Rebounding from a fiscal close call, organizers of the San Juan Capistrano Regional Library's popular performing-arts series have raised enough money both to mount a complete season next year and to avoid curtailing its current season. Backers of the San Juan Capistrano Multicultural Performance and Visual Arts Series of concerts, plays and readings launched a fund drive after learning in July that the County of Orange had eliminated its support for the program because of its own budget woes.

The South Orange County Community Theatre plans to perform "La Christianita Pageant" next year at Mission San Juan Capistrano. The pageant, last performed in 1988 in San Clemente, is expected to begin next July with a two-week run at its new venue here. The production is a story of California settlement by Spanish missionaries. Bertha Henry Taylor, a member of a committee overseeing the revival of the pageant, said that organizers are optimistic that the shows will be the first of many.

It may be a small, long-deserted structure on a side street, but it's home. And for the members of the nomadic South Orange County Community Theatre, the prospect of any permanent facility is reason to celebrate. Tonight, the San Juan Capistrano City Council is expected to approve a deal that would give the troupe use of a former Pacific Bell building downtown for just $1 a year. The group has bounced around among 30 different South County facilities since it was founded three years ago.

His nickname is "Mocho," which friends say means "something missing" in a local Indian dialect--a reference to the three fingers he lost in World War I. But few lives have been as full and complete as that of 96-year-old Paul Arbiso, known across the country as the man who rings the bells of Mission San Juan Capistrano on Swallows Day. On Tuesday, the patriarch of this old mission city was honored during ceremonies marking the unveiling of a mural portraying Arbiso in the historic train depot.
