Mary A. Castillo One year ago, Erin Fusco, a 16-year-old visual arts student at Laguna Beach High School was getting ready for school when her friend called and said the words many others over the world heard that morning, "Turn on the news."

Laguna Beach's Gallimaufry Performing Arts celebrates all facets of the theater (along with music, dance and visual arts) and, as the company is demonstrating this weekend, youth must be served as well. An active part of the community theater group's program is the Generation GAP, a troupe of teenage actors, directors designers and backstage workers which serves as a talented adjunct to the parent organization. At the moment, the Generation GAP is staging a dramatic musical which might bring to mind Disney's animated hit "The Little Mermaid," particularly since the latter's recent release on special edition on DVD. It's a story of someone from the lower class who falls in love with a member of the wealthy elite.

Another opening, another show, another success. Festival of Arts officials announced at the annual membership meeting in the Festival Forum Theatre that the 2012 season was both a financial and artistic triumph. Moreover, the festival's permanent collection was enhanced with a donation from Realtor Michael Gosselin of a painting by Roy Ropp, the father of the Pageant of the Masters. "This was our most successful year ever," said Anita Mangels, festival treasurer. Mangels attributed the success to the dedication of the staff and 500 volunteers, without whom the show could not be financially viable, nor make possible the thousands of dollars in scholarships and grants awarded every year.

With Orange County locals in the Olympics, contentious City Council elections and those Mitt and Barack guys who kept grabbing headlines, it was a busy year for news - and the arts proved to be no exception. We could try to order this into a conventional "top 10 stories" or some such thing, but since the arts are always playful and surprising, and sometimes impossible to classify, we'll approach our year-end roundup the same way. Here were some of the highlights on Laguna Beach's cultural scene in 2012: Recipe for Success: The 2012 season of Festival of Arts, a longstanding Laguna Beach tradition, was a fiscal and creative success story.

When Sir Elton John glanced at Bernie Taupin's computer screen a few weeks ago, he noticed a vivid red and white painting with light shades of blue popping out from the background. "'Is that one of yours?' he asked me," Taupin recounted. "When I replied, 'Yes,' he said, 'I've got to have that.'" The painting in question is "Winter Rain," a 36-by-36 creation that had, until recently, been part of Taupin's retrospective "Beyond Words. " Coming to Coast Gallery in Laguna Beach from Feb. 7 to 10, this exhibition reflects Taupin's 20-year commitment to the visual arts.
