"Spotlight on Performance" is the theme of Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard's 2012 State of the City event scheduled Thursday, January 26, at A Noise Within, 3352 E. Foothill Blvd.
Doors to the theater will open at 6:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 7 p.m. with Vice Mayor Margaret McAustin serving as master of ceremonies.
The Pasadena Police Department Honor Guard will present the colors, a scene from Michael Frayn's classic British farce "Noises Off" will be performed and accomplishments of the past year in Pasadena will be presented in a video narrated by a community leader.
During his remarks to the community, Bogaard will provide updates and future plans regarding the ongoing weak economy, redevelopment, environment, arts and culture, public safety, transportation and more.
The event is free and open to the public. Spanish interpretation will be provided. The program will be videotaped for future broadcast on KPAS and via streaming video on the Internet. A replay schedule will be announced.
