CRESTVIEW — North county arts community members are preparing for a busy year of cultural activities.

Among the Friends of the Arts’ activities are:

•The formation of View from the Stage, the non-profit Crestview community theater troupe’s official name. The group is rehearsing for its April 12-14 production of the British farce "See How They Run."

•Co-sponsoring the Laurel Hill Spring Arts Festival on April 13.

•Finding ways that the Friends can support Northwood Elementary School's creation of a regional fine arts academy.

•Supporting increased community involvement for Crestview's Sister City program, particularly through a spring student-internship exchange with the chamber of commerce and a June trip to Noirmoutier.

•Considering bringing out-of-town performers, including regional artists such as the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, to Crestview.
