The Eclipse Theatre Company will be presenting two more presentations of its latest show, “Appaloosa,” at The MAIN in Newhall on Saturday.

The play was originally written in February, said Eclipse co-owner Nancy Lantis, by her husband, Phil. Rehearsals began in the same month once The MAIN gave them a slot to present their show. The MAIN also provides a space for independent productions during the second and third weekends of each month, she said.

“It is an original play that people have not seen before,” she said. “Once we close this weekend, it’s gone. You’re going to see an original play that no one outside of the valley will see.”

The show is about two estranged brothers coming together to help their mother, who suffers from dementia. The family must get past the abuse and division instilled by their father and find forgiveness with each other.

Tickets will cost $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. Saturday’s performances will be at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of both shows. Seating will be first come, first serve. Those who need ADA seating must call this number, 661-290-2255, 24 hours in advance.
