DogFest San Diego & The Art Tail!
transcenDANCE Youth Arts Project was selected by the Jason Mraz Foundation to join Jason on stage for the premier of his first musical, SHINE at Spreckels Theatre on Feb 15 & 16 2020. Our students will be taking the stage alongside this Grammy award-winning singer, and we couldn’t be more excited! The two shows sold out in less than two hours, but transcenDANCE was able to secure a limited number of tickets for donors and sponsors. We have great seats in the orchestra for both shows – Saturday, February 15 at 7 PM or Sunday, February 16 at 3 PM.
Twenty-four of our students will be featured in 5 of the numbers with them performing original choreography by transcenDANCE choreographers. Plus transcenDANCE will be in the opening and closing numbers. Malashock, Banding Together, ARTS, Queer Youth Choir, and a steel drum youth group based in Oceanside will also join us with Jason Mraz.

Until seven years ago there had NEVER been a dog allowed in the San Diego Botanic Garden (SDBG) in Encinitas.

More than 350 people with dogs put their best paws forward to support these two landmark organizations. We hope you will join us for the 8th Annual on Saturday, February 15, 2020!

A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles M. Schulz
Based on the television special by Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson Stage Adaptation by Eric Schaeffer

When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism he sees among everyone during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but this proves to be a frustrating endeavor.

The Palomar College Foundation 5k fun run winds through campus and culminates in a fun festival that includes food, a costume contest, a dash for kids, and a beer garden. Last year, more than 300 people took part and we expect many more this year.

The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep presents the swashbuckling epic adventure The Three Musketeers as its next student production. To fulfill his dream of becoming a Musketeer, young d’Artagnan heads for Paris and into a world of romance, intrigue, and action. There, he joins with Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, vowing to stand “all for one and one for all” in their war against the Cardinal. Max Bush’s dramatization brings to the stage all the excitement and derring-do of this classic story as Alexandre Dumas originally penned it in 1844.Heroism, treachery, close escapes and the pursuit of honor that is fun for all ages.
Director, Benjamin Cole, is thrilled to guide his troop of courageous student actors. “You’ll see some outrageous sword play, and compelling word play between the actors,” Cole reports. “What I love best about this adaptation is its constant energy and twisting complications for all the characters. Everyone has to keep on their toes as they lunge forward from scene to scene.” The show runs a short dash of 70 minutes with no intermission, and promises to excite audiences throughout.
Cole is a member of the Society of American Fight Directors or S.A.F.D. The organization is an internationally recognized non-profit dedicated to promoting safety and fostering excellence in the art of stage combat. The skills taught in our fight choreography are based on historically accurate techniques, but adapted to keep actors safe and looking cool while telling stories of theatrical violence on stage. Cole boasts, “I’m so proud of our student’s commitment to safety while performing all the fight moments. They have been able to do some very impressive routines while maintaining these electrifying characters.”
