Tickets on sale for “Dancing With Our Stars”

A Gala Fundraiser on April 2 at the Center

An all-star lineup of prominent community and business leaders will slip on their dancing shoes and com­pete as part of the California Center for the Arts, Escondido’s “Dancing With Our Stars” Gala Fundraiser on Saturday April 2. Gala proceeds will benefit the Center’s education and community outreach programs, which serve over 75,000 people each year.

Community stars will include for­mer Escondido Mayor Lori Holt- Pfeiler and current Escondido Dep­uty Mayor Mike Morasco. Stars are paired with local and regional dance studio instructors from PGK Dance Project, Tierra Caliente Academy and Performing Arts Workshop, Encini­tas. Dance couples will compete in the Center’s 1,500-seat concert hall, emulating the format of the popular reality show, Dancing with the Stars.

Comedian Dallas McLaughlin, who has performed with Louis CK and Norm McDonald, among others, will serve as the gala’s emcee. An award-winning playwright and direc­tor, Dallas currently hosts KPBS’s Film Indiego.
