El Cajon is holding a forum on Wednesday, January 27, to discuss the future of the East County Performing Arts Center (ECPAC). This long-time performance center was recently closed for renovation, and the City Council is looking for ideas for improving it. If you have ideas to share, or just want to be part of the process, the meeting will be at the Ronald Reagan Center at 195 E. Douglas Ave., starting at 7:00 pm. I couldn’t find a link for more information, but you can call the City Manager’s office at 619-441-1716.

Ashley Fishman plays Leslie Burke and Dallas Perry is Jesse Aarons in the CYT East production of ‘Bridge to Terebithia”
This weekend Christian Youth Theater, East County, presents the musical version of “Bridge to Terebithia” at the East County Performing Arts Center (ECPAC). This is a heartwarming story of friendship, discovery, and loss with a backing of great songs including “Ain’t No Mountain,” “You Didn’t Have to Be so Nice,” and “Rhythm of the Rain.” The production features 20 Santee youth among the over 60 young people in the cast and crew.
Because the El Cajon City Council has decided to close ECPAC for “renovations,” this will be the last CYT production there. In addition, the run has had to be cut from the usual two weekends to just one. To partially make up for that, there will be a special discount “Preview Night” on Thursday in addition to the regular Friday/Saturday night and Saturday/Sunday afternoon performances. This is a show you will enjoy and remember for a long time, and is a great family activity. Tickets are $14 for adults and $12 for children and can be purchased at the door.
Performances: Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:00 pm; Saturday, Sunday at 2:00 pm.

Last night my daughter and I helped out with concessions at opening night for “Traditions of Christmas” at the East County Performing Arts Center (ECPAC). Although we spent pre-performance and intermission serving goodies, we did get to slip in and watch most of the show, and we had a wonderful time. This is an immensely entertaining annual production by Christian Community Theater, featuring singing, dancing, and a live Nativity Pageant complete with real animals. If you are in the mood for some Christmas cheer, need to get into the holiday mood, or just enjoy a good musical production, you have to get over to see it. For more information…
If I am able to get any pictures before a performance, I will post them.
