Pell City’s Center for Entertainment and Performing Arts (CEPA) is preparing for multiple events in 2021, while still largely practicing unorthodox policies in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Jeff Thompson, executive director of CEPA, the center is still largely digital for many of its activities.
However, residents can look forward to upcoming events in 2021. For example, the city’s basketball league is currently underway, while Pell City’s school sports teams are still playing as well.
Thompson says they are planning on having the Live at Logan Martin concert this year. The concert will be highlighted by performances from the Black Jacket Symphony.
Spring will see the return of theatrical performances at CEPA. Currently, there are four plays beginning in March.
While these are events residents can physically attend, Thompson says that the pandemic has forced them to adjust to rely on their digital content as a way to continue reaching an audience.
“Last year threw us all for a loop. Our goal in 2021 is to provide more opportunities to come to you,” Thompson said. “In no way are we going to let this slow us down.”
