Beat the heat this July and enjoy cool theatre shows in air-conditioned comfort at The Main, located at 24266 Main Street in Old Town Newhall.

Two theatre classes are being offered this month: puppet making for students and adult acting classes.

Additionally, tickets are now on sale for a variety of theatre, comedy and music shows. Adult beverages will also be available for purchase at select shows, in addition to concessions.

Due to the Independence Day holiday falling on the first Thursday of July, the 10 by 10 Variety Night is canceled this month. Don’t miss the next show on August 1, featuring music, film, storytelling, magic, comedy and more!

Comedy Mashup returns to The MAIN on Friday, July 5 at 8:00 p.m. This monthly show is half stand-up comedy and half improv featuring comedians and improvisers from all over Los Angeles. Headlining this month is Jason Cheny, who won The World Series of Comedy main event in Las Vegas, participated in the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival, appeared on “Laughs” on Fox and Hulu and was on “Laff Tracks” on TruTV. Also performing are Michael Evans, Willie Simon and show host Nolan Culver. Rounding out the show is hilarious improv from “Your Favorite Cast.” Tickets are $10 presale and $15 on the day of the show.

The Society Comedy Troupe is bringing a hilarious and energetic team improv show to The MAIN on Saturday, July 6 at 8:00 p.m. Similar to the TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” the performers ask for audience participation while creating improvised music, comedy and scenes. Grab your friends for an evening of laughs at this show that’s appropriate for all ages. Tickets are $15.

Returning to The Main this July is the Acting Scene Study and Technique class, offered by acting teacher Stephen Whelan. Geared for individuals 16 and older, the class gives students the opportunity to read, analyze, memorize and perform a scene and monologue. Additionally, students will learn relaxation and warm-up techniques for the body, voice and mind. Classes occur on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m., with the six-week session beginning July 8 and ending August 12. Session enrollment is $120 per student.

Beginning July 9, The Main will be home to a children’s workshop with Puppet Master Steve Troop. This wonderful and creative class combines the craft of puppet making with the skills of performing and none of the stage fright! Students will design and build their own puppet and learn to bring them to life. Children will design, cut and glue to create their puppet while learning acting and improv techniques to make a performance at the end of the course. Class will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., July 9 through August 1, and is ideal for students ages 9 through 16. Session enrollment is $200 per student.

Get excited for our theatrical production of the month. The Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival will bring a more modern envisioning of Moliere’s “Tartuffe” to The Main stage. Set against the backdrop of 1980s excess in Beverly Hills, this updated Tartuffe examines the evil that men can commit under the guise of religious fervor and the dangers that imperil those who would believe only what they choose to believe despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary. This comedy is part of the Summer Theatre Festival and will happen at The MAIN on July 19 at 8:00 p.m., July 20 at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., and July 21 and 28 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for students and seniors.

Note by Note is a free music night delighting audiences with a variety of genres. Bands, duos and soloists will perform a wide range of styles, including rock, folk, Celtic, Americana, blues, jazz, country, experimental, western and more! This month, look out for soulful singer-songwriter, Rachel Mazer. The show is on Thursday, July 24 at 7:00 p.m., and is free to attend.

The Sidecar Music Series is back and better than ever as The Fahr West Sessions visits the MAIN stage for some classic rock and Americana music. Based in Santa Clarita, these long-time friends love playing together and it shows in the energy of their live performances. The show is Friday, July 26 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $10, and all proceeds go directly to the theater.

After a month off, “Soundcheck” returns with the musical stylings of Dean Decay and a soon to be announced band. “Soundcheck” is the SCVTV Community Media Center’s newest music series that provides a platform for young musicians from the Santa Clarita Valley to show off their musical prowess with the performance of original songs. The show is Saturday, July 27 at 8:00 p.m. and tickets are $10 for general admission and $8 for students with I.D.

Learn more about these classes and purchase tickets to shows by visiting AtTheMain.org/tickets.
