Debbie Reynolds Coming To APACF

By Michael Buss, 2014-09-27

Debbie Reynolds, darling of stage, screen and television in the 1950s and 60s, and her never-to-be-forgotten role opposite Gene Kelly in Singin’ in the Rain, and later in her title role in The Unsinkable molly Brown, will be the celebrity guest at this year’s Great Gatsby Gala with the Anaheim Performing Arts Center Foundation.

Regular readers will know that the mission of APACF is to build a state of the arts performing arts center right here in California’s 10th largest city. They sensed the frustration when the Heritage Forum, widely tipped to be the location of the new facility, was bought by The Rock Church.

Now, after a prolonged silence about the plans, members of the City Council revealed at a recent Candidate’s Forum that the likely new venue will be the building of the City National Grove of Anaheim, right next to the Anaheim Angels Stadium.

However nothing is sure and until it’s all signed and sealed. The Grove’s lease has about a year to run when it is projected that some sort of deal could be hatched, maybe in conjunction with the current leaseholders Nederlander, to strip out and reconstruct the building to meet the requirements of the Foundation. Probably the main challenge will be to keep the City Council and staff focused on the main objective, ensuring that they thoroughly embrace the mission.

The annual galas in Anaheim Hills, fundraisers towards the main capital fund, have invariably been spectacular. The change of date from August to the fall is smart because the summer heat had become almost too much. The location is the same – the lovely home of Dr. Howie and Mrs. Linda Knohl of Fox Pointe Manor. With Fritz Coleman, weatherman from NBC4 as the host and many fine entertainers, vendors, and surprises this promises to be a fine event.  Please click the image below to get the full details.
