Entertaining, Educating and Enriching through Powerful Live Performances
Poway OnStage is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Federal Tax ID #330366600
The Poway Center for the Performing Arts has become known as "Poway's Intimate Stage." Combine the unique, one-night-only performances with the intimate setting - seats are no more than 106 feet from the stage - and every show is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. With no more than 800 seats, there truly is no bad seat in the house!
Additionally, our center offers free and abundant parking, a welcome respite from the battles Arts lovers endure seeking parking at other concert venues. Our pre-show lobby experience includes craft beer and wine and, on occasion pre-show performers, dance lessons and more. Now, with the addition of Dinner on the Plaza, entertainment seekers can dine under the stars on our beautiful plaza prior to enjoying the performance. By creating an “arts inclusive” atmosphere, we enrich the community with quality performances, unique experiences and valuable memories.
While the seating area is intimate, the theater’s vast stage hosts shows of any scale – from intimate acoustic concerts and one-man shows to full Broadway caliber productions or a 40-person dance troupe. Seating is arranged in two tiers (orchestra level and a second, mezzanine level), where patrons sit, literally, at the feet of performers, providing unprecedented closeness to the show.
The lobby features visual art by professional artists (for purchase). The comfort of the lobby and the grandeur of the theater make this venue a gem in the community.
Parking at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts is always free and convenient! For more information on the PCPA, visit the Poway Center website.
