Playhouse hosts women's group event

More than 60 members of the Laguna Playhouse's Playhouse Women group attended an event at the Laguna Nursery Sept. 13, where they encouraged others to join the group, enjoyed wine and art and had a chance to meet author Sonia Marsh of "Freeways to Flip-Flops."

Playhouse Women is co-chaired by Deborah Mayhew and Suzanne Mellor. The group raises money for special projects for the Playhouse and hosts informative presentations and social events, according to a press release.

"Our members come from all walks of life and have a variety of interests — with our common denominator being a passion for the Laguna Playhouse," Mayhew said at the event. "At the ripe old age of 91, the non-profit Playhouse is nationally-recognized for the quality of its productions and its award-winning youth theatre."

"Our current project is to raise money for the restrooms at the Playhouse," Mellor said in a statement. "We've raised over $50,000 so far, with the goal being to raise $100,000 total."

The group will next host an author presentation and book signing Nov. 2 with Sharrie Williams, who wrote "The Maybelline Story."

Those interested in joining Playhouse Women, with annual dues of $125, should contact Leslie Anne Mogul at or (949) 497-2787ext. 217.
