Celebrations. Beatles, birthdays, Woodstock, summer’s end — August has been quite the month. The recent Beatles Day at the Sawdust Art Festival was a tremendous day, filled with music, laughter, and lots of people. One of those people is our fictitious artist from earlier in the summer. The last time we saw him was just before Fourth of July. He has been very busy all summer and we have not heard from him since. Evidently, hearing so much of the music in one day, in one place, has inspired our intrepid artist to show his face — or pen — once again.

From musicals to drama to standup comedy, the upcoming season at the Laguna Playhouse was chosen to satisfy the taste of Laguna's theatergoers. The 2013-14 season was announced Wednesday evening at a reception at the Hotel Laguna for enthusiastic Playhouse patrons, who were treated to a surprise appearance by Davis Gaines, who will star with Vicki Lewis in the season opener, "I Do! I Do!" Gaines and his accompanist, Bob Hawkins, were introduced by Playhouse Artistic Director Ann E. Wareham, who cohosted the reception with Executive Director Karen Wood.

Airline revenues are down this year, but don’t blame the Michaels family. Jake Michaels will be a junior at Laguna Beach High, Lauren a sophomore and Brooke an eighth-grader at Thurston Middle School. The trio of siblings traveled like many families this summer, but it’s safe to say they played more tennis on those trips than just about anyone. And when the Michaels Magical Mystery Tour concluded last week at the Hawaii State Championship, all three had the opportunity to play in national junior tournaments and earn points toward a ranking.
