La Mesa – The arts are alive and well in the city of La Mesa.  This week will mark the 10th anniversary for La Mesa’s own C. Hook Theater.  Short for Captain Hook Theater, C. Hook began as the sister organization to Peter Pan Junior Theater, which just celebrated its 46th year this past March by producing the musical “ANNIE”.   C. Hook Theater is the creation of Dr. Mark Arapostathis, Mayor of the city of La Mesa as well as director of Peter Pan Jr. Theater.  Dr. A, as he is known, was also part of the team that created the La Mesa Arts Academy, where he is currently the director of Theatre Arts. 

C. Hook Theater, will produce the show “Damn Yankees”, this week at the Kroc Theater at 6845 University Ave.  C. Hook Theater is an amateur company in name only.  From its professional theatrical scenery and costumes to its professional live orchestra, C. Hook Theater is as close as La Mesa will come to Broadway.  C. Hook Theater is comprised of 9th – 12th grade students throughout San Diego County.  The show dates are June 22 – June 25.  Curtain is 7pm with a matinee on Saturday, June 25 at 1pm.  Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door or online at
