Fifty years after Nellie Gail Moulton donated $400,000 to build the 420-seat Moulton Theatre that houses the Laguna Playhouse, her great-grandson and other Moulton descendants carry on that legacy with a $1 million gift. Jared Mathis was honored at a recent Playhouse gala where the gift towards renovations was announced.

More than 400 Playhouse patrons attended the sold-out affair where vocalist Davis Gaines entertained.

The event organizers include Playhouse producer Lisa Hale, local resident Annee Della Donnaand board member Jamie Walters El Erian.

“Each of us began our love for Laguna Playhouse through the youth theatre conservatory and its programs,” noted the co-chairs.
