Visit: Pageant of the Masters, Laguna Beach, CaliforniaThe 2018 theme, Under the Sun, explores the early years of the 20th century when a new generation of impressionists and plein air painters set up their easels outdoors and reveled in the natural beauty to be found as far as the eye could see. During the show you will explore theatrical magic, live music and light-hearted storytelling that honors Laguna’s own and other artistic pioneers from around the world. The Pageant acknowledges two local milestones: the 85th anniversary of “living pictures” at the Festival of Arts and the 100th anniversary of Laguna Art Museum. You won’t want to miss this exciting salute to a world of “art that lives and breathes” beneath the stars in the Pageant’s beautiful amphitheater. The doors open at 7:30 pm, curtain time is 8:30, intermission is 9:30. The show ends at 10:30 pm.
