SCV Scene

The busy social season is in full swing in the Santa Clarita Valley! However, things should start to slow down a little around Thanksgiving, which is only about a month away. I’ve already seen Christmas items in some stores! Where has the year flown?

Saint Kateri today

Canonization of Blessed Kateri Catholic Church, 22508 Copper Hill Drive, Saugus, will be today at 12:30 p.m. From that point forward, the parish will be known as Saint Kateri. The Canonization coincides with the Vatican’s ceremony in Rome. It’s a huge event for the Saugus church which has been planning for this day for months.

Support the arts

The Repertory East Playhouse will be holding its sixth annual Hollywood and Broadway fundraiser to support The Rep on Friday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 3 at the theater on Main Street in downtown Newhall. Tickets are $35 each and include complimentary wine and appetizers. A no-host bar is also available in the Hydeaway Lounge at The Rep. The evening begins at 7 p.m. with a cocktail reception. At 8 p.m. the music begins with a program of music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, composer of “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Cats,” “Evita,” “Jesus Christ Superstar” and other Broadway hits.

Jordana Capra in film

Saugus resident Jordana Capra has the role (in her words) of a “vile government judge” in the new film “Atlas Shrugged Part 2.” In a recent email to her friends Capra urged them to see the film. “I saw a screening of “Atlas Shrugged II” last week and it is one of the most exciting action films, and yet one of the smartest, thought provoking and beautifully shot films I have ever seen,” she wrote. “Seriously, go see this. And I hope you like my work in my little scene, too.” The film doesn’t appear to be playing in the SCV, but can be found in Chatsworth, Simi Valley and West Hills.
