I figured it out:

$group = 'SomeGroup'; //name of group you want to list members of
$groupdir = 'OU=MH Users and Groups,DC=mh,DC=local'; //directory where the group resides
$filter = 'memberof=cn=$group,$groupdir'; //filter
$fields = array('dispayName','memberof','mail');

ldap_search($connect, $base_dn, $filter,$fields);

Also you can wrap it with an '&' and objectClass=person to make the search more effiecient:

IE: $filter='($(objectClass=person)(......))';
