Magical Moment

| October 25, 2011 | Parties

Dramatic, sophisticated, breathtaking—those words only partially describe South Coast Repertory’s 33rd annual Black & White Ball. Held at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel and themed Theatre Magic, the event netted $500,000 for the arts venue. Guests were handed chic feathered Venetian masks as they entered the courtyard, where magicians entertained and appetizers were served. The destination was transformed into a dramatic theatrical world, with tables draped in sequined tablecloths and topped with towers of white calla lilies. Board President Tom Phelps announced the creation of The Emmes/Benson Endowment Fund in honor of the two SCR founders and introduced new Artistic Director Marc Masterson. Break a leg!
