1935 PAGEANT OF THE MASTERS
Roy Ropp, having assumed direction of the “living pictures,” added a larger stage, painted backdrops, music and narration. He called his new and very popular program the Pageant of the Masters.
1935 FESTIVAL OF ARTS
The Festival was held adjacent to the Art Gallery (now the Laguna Art Museum) on Cliff Drive.
A stage and Festival façade resembling pirate ships were built in anticipation of the main entertainment event, a “sea pageant.” Jack Benny performed “Love in Bloom” on his violin on the deck of the pirate ship.
