Community Calendar Aug. 14 – 20, 2014

Are you a musician? Do you love to hear the oldies played live? Do you want to be a part of a fun group?  If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you won’t want to miss the music jam at Guns & Guitars.

You don’t have to be a great musician; you just have to love music and want to have fun.  Join Jan, Mike and the rest of the crowd Thursday at 6 p.m., you won’t be sorry.

Perhaps you have a love for classical theatre but find it a bit intimidating because you don’t understand the language.  The Virgin Valley Theatre Group is committed to making Shakespeare accessible to everyone.

Shakespeare has been called the “Greatest writer in the English language” an now you can pick up on some quick basics of his work with the help of the Virgin Valley Theatre Group’s educational workshops which are held  at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery Classroom 15 West Mesquite Blvd.

Maybe Shakespeare isn’t you theatre preference, do you like to have fun with characterization?  Are you a mover and shaker?  Then Fly Willie is the place to be, “farm livin’ is the life for me…..”  do you recognize the song?

The Virgin Valley Theatre Group has a different kind of workshop, still part of the VVTG educational series, the Sunday evening, Fly Willie, workshop focuses on the physical side of comedy, characterization and choreography.

You don’t have to dance to be part of the workshop, dancers are welcome but the workshop is being split so actors who are just interested in working on characterization can join the first half of the workshop from 4-5:30 p.m.

Those who want to dance can join the second half of the workshop from 5:30-7 p.m. Of course those who want to do both are welcome to join the VVTG for the full three hour workshop.

Check the complete calendar with a full list of weekly recurring activities to keep you fit, informed and entertained at www.mesaquitelocalnews.com.

Remember to send all your meeting, events or entertainment information to tphilswife@aol.com; I’ll help you spread the word.
