The Story of an Invitation

Once a year, on a June morning at South Coast Repertory, members of the SCR Gala Ball Committee get together for an important task—assembling invitations and hand addressing each one for mailing.

This season’s Gala, “Setting the Stage,” chaired by Beth Phelps, will take place on September 8 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa.  “Setting the Stage” will take guests on a theatrical journey from backstage to footlights—a journey rendered artistically in the invitation.
It’s the story of a show, from concept to completion.  Follow along, beginning with a set designer’s sketch (Proof), to a computer drawing (Putting It Together), to pop-ups of lights…costumes … sound… to fully realized productions (A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Putting It Together)—inviting guests to join us as we begin “Setting the Stage” for next year’s productions.

For information about “Setting the Stage” (and to receive your own special invitation), please call Director of Development, Susan Reeder at (714) 708-5518.

The Gala Patron Party will take place at the home of SCR supporters Barbara and David Cline on August 16 at 6:30pm.  This exclusive party for Gala patrons previews  “Setting the Stage” and is one of the highlights of the Orange County summer social season.
