Have you ever wanted to act or to be a part of the theatre?

The Virgin Valley Theatre Group is holding auditions for Nana’s Naughty Knickers tonight and tomorrow at the Mesquite Community Theatre from 6-9 p.m.

Nana’s Naughty Knickers is a comedy written by Katherine DiSavino and includes the following cast members:

SYLVIA CHARLES – In her early eighties, living like she’s in her early twenties.
VERA WALTERS – Sylvia’s aged accomplice: equipped with two hearing aids and a collapsible walker.
BRIDGET CHARLES – Sylvia’s unsuspecting, 20-something, soon-to-be-law-student granddaughter.
TOM O’GRADY – The newest cop on the force, happily assigned the beat where Sylvia’s apartment is.
GIL SCHMIDT – The landlord, overly eager to rid himself of his aged tenants. 60s.
HEATHER VAN PREE – Employee of Saucy Lips, looking for better opportunities, a modeling career, or just her boxes.
CLAIR – The big client. Mid 60s.
VOICE – The man at the front desk. Slightly bored and always sarcastic.
UPS MAN – Cute and a little lonely.
OTHER UPS MAN – The strong and silent type.

If you have a bit of stage fright and might not be ready for the stage perhaps you can sign on as a back of the house volunteer and help out with set painting, props or back stage crew.

Contact the Virgin Valley Theatre Group for this and other  volunteer opportunities at vvtheatre@gmail.com.

This weekend you can enjoy the classic rock from the Las Vegas based band PHEONIX.

PHOENIX has performed throughout Las Vegas, California and Arizona including two years at the New York, New York where they hosted standing room only crowds.

PHOENIX is known for their powerful and exciting authentic rock performances and has been called, “The best rock cover band ever!” by many of their audience members.

If Rock-n-Roll isn’t your bag perhaps martial arts is.  You can see the future stars of MMA right here in Mesquite.

The Casablanca resort is once again hosting Mayhem in Mesquite on Saturday.

Come on down and watch these future champions battle it out in a place where MMA students can hone their skills and demonstrate them in front of a live audience in a safe environment.

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