The Center for Education in Performing Arts (CEPA) in Pell City is excited to announce a partnership with Hargray Communications that will bring all-new arts and cultural experiences and opportunities to the citizens of Pell City and St. Clair County in 2020.
As of this month, Hargray’s mission to invest in and support the Pell City community now includes assisting CEPA with its goal to bring top-quality performers to the stage. First up – The Black Jacket Symphony, which will perform Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” on Feb. 13 and 14 at 7 p.m.
“We could not have brought The Black Jacket Symphony to Pell City without the help of Hargray, plain and simple,” said CEPA Executive Director Jeff Thompson. “We told the company it was a milestone for us to deliver the show to the many in town who had been asking for it, and Hargray didn’t hesitate to step up.”
In addition to supporting performances like The Black Jacket Symphony, Hargray supports CEPA’s Local Sounds and Spotlight Drama Education programs. Local Sounds will feature it’s the first performance of the year on Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. when The Fellas R&B Band feat. CJ O’Neal returns to CEPA.
Spotlight, a county-wide drama education and outreach program operated by CEPA, plans to produce 11 plays and musicals in 2020, including the Spotlight Core Club’s “12 Angry Jurors” (12 Angry Men), which will arrive April 3-5.
“We want the people of Pell City to know that we’re not just a partner with CEPA, we’re your neighbor,” Hargray General Manager Tim Kelley said. “We’re here to promote and support the people in this amazing community, and this partnership is only the first step toward that goal.”
Hargray provides the fastest Internet, Wall-to-Wall WiFi, Digital TV, and Home Phone services with superior, personalized customer care that the massive, nationwide providers do not offer.
