Stamp Collector Day At The Pasadena Playhouse

California's Pasadena Playhouse will host Stamp Collectors Day: A Celebration of the Stamp tomorrow, Saturday, April 11 from 12 noon to 3 P.M. in honor of their current production Mauritius.

Mauritius is a tale of two half-sisters who vie for the rights to a recently inherited valuable stamp collection. As they fight each other for possession, the women also come face-to-face with three con artists who have their own ideas involving the stamps.

A pictorial postmark (designed by graphic artist Eric Pargac) will be available to the public at the theatre.

Synthia Saint James, international award-winning artist and designer of the first Kwanzaa stamp will give a presention. I will also be speaking about stamps and stamp collecting as well as giving away a bunch of stamps that were provided by the American Philatelic Society.

Jana Monji, the theatre reviewer for, did a nice article on me to help promote the event. You can read it by clicking here.

Jana also did a nice piece on Synthia. Click here to read.

Collectors who call the Pasadena Playhouse box office at at 626-356-7529 are eligible to receive two for one tickets to the show by mentioning code AD87. The offer is good only through April 20.
