Free performances, festivities mark MVCPA's 25th

Aug. 6 celebration set for anniversary of Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts

On Aug. 6, the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a festival downtown. There will be free performances on three stages featuring a wide range of entertainment, including comedy, dance, jazz, short films and theatrical performances.

Performers include TheatreWorks, several local dance schools, Silicon Valley Shakespeare, Peninsula Youth Theatre and Arte Flamenco.

In addition to the performances, an interactive element will have performers teaching attendees how to dance or do improv. There will also be a play area, food trucks, free popcorn and a selfie station with former set pieces from shows. Attendees can pick up commemorative swag like anniversary t-shirts, sunglasses and color-changing mugs.

Along with the festival, City Hall is hosting an exhibit outlining the timeline of the Civic Center from the original architectural concepts to its early years. Memorabilia from City Hall and the Center for the Performing Arts will also be on display. The exhibit opened on July 25 and will run through Aug. 10, open for viewing whenever the City Hall is open.
