November 16th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1960 at 12:30 p.m, the drama group of both the Senior and Junior Woman’s Clubs of Seal Beach presented “Boudoir Memoirs,” a 15-act show of fictional and historical romances in the city hall auditorium as part of their annual “fun day” luncheon.

The Los Angeles Times wouldn’t even mention the women’s liberation movement until 1969, so it’s not too surprising that the players were listed thusly (L-R): Mrs. Donald L. Hadley as Cleopatra, Mrs. C. L. Smith as Caesar, and Mrs. Sven Lindstrom as Mark Antony

The show was directed Mrs. Walter Swift and Mrs. David Wolfe. The players were Mrs. Ken Birchard, Mrs. Sven Lindstrom, Mrs. Lester Davis, Mrs. Benny Rapp, Mrs. Allen Denton, Mrs. Bill Shafer, Mrs. Conrad Feierabend, Mrs. Leo Khury, Mrs. Arthur Berke, and Mrs. Claude Smith.
