The Pasadena Playhouse was born in 1917. In 1935, the Pasadena Playhouse Association held its first annual Midsummer Drama Festival. The Festival was planned with the idea of providing the playgoer with good stage entertainment during the traditionally slow summer season, when most theatres closed their doors. To make the Festival very interesting, each play was confined to a one week run, and all were based on one central idea--a single author, a specific type of play, or possibly an outstanding historical event. Here Victor Mature is the young man with the spear in G. B. Shaw's "Back to Methuselah" (part 3) which was the last play of the Fourth Festival.
