Whether you prefer the heart-stirring twang of a country song, the hilarity of talented animals or the heavy beat of a drum, the 2015-16 Season at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) at College of the Canyons has exactly what you need for an unforgettable afternoon or evening out on the town.
This year's stellar season kicks off September 12 with the incomparable classic rock band Kansas.
Known for timeless hit singles like "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind," this powerhouse rock band is responsible for serving as the soundtrack for the lives of multiple generations of music lovers. They've played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, now hear them in the intimate 800+ seat PAC!
Hot on the heels of Kansas comes Nashville - or rather the talent-filled super group from Nashville known as The Time Jumpers.
A favorite at the world-famous Stagecoach Musical Festival this year, the band features musical greats Vince Gill, Kenny Sears, and Riders In The Sky front man Ranger Doug Green, along with a host of other well-known musicians.
The Time Jumpers very rarely leave the arms of their Nashville residency, so don't miss your opportunity to see this band live in action September 30.
If family shows are more your style, consider purchasing tickets to some of our "fun for the whole family" shows.
The production of "Room on the Broom" will delight audiences on October 24, as the tale of a sweet witch, a cat and a very tall hat comes to life before your eyes. The Golden Dragon Acrobats are also scheduled to flip, dance and amaze their way onto the PAC stage in a spectacularly colorful show taking place October 30.
Not to be outdone by those pesky humans, the show "Stunt Dog Experience" will bring an afternoon of high-energy excitement - in the form of some seriously talented furry friends - to the PAC on November 13.
For an afternoon of nostalgia, the PAC brings to the stage one of the most recognized and beloved storybook characters in history with a production of "The Cat in the Hat" on January 17. Accompanied by fellow Dr. Seuss characters "Thing One" and "Thing Two," this mischievous Cat has some tricks up his sleeve!
The PAC season is also proud to serve up some cultural flavor with a diverse offering of soulful springtime shows.
You won't want to miss the American Chicano rock power trio Los Lonely Boys, who will be visiting the PAC on February 20. From their smash hit debut single "Heaven" to their current album "Revelation," this band knows how to bring an audience to their feet.
If powerful drumming - that you can feel all the way to your toes - combined with the beauty of exotic costumes and athletic bodies interests you, then make plans to see the performance group TAO, which makes a return visit to the PAC in its newest show "TAO: Seventeen Samurai" on March 13.
The season finishes strong on April 17, with one of the biggest stars in country music - John Michael Montgomery. With hits like "Life's a Dance" to "I Can Love You Like That" audiences are sure to recognize some of Montgomery's most beloved songs being crooned from the PAC stage.
In addition to these fantastic COC Presents shows, the PAC will also offer a number of lively community performances from ESCAPE Theatre, Santa Clarita Ballet, Santa Clarita Master Chorale and Santa Clarita Regional Theatre.
The COC theatre, dance & music departments will also be performing throughout the season, offering you the chance to see the stars of tomorrow shine on stage today.
With so many enticingly diverse shows being offered this season, you wont want to miss your chance to add the PAC to your "to do" list.
