The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: The Horror

7 p.m.

Our celebrated Hootenanny in the Hills brings L.A.'s finest musicians, storytellers, and comedians to our beautiful sanctuary for a night of music and laughs which the L.A. Times recently called "Hilarious!" and "A compelling experience."

This month's theme is THE HORROR: Music, Comedy, And Storytelling covering horrors however our performers interpret them. Scary songs? Ghost stories? Maybe an appearance by La Llorona? We don't know. Anything could happen (and still be family-friendly, of course).

Host Marty Barrett welcomes special guests Maria Alexander, Marisol Barrett, Chris Bonno, Lisa Finnie, and Steve Johnson, for a night of entertainment in our cool sanctuary that is not to be overlooked.

If you are a parent needing a date night, come right in! We have childcare available for a nominal fee, provided by licensed and trained childcare workers. Please contact Elizabeth Brown at least a week beforehand.

Recommended donation: $10

UUVerdugo Movie Night: "Frankenweenie" (2012)

6 p.m.

Join us for Tim Burton's 2012 feature-length adaptation of his 1984 short film. With the voice talents of Burton movie staples Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O'Hara, and Martin Landau, "Frankenweenie" is a delightful and painstaking black and white, stop-motion animation masterpiece. Come for the movie and stay for snacks and discussion with resident cineaste Paula Hollowell.

Social Action Circle Field Trip
Saturday May 6: Watts Towers Arts Center Campus
Simon Rodia’s Watts Towers/Nuestro Puebla is a 50-60 minute drive from the church.
For info on Watts Towers: www.wattstowers.org
General Admission: $7.00
Seniors/Youth 13-17: $3.00
Children Under 12: FREE
The campus opens at 10 am on Saturdays.
The first docent-led tour is at 10:30 am
We can adjourn for lunch to the nearby Watts Coffee House, which closes at 1 pm.
For info on Watts Coffee House: www.yelp.com/biz/watts-coffee-house-los-angeleswww.facebook.com/pages/Watts-Coffee-House/118238671520899
The Coffee House opens at 8 am, so if people would like to have breakfast there we could leave the church at 8:00 am, have breakfast and then tour the Arts Center, or we can meet at the church at 9:00 am, travel to the Towers, and then have lunch.  I am concerned that lunch might be rushed.
If six or more people commit to participate, we can rent a van and all travel together.
Please let me know if you would like to participate in the field trip by sending me a message at vp@verdugo.org
In your message please inform me as to whether:
-       You are willing to drive, and if so, how many passengers your car will hold.
-       Whether you prefer that we have breakfast or lunch at Watts Coffee House.
Please indicate that you are committed to participating by May 1.
