The city of Santa Clarita is inviting the public to make a Thursdays@Newhall resolution in the new year as it prepares to kick off a pair of free events in January.
Thursdays@Newhall is an ongoing opportunity for residents of Santa Clarita to attend shows, concerts and special events on Thursdays throughout the year.
The 2019 schedule starts from 7 to 9 p.m. on Jan. 3 at The Main, located at 24266 Main St., with the monthly 10 By 10 show as 10 performers take the stage for 10 minutes each and share their comedy, storytelling, short films and music.
Tom Crawford will make a stop in Santa Clarita to enrapture the audience with his storytelling. The actor and performer has appeared in such shows as “Grace and Frankie,” “Lodge 49” and “How to Get Away with Murder.”
Performances this month will also include storytelling with Sam Feirstein; comedy by John Wynn and Aidan Park; magic by Liam Johnson; ventriloquism with Dan Sachoff; music by Emily Zuzik and Joe Romersa; belly dancing by the Dunia Dancers; and a screening of short film “The Firefly Girls,” directed by Katie Micay.
