MARNI Sets the Stage for “Setting The Stage!”

MARNI was the setting for the big announcement—SCR’s 2012 Gala Ball has a theme and a title:  “Setting the Stage!”

South Coast Plaza’s must-stop boutique hosted an elegant breakfast on Wednesday morning, February 8, for members of the Gala Committee, who discussed business first and shopped later, with 20% of proceeds donated by MARNI to SCR.

The meeting was led by Gala Chair Beth Phelps, who announced her goal—to make the first and largest contribution to SCR’s Annual Fund—and to have fun!  “When I accepted your invitation to chair this wonderful season-opening event, I was told it was all about having fun, and so that’s my plan.”  (Note:  Among those fun-loving advisers were former Gala Chairs Olivia Johnson and Sophie Cripe.)

According to committee members, “Setting the Stage!” is the perfect title for SCR because theatre is “who we are and what we do.”  The event will celebrate artists and artistry with all things theatrical—props, costumes, sets, lights, sound—starting behind the scenes and leading to the moment the curtain rises and actors take the stage.

“Setting the Stage” will be held at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa on Saturday, September 8, 2012.  For more information or to find out how to join the fun, call Lauren Hovey at (714) 708-5504.
