This summer, we've been working on various maintenance projects throughout the theater!

One of the projects was replacing sections of our stage flooring. Pictured below is one of our team members rolling some fresh coats of paint over the new floor panels.

Many thanks to former Playhouse team members Jon for sharing this picture with us and Steve for providing some information on this snapshot in time!

Pictured below is animator and Disney Legend Ward Kimball. Taken in 1985 during Civic Light Opera’s production of ‘Peter Pan,’ Ward was the MC for a fundraising event at the Playhouse, raising money for the Palms Depot restoration at Heritage Square Museum. Our manager at the time, Bill Shaw, kiddingly said to Ward that he should fly in for his event entrance to which he responded, “Let’s do it!”

A couple of fun facts on Ward Kimball…..

🖌 He worked at Walt Disney Studios from 1934-1972 creating memorable characters including Jiminy Cricket.

🚂 Disneyland Railroad’s Engine No. 5 is named 'Ward Kimball' in his memory.

Disney animator Ward Kimball who was one of Walt's "nine old men," often visited the Playhouse for silent movies about trains, accompanied by the Wurlitzer. Here's a photo of Ward, which he dedicated to the manager of the Mission Playhouse (San Gabriel Civic Auditorium at the time,) having fun on the set for Peter Pan in 1985:
