The stunning new Orange County Performing Arts Center dramatically symbolizes Orange County's coming of age, and excitement has been building throughout the county as its inauguration approaches. That includes us at the Los Angeles Times Orange County Edition. Like many others, we wanted to find our own distinctive way to mark the opening of the center. We chose to produce a magazine that would entertain as well as inform, educate as well as celebrate.
It was a special challenge, and the result is "Center Stage." To our writers and editors who made it a success, I extend a heartfelt thanks. We hope you enjoy our magazine as much as we enjoyed producing it.
