CCPA Performing Arts Party at Uptown

As I’ve shared before, there is a special place in my heart for the Canadian College of Performing Arts (CCPA).

The Canadian College of Performing Arts is one of Canada’s top training centres for a career in the arts. Over the past 14 years, the Victoria-based College has made a difference in the lives of gifted young artists who have taken major steps towards their goals of becoming performers, teachers and arts leaders in communities across the country. It has also provided Canadian theatre audiences with the opportunity to enjoy top calibre musical theatre productions.

My son, performer Elliott Loran, attended the college from 2005-2007, and since that time it has been my pleasure to meet an incredible cadre of committed faculty, students and graduates.  I volunteer on a regular basis, and attend a wide range of their productions and events.

The 2012/2013 season marks another milestone for the College. Founded in 1998 by Janis Dunning and Jacques Lemay, the coming year will be the 15th year anniversary, and to celebrate, the year-opening Performing Arts Carnival is going BIG and moving to the Uptown Shopping Centre, Saturday September 22nd from 2pm.

This all-ages event will be situated throughout Uptown with roving performers, clowns, improvisation teams, stage fighting demonstrations as well as a wide range of free classes and performances.

Celebrate arts and culture on Vancouver Island and support upcoming talent.

There will be free popcorn and refreshments, with clown makeup and face-painting stations.

“It will be a colourful, entertaining and educational extravaganza,” says Steven Seltzer, Communications and Marketing Manager.

I will provide more information on the fall performance schedule as it becomes available. The College’s Year Three program, Company C, will announce their three-show season shortly.
