. Each season we bring a newer, somewhat edgier work that you most likely will not have a chance to see elsewhere in the area as well as keep classics of the stage from disappearing into obscurity. On our Back Stage we perform original works, new performers, new directors, and One act plays. This area is an exciting black box. Several times a year we have live concerts of varied talents. In 1985 the Santa Paula Theater was born in the basement of a local church. In 1988 SPTC opened its first season in the elegant Craftsman-style building which is named to the National Register of Historic Places.
