The Phantom of the Opera is Hollywood Hosts

Gina Viscusi Elson and April Hocking went "inside our minds" with a tablescape designed for Gentry Magazine and the Stanford Park Hotel's Hollywood Hosts Event for Peninsula Youth Theatre. The idea was to stage a table as though the character in a movie was the host of party. Gina and April envisioned the Phantom luring Christine to his cave where they "sing together in a strange duet and his power over her grows stronger yet..." The tablescape, featuring a collection of objets d'arts and one red rose, was raffled off to benefit Peninsula Youth Theatre.

Tiffany & Co was there too. Their vignette was "Ocean's Thirteen." They always choose a film that relates to Tiffany & Co. and apparently Brad Pitt wears a Tiffany watch in the movie : )

Neiman Marcus joined the fun and they did a tablescape for "Little Mermaid" - it was a fanta-sea come true! Six tablescapes total, the raffle and auction brought in significant money for this wonderful children's theatre. The entire event will be highlighted in the May 2009 issue of Gentry Magazine.

A few of the talented Peninsula Youth Theatre kids performed songs from their upcoming season.
