You are cordially invited to this year’s Panto Benefit and Opening Night Celebration, devoted to benefiting two student matinee performances. On Thursday, December 11, 2014 The Playhouse Courtyard will be filled with Winter Wonderland cheer for the much anticipated opening of Sleeping Beauty and Her Winter Knight. Benefit Co-Chair Darrell Brooke greeted the Committee with these words, “This is our opportunity to share the gift of live theatre with the youth of our community.” The event includes a cocktail party at redwhite+bluezz, a special children’s reception in the Makineni Library with UrbanSitters, and photographs with Santa in the Georgia T. McClay Friendship Center. Co-Chair Julietta Perez encouraged everyone to attend and support a fun evening for a good cause, reflecting that “this British tradition – the Panto – is now our tradition, one that my kids look forward to each December. It’s magical to see the entire audience clapping and singing…it truly speaks to kids of ALL ages.”

If you wish to attend, support PUSD and LAUSD students, and be part of the magic, please contact Julia Fitzgibbons in Special Events at 626 204-7383 or
