Brea’s Youth Theatre Presents: The Best of Stagelight
Brea’s Youth Theatre presented its first-ever exclusively live-streamed performance on February 13. The Best of Stagelight was comprised of 90 minutes’ worth of songs and scenes from some of the most beloved youth theatre productions to ever appear on the Curtis Theatre stage. All rehearsals and shows were conducted in accordance with the latest COVID-19 restrictions. Safety measures included holding events outdoors, mask-wearing, social-distancing, and rehearsing in small groups. Curtis Theatre staff handled all lighting, audio, and streaming duties, and kept the usual Brea Youth Theatre production value. Online audiences gave rave reviews of both the content and the experience. Participants were ecstatic to finally showcase their weeks of hard work. Overall, the production was very different than anything attempted before, but it was still expertly executed and provided a much-needed performance opportunity for everyone involved.
Imperial Highway and Berry Street Intersection Improvements
The Imperial Highway and Berry Street Intersection Improvements, CIP Project 7278, has begun. This project will construct a new right-turn lane while traveling west on Imperial Highway onto Berry Street. The work consists of pavement rehabilitation, including cold milling, which is a process of removing at least part of the road surface to level and smooth the surface. The project also includes the placement of new asphalt concrete, sidewalk improvements, curb and gutter improvements, curb ramp improvements, and the relocation of traffic signal poles.
Hardy and Harper, Inc. was awarded the contract for this project. Construction is anticipated to be completed by May. The project is being completed in two main phases. Phase one includes some underground work, and phase two includes the construction of the right-turn lane, sidewalk, ADA ramps, and signal work. In collaborating with the City’s Communications & Marketing Division, notices were sent out to the residents and nearby business properties as well as posted on the City’s website. Residents and the general public will continue to be notified throughout the project to keep them updated on progress.

Brea Community Center Fitness LED Lighting Upgrade
The Public Works Department’s Building Maintenance staff recently installed LED string lighting on the north side of the Brea Community Center gymnasium. This custom-lighting system, which includes a timer and dimmer capabilities, enhances the Brea Community Center’s ability to provide outdoor fitness classes and will also give guests another area to hold events in the future. Building Maintenance staff worked closely with the Community Services Department to select the lighting for this project.
