  • Sleeping Beauty and Holiday Traditions

    If you’ve read any of my posts, you’d know that I love theater and taking my family to as many shows as possible. It doesn’t matter the venue; I’m always up for a show. Last month one of my friends was talking about having a mom’s night out with our kids to see Sleeping Beauty at the Laguna Playhouse in Laguna Beach instead of a regular holiday dinner gift exchange. I loved the idea of making holiday memories that didn’t consist of food and gifts, instead of experiences.

  • Sleeping Beauty and Her Winter Knight - WOW!

    Lythgoe Family Panto is back in the OC as the Laguna Playhouse treats kids of all ages to Sleeping Beauty And Her Winter Knight, Orange County’s most song, dance, and laugh-packed December treat.

  • Family-friendly 'Sleeping Beauty' in Laguna is broadly silly, musically solid

    The Lythgoe family is working to establish a holiday tradition in Orange County theater in the form of the panto. If Laguna Playhouse continues as a presenting house each December, that very well may come to pass.

  • Sleeping Beauty and Her Winter Knight @ Laguna Playhouse - Review
