How do O.C.’s finest prep for the party of the year? Hold another one, natch—and that’s precisely how South Coast Repertory set the stage for this year’s gala ball. Savories and sweets, cocktails and vino, and the sounds of steel pan drums were among the treats that awaited underwriters at the waterfront home of Barbara and David Cline. Guests mingled in the abode’s scenic surrounds, and they also enjoyed sunset speeches from gala chairwoman Beth Phelps, SCR Managing Director Paula Tomei and Marc Masterson (you’ll know him as the theater’s artistic director). And as the curtains closed on the evening, everyone agreed that the best was yet to come. Photography by Debora Robinson
