South Coast University Gets Major Gift For Theater And Dance

A major financial gift will help insure that the show will literally go on for decades at a South Coast university’s theater department.

John and Jody Arnhold have given UC Santa Barbara’s Department of Theater and Dance $1.25 million dollars to establish a production fund for the department’s programs. The Arnholds have made major contributions to UCSB in the past, funding residencies by some noted dance performers, and for some dance students to study in New York.

The department produces more than a half dozen plays and dance events annually.

Lance Orozco has been News Director of KCLU since 2001, providing award-winning coverage of some of the biggest news events in the region, including the Thomas and Woolsey brush fires, the deadly Montecito debris flow, the Borderline Bar and Grill attack, and Ronald Reagan's funeral.
