We had an incredible day experiencing the Arts in Orange County. This area is filled with so many talented people and opportunities, and we got an inside look at how these performances and pieces come together! First, we toured Segerstrom Center for the Arts, and it was amazing to get a behind-the-scenes tour of this stunning theatre.
Do you know why the color of the theatre is red? This color was chosen because the color red does not reflect light back at the performers. Our favorite part was when we stood on the stage and looked out over the gorgeous theatre from a different perspective.
Next, we toured the South Coast Repertory, which began in a two-story hardware store in Long Beach back in 1964. This space was incredible, and everything from the props, to the stage setting, to the costumes is created in-house. They do 14-17 productions in a season, and it’s truly amazing work.
Lastly, we saw the Newport Beach Sculpture in Civic Center Park Exhibition. We learned that Newport Beach moved 300,000 pounds of dirt to allow residents that live above the sculpture garden to keep their million dollar views. Our day was filled with amazing tours and behind-the-scenes facts, and we loved seeing the Arts in Orange County up close!Button
