Today's Top Costumes

Halloween is the perfect opportunity to make a statement, show off our wild side, put our inner super-hero (Or super-villain!) on display and have fun being someone else for a change. This year, top costume curators have identified the most-popular trends in costuming. A Chorus Line, Santa Clarita's favorite costumer's top six are: Wonder Woman, Game of Thrones, Vikings, Super Villains, Super Heroes and Pirates. Not eager to grab your shield and fight for good (Or evil!?)? That's ok. A Chorus Line also offers full customized costume-styling services, so think outside the box and then give them a call!

Have Fun - Safely!
Teaching and modeling healthy Halloween behaviors sets the tone for safe and sane celebrations! Here are some things to incorporate into your family's traditions.
Wear reflective wristbands to help night drivers see you after dark.

Be "car" safe and "pedestrian" safe!
When driving on Halloween, be extraordinarily cautious. When walking the neighborhood, cross at stop signs and in cross walks, when available. Avoid crossing mid street, where parked cars can block a driver's view of you. If crossing mid street is the only option, make sure to look both ways for cars and proceed with caution.

Enjoy your candy - in moderation.
It is recommended that parents sort through their child's candy. Ensure that all pieces are in their original sealed wrappers. If not, toss it. Then let your kids select a limited amount of pieces to keep. Be sure to set clear boundaries - dispense a certain amount allowed to be eaten per day, for example. Discuss with your children the importance of balancing their treats with healthier options; explain how water, instead of soda or juice, can be their lunch or dinner beverage to balance the extra sugar they enjoyed in their candy. Take the remaining sweets to a local dentist's office or schools who donate the candy to non-profit organizations and military efforts.

"The Addams Family"
Visits the Canyon Theatre Guild

Join your favorite family in the devilishly-delightful Halloween musical-comedy spectacular! The Addams Family and all of their ancestors are coming to haunt the Canyon Theatre Guild in Old Town Newhall starting September 23 through October 28. "The Addams Family" features an original story but it is based on the iconic comic and television series. The same quintessential characters who you know and love are back with a new wonderfully-whacky family uproar. The story begins with Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, who has grown up and fallen in love with Lucas Beineke, a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's "normal" boyfriend and his parents. This Broadway smash features all-original songs like, "When You're an Addams," "Full Disclosure" and "Crazier than You" - music so riveting, it is guaranteed to have you and the whole family jumping in with the ancestors and dancing along right with them!
