A portion of the ticket sales for the Pacific Conservatory Theatre’s July 22 Solvang performance of “Man of La Mancha” will benefit the Lompoc Theatre Project’s efforts to restore and reopen the historic Lompoc theater.

A classic musical, “Man of La Mancha,” is the summer production of the PCPA, which is based on the Santa Maria campus of Hancock College. The play will move this month to Solvang’s Festival Theater, where performances will run from July 17 through Aug. 16.

All tickets for the July 22 performance are $40 (plus a $2.39 handling fee) and include both a pre- and after-show reception with the cast and director Mark Herrier, who is also president of the Lompoc Theatre Project's board of directors.

“I was part of the original company that opened the (Solvang) Theater Festival, and was proud to stand on that stage opening night 41 years ago,” Herrier said. “To return home to the place of my birth, both literally and artistically, has been one of the highlights of my life.”

The Lompoc Theatre Project is a tax-exempt nonprofit working to restore the Lompoc Theatre as a venue for arts, entertainment, culture and education for the community and its visitors. For more information, visit
