July 19: Scenic Captures in Photography – Artist Reception at The MAIN
Time: 7:00 p.m.

The city of Santa Clarita invites you to attend an artist reception for the photography exhibit featuring Ryan Coursey and Ron Pinkerton at The MAIN. Guests will enjoy light snacks, music and a chance to meet the photographers.

“Don’t Listen to What They Say! Go See!” presents photographs from artist Ryan Coursey’s travels. Ryan is a travel and landscape photographer and videographer with over 10 years of Hollywood post-production experience. After working with some of Hollywood’s biggest names on TV, commercial, and animated projects, Ryan decided to form his own business out of Burbank called RYCO.LA, specializing in photography, videography and aerial drone company. A selection of Ryan’s colorful scenic captures will be featured in this exhibit.

“The Last Stand: Night Photography and Light Painting in the Mojave Desert,” by artist Ron Pinkerton features images created by using a technique known as light painting, which involves the use of moonlight and a hand-held flashlight or theater gels. Ron’s images explore the mythology and reality of the desert. Ron explains, “The mythology includes the idea that the desert is a blank canvas, a place of freedom, where one can pursue their dreams…that mythology is not without merit, but it is tempered by the reality of the desert. Life is hard, distances are far, and success is rare.”

July 20: The Comedy of Errors – Shakespeare at Newhall Family Theatre
Time: 7:00 p.m.

The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays – his shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, focusing a major part of its humor on slapstick and mistaken identity.

The play tells the story of two sets of identical twins, accidentally separated at birth. As adults, one twin arrives at a town that turns out to be the home of the other twin brother. A series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities leads to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, arrests, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.

This year, free Shakespeare performances are performed at the newly renovated (and air-conditioned) Newhall Family Theatre for the Performing Arts. Elizabethan fun for the entire family.

July 20: Harold and Maude at The MAIN
Time: 8:00 p.m.

THE Tavern Brawlers present Harold and Maude, the play
written by Colin Higgins and directed by Marlowe Weisman:
Friday July 20, 2018 – 8:00 p.m.
Saturday July 21, 2018 – 8:00 p.m .
Sunday July 22, 2018 – 2:00 p.m.

“Adapted by Colin Higgins from his 1971 cult film starring Ruth Gordon and Bud Cort, HAROLD AND MAUDE is about a suicidal 19-year-old boy who finally learns how to truly live when he meets the delightfully eccentric octogenarian, Maude. Harold is the proverbial poor little rich kid. His alienation has caused him to attempt suicide several times. His peculiar attachment to the sensitive, free-spirited Maude, whom he meets at a funeral (a mutual passion) is what saves him… and what captivates us. Based on the darkly comic and ultimately life-affirming classic (honored as one of the 100 Funniest Movies of All Time by the American Film Institute), the stage play of Harold and Maude is a nostalgic charmer that will captivate old fans and new audiences alike.”

Doors open 30 minutes prior to show time. Seating is first come, first served. Tickets: $20 Adults; $18 Students and Seniors. If you require ADA seating, please call 661-290-2255 at least 24 hours prior to show time. No refunds available.
