Our History

Pacific Cost Repertory Theatre was founded in 2009 with the purpose of bringing professional-quality musical theatre to the trivalley area. In 2011 PCRT was thrilled to be appointed the resident musical theatre company at Pleasanton’s newly-renovated Firehouse Arts Center and since then has been performing in that lovely space.

PCRT strives to distinguish itself via the quality of its shows. Casts are composed of professional-level performers and include a mix of Actor’s Equity Association and/or long time experienced actors and dancers. PCRT’s production team includes some of the bay area’s best-known technicians of theatre such as award-winning musical director Pat Parr, and lauded New York Times lighting designer Mike Oesch, to name only a few.

In its brief existence, PCRT has produced several exceptional shows. Its production of Chicago was described by Pat Craig of the Contra Costa Times as, “a sassy, sexy and sometimes sultry production… a sensual delight” and its July 2012 production of Hairspray received 10 nominations for direction, choreography and individual performances in a local musical from BroadwayWorld.com.

Origins

Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre (PCRT) began as a dream of founding member David Judson. Upon completing his MFA, David hoped to bring professional level theatre to the trivalley area. David found a partner in award-winning musical director Pat Parr and shortly after Joy Sherratt and Scott Maraj joined the venture. David, Pat, Joy and Scott formalized their shared vision by incorporating Pacific Cast Repertory Theatre as a California 501(c)3 non-profit corporation and have been delighting audiences with professional-level musical theatre in Pleasanton since 2010.
