PACA volunteer coordination meeting is tonight by Ryan Smith

The stated vision of the Performing Artists Collective Alliance is "to create a community performing arts center and theater that promotes the widest variety of artistic endeavors" in Erie.

And PACA's been doing an admirable job of that, with nearly a dozen official 'PACA Presents' events already on its 2015 schedule, along with all sorts of regional performers and show-makers making good use of the collective's State Street artists' space.

PACA does all that good work as a non-profit organization, meaning it needs support, in the forms of both money and volunteers, in order to keep it up. So, now, for the first time, PACA is mounting a big advertising campaign -- aggressive, its organizers call it, and strategic, too -- and it's looking for volunteers to help get the word out (and cashflow in).

Interested in helping out in some way? Or not sure, but think you might be? Well, tonight at 6 p.m., there's a meeting at PACA, 1505 State Street, for anyone thinking they may be interested in getting involved. PACA's people say the meeting will be pretty brief, covering the main points of the new campaign, discussing marketing strategies and providing volunteers with some nifty pointers and tools for helping the cause.

They'll also go over some of the cool prizes and other stuff top-performing volunteers could come away with once the campaign's all said and done.

Wanna help out, but can't make tonight's meeting? That's cool -- "just call me at 450-1176, or email info@paca1505.com, and we can get you the information you need to support one the most innovative and exciting theatrical spaces in Erie," says PACA Business Manager Margo Wolfe.

So go to the meeting, and bring some friends. Or drop PACA a line, and tell your buddies to do the same. Either way, it'll be time and energy well-spent.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!
