The City of San Leandro has leased the California Conservatory Theater located at the San Leandro Civic Center to Curtain Call Performing Arts (CCPA). The lease is for five years.“The arts are vital to a city’s quality of life and economic progress. We hope that by providing a long-term lease at almost no cost, CCPA will prosper and grow into one of the leading theater companies in the East Bay,” said Leandro Mayor Stephen Cassidy.
in Call Performing Arts (www.curtaincallperformingarts.org) is led by its founding artistic director and president Andrea Gorham. The theater company was founded in June 2008 to bring Broadway-style theater to the San Francisco Bay Area and has produced award-winning shows at this San Leandro facility ever since.
The group’s vision is to ensure that performance-based arts are assessable to everyone who desires to participate or attend performances by keeping ticket prices low and class/workshop tuition affordable for the community.
“We are proud to enter into a five-year partnership with the City of San Leandro. Curtain Call is all about bringing our community together through the arts and this new partnership brings it home,” said Gorham.
