PCPA’s Thanks

We write with our gracious thanks to all who made the November 15 PCPA Foundation Gala a smash. The gala occurred at the Marian Theatre at Allan Hancock College and celebrated the world premiere of the Brad Carroll/Jeremy Mann musical inspired by Renegade Animation’s Christmas Is Here Again! This charming show continues through December 23 (call the Box Office at 922-8313 for tickets).

The gala gathered Central Coast theater lovers to support PCPA, which enriches our communities with professional theater, its honored Conservatory, and educational outreach. The gala raised $51,000. Special thanks to the Image Factory, Chef Martin Testa, Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards, JP Designs Floral, A Little Something, House of Flowers & Gifts, Rose of Sharon, The Flower Carriage, and the 4H Clubs of Righetti and Pioneer Valley High Schools for floral arrangements.

Bravo! to sponsors: Santa Maria Times, McDonald’s, Ng & Ng Dental and Eye Care, Judge & Mrs. Jed Beebe, Mission Linen Supply, John & Karen Ransome, Nancy Johnson, Moss, Levy Hartzheim, LLP, Steve & Cathy Pepe, Robert & Sandra Dickerson, Royce & Ann Foxworthy Lewellen, the Melsheimer Families, Judy & Hardy Hearn, Linda Burrows, and Keith & Sharon Kuhlenschmidt.

To get involved with the PCPA Foundation, call us at 349-9135. Happy Holidays!
