Now that you're finished celebrating this Easter, it's time to take a look at "Last Easter." That's the title of the latest production at the Laguna Playhouse, opening Saturday and running through May 21. The Laguna version will be only the second production of Bryony Lavery's rather bizarre comedy, which premiered in New York in October, 2005. Playhouse executive director Richard Stein is staging the show. "Last Easter" revolves around four showbiz friends who take off on a whirlwind journey from their homes in London to Lourdes, France (where one of them is thoroughly dunked in holy water)

It's not an easy task to blend layers of comedy into a play dealing with impending death ? Bernard Slade probably best accomplished it in "Tribute" ? but Bryony Lavery certainly endeavors to pull it off with "Last Easter," now in its West Coast premiere at the Laguna Playhouse. Lavery's four principal characters are close friends, all scratching for a living in one form or another in the theater, and one of them has contracted a particularly insidious form of cancer. Her demise is predestined, but the other three take it upon themselves to intercede.

I remember Easter as an image of fellow, well-scrubbed boys squirming in Sunday school, anticipating the hunt for brightly colored, hard-boiled eggs in the church parking lot. Gardening was the last thing on my mind; after all, it’s still the ’50s, and I haven’t progressed beyond raking bougainvillea leaves. April stirs a gardener’s blood with a host of gardening opportunities in Laguna. The largest selection of flowers, vegetables, shrubs and trees are available this month.

Easter didn't end on Sunday for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Laguna Beach. The clubs' main branch held special Easter egg hunts for its kids on Monday, the first day of many kids' spring break. The first hunt was for K-2 kids; the next was for grades 3-6. Before the first hunt began in the play yard, students peeked out doors and through windows. Older kids said that they wanted to play, too. Assistant Program Director Alex Tisdail instructed the kids not to go past any orange cones or through gates or doors.

Andrew Edwards Planning commissioners said the body did not deny permission to post a Christian banner on the Festival of Arts ground for religious reasons. Instead, commissioners said the rejection had more to do with bureaucracy. The banner in question is a 19-foot by 14-foot banner by Laguna artist Jeff LeFever. The artwork is meant to represent the book of Psalms, and features a large cross over the text of Psalms written in Hebrew.

CHERRIL DOTY "...some days I may be cranky and some days really cranky!" Peter Jennings OK. That's it! I'm offering a reward for the capture of that dratted Easter bunny. When he came in with the colored eggs this year, he seems to have made off with my joy. I've been cranky ever since that fateful day. Wasn't all the color enough? The smiles on the faces of youngsters didn't do it for him? Or was there just so much joy to be spread with our ever-increasing population that he needed to steal mine?

During Holy Week in the Episcopal Church and other liturgical churches, the church becomes theater. The set is built where the story of Jesus? last days on Earth is not just read but reenacted. We take our lead from our Jewish heritage where the stories of our faith, like Passover, are not seen as ancient history but rather God?s story continuing to be lived as we live out our relationship with God. As the rabbis will tell, ?When the Israelites went through the Red Sea on their way to freedom from slavery in Egypt, our feet get wet!

This week marks a time of reflection and worship for many Lagunans, with the celebration of both Passover and Easter. Yesterday's Maundy Thursday celebration, which commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ, marks the beginning of the Easter Triduum (three-day period) that honors Christ's death and resurrection, the central events of Christianity. It culminates in Easter Sunday. There is debate over whether the Last Supper was a Passover Seder; Passover roughly coincides with the time Easter is celebrated.
