Canyon Crest Academy Foundation receives grant for theater marquee

Stop by Canyon Crest Academy’s Proscenium Theatre to see what’s playing! The Canyon Crest Academy Foundation applied for a Neighborhood Reinvestment Program grant with the County of San Diego. The grant was approved and funded through San County Supervisor, Dave Roberts, and an in-kind donation from Chad Spaman of Coastal Signage. The new marquee will help CCA to better communicate events happening at and around the community. “Installing a marquee on the Proscenium building will not only identify it for what it is, a theater, but will present a visual awareness to our surrounding community about the multitude of events performed at CCA throughout the school year” notes Hilary Patton, Envision Project Manager, CCA Envision Program who sheparded the process to completion.

After several bids and designs, Coastal Signage was chosen to complete the project. Coastal Signage not only committed to doing the project for the grant total, but also offered student enrichment opportunities as well. Owner Chad Spaman and his team have an appreciation of the arts that is unparalleled and honor CCA for their commitment to the arts and elevating student education. Mr. Spaman and his company were very generous with discounts and flexibility in completing the project on time and under budget.

With cooperation from the district, the project was completed in time for the CCA gala on May 14th where it will be formally dedicated as part of the evening’s festivities. For tickets and further information, please go to
