The student production club at Carlsbad High School are pleased to announce their second student run production Oneirataxia.

Following their “Love is Blind: A Spoken-Word Play,” “Oneirataxia” functions as the first official collaborative work of “Student Production Club,” a club dedicated to empowering students to write, direct, and act in their own theatrical and cinematic productions annually. The “Oneirataxia” production and Student Production Club work hand-in-hand to provide a platform for creative student expression. . . In a creativity-deprived world, any ounce of opposition is crushed immediately by “remediating” forces. When Beta is sent to the Eldritch Institute for the Misguided, she and her group of friends must escape the institute or else face death. In this hard-hitting piece highlighting the misuses of modern-day conformity, the gang discovers that changing the world will require some sacrifices.

The show runs October 10-12, 2019. For more information and to buy tickets click here.

Yes, We Should Save The Stack

by The Editors on September 9, 2019

Retired Navy vet Jim Strickland told The San Diego Union Tribune that he likes the Carlsbad Stack and he thinks we should keep it. We totally agree (not only because its part of our logo).

“I like it, and I think it’s crazy to get rid of it,” said Jim Strickland, a retired Navy veteran and 19-year Carlsbad resident who has long admired the distinctive column. 

We also agree with Susan Gutierrez.

“It’s an iconic, visible symbol of Carlsbad,” said Gutierrez, president of the Carlsbad Historical Society. . . “As a resident, when I see the power plant stack from anywhere on the coast, I know I am in Carlsbad, and home,” she said.

Exactly. Apparently, the issue will be discussed by the Historic Preservation Commission tonight. For all the details, please click the link.

Calavera Trail Coalition Works Toward Access

by The Editors on April 24, 2019

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has recently declared war on mountain bikers at Calavera a.k.a the Carlsbad Highlands Ecological Reserve, but a group of Carlsbad locals are hoping to get the land approved for multi-use recreation so decades of trail access can continue in a legal, open, and patrolled way. They’re calling themselves the Calavera Trail Coalition and they’ve built a website to help speed the flow of communication in the community. Here’s their mission statement:

The mission of the Calavera Trails Coalition is to Preserve Calavera for multi use for generations to come. We encourage sustainable management, ecosystem management, multi use recreation and preservation of open space for all to enjoy. We recognize the needs of people including those who have limited abilities or are unable to walk on the land. We support hikers, bikers, adaptive athletes, trail runners, families and wildlife. Sustainable management with enjoyment for all will Preserve Calavera.

For more info on the Calavera and how you can help, please visit the Calavera Trail Coalition website by clicking the link.

CEF’s 5th Annual Pedal for a Purpose

by The Editors on March 15, 2019

Join the Carlsbad Education Foundation at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa Plaza on Saturday, March 23, 2019 as they spin stationary bikes to raise money for the continually underfunded Carlsbad Unified School District in their 5th Annual Pedal for a Purpose presented by Gelson’s Markets.

This stationary bike-a-thon raises funds for music, science, and innovational education programs for the 11,000 students in the Carlsbad Unified School District. There will be music by DJ Extreme, high-energy spin instructors, activities for children, and a health and wellness expo. Riders receive VIP treatment in the form of massages, swag, drinks and nutritional snacks, contests, prizes and more!

You’d think the Carlsbad Unified School District could afford to teach science, music, and innovational education programs on its own, but that’s not how our district works. And because of this, the students of Carlsbad need your help. For all the official details, and exactly how you can help please follow the jump.

Cellist Ashley Bathgate At St. Michael’s Chapel

by The Editors on February 7, 2019

The Carlsbad Music Festival Presents Sonic Chapel with cellist Ashley Bathgate Friday, February 15, 2019.

The desire to create a dynamic energy exchange with her audience and build upon the ensuing chemistry is a pillar of Bathgates’s philosophy as a performer. Her affinity to dynamism drives Bathgate to venture into previously uncharted areas of ground-breaking sounds and techniques, breaking the mold of a cello’s traditionally perceived voice. Collaborators and fans alike describe her vitality as nothing short of remarkable and magical for all who are involved. Bathgate is a member of the award-winning, internationally acclaimed sextet Bang on a Can All-Stars, the chamber music group HOWL, and is also a founding member of TwoSense, a duo with pianist Lisa Moore, and Bonjour, a low-strung, percussive quintet.
