Patti La Mar, a long time volunteer at the Pasadena Playhouse gave a presentation that covered the colorful history of this Pasadena landmark theater and also talked about the current season. There was much more to the story than you would guess and Patti shared some of the secrets and little-known stories of this historic Pasadena treasure.


A wonderful meal prepared by Woman’s City Club Chef was enjoyed by all in attendance at the luncheon, with table decor reflecting a theatrical theme created by our own WCL Member, Darlene Besocke.
