Spotlight Moody to bring ‘Peter Pan’ to CEPA Feb. 23-24

For the 30 students in Moody High School’s Spotlight Drama Club, this month marks a milestone. It’s only been one year since the Club was formed, and its members are already producing their first full production.

On Feb. 23 and 24 at 7 p.m., Spotlight Moody will present “Peter Pan” at the Center for Education and Performing Arts (CEPA) in Pell City. The play is open to the public, with ticket prices at $5 for students and $7 for adults available at the door.

This classic tale of the adventures Peter and Wendy experience while going head-to-head with the evil Captain Hook and a ticking crocodile is loved by all. But Club members, led by sponsor Jonathan Hood,  have added their own twist to the classic tale that will thrill St. Clair audiences. Continue reading

Tonight: Don’t miss ‘How to Eat Like A Child’ at CEPA

Marketing Drama Camp Performance 2016 2

How to Eat Like a Child – And Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown Up

2016 CEPA Sumer Drama Camp Finale

Friday, June 24 • 6 p.m.

Doors at 5:30 p.m. • Entry $5


Coming this Friday to the Pell City Center for Education and the Performing Arts (CEPA) stage is a play featuring some of the county’s finest kid actors doing what they do best – acting like kids.

“How to Eat Like a Child – And Other Lessons in Not Being a Grown Up” is a play that will see the members of this year’s CEPA Summer Drama Camp teaching lessons to each other – and the audience – about understanding the nuances of kid behavior.

So, for example if you ever wondered what it’s like to be a kid at bedtime (“I hate going to bed,” they say) or what kids do at school all day (“I put my head down and take a nap,” they add), these actors are ready to show you.

“It’s lessons like “How to Ride in a Car” that really crack us up,” said Ginger McCurry, Pell City High School’s drama teacher and instructor for CEPA’s Summer Camp. “When one child, pretending to be a parent, tells another to ‘draw an imaginary line’ and don’t cross it, adults get to see what they look like from their kids’ perspectives.”

The full-length musical comedy is abased on a book written by Delia Ephron, and in the the 1980s it was adapted into a TV movie starring Dick Van Dyke.

“How to Eat like a Child” will feature 18 local actors performing on the CEPA stage on Friday, June 24 at 6 p.m. The theater opens at 5:30 p.m., and the cost is $5 at the door.
