Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Ms. Senior Mesquite Pageant coordinators are hosting a question and answer forum and collecting applications for the 2015 Ms. Senior Mesquite Pageant which is scheduled to be held in April.

If you are a female Mesquite Resident over 60 and you would be interested in joining the Ms. Senior Mesquite Pageant, come to the informational meeting and they will be happy to answer any questions you may have.  Former Queens will be on hand to answer questions about their experience in the competition.

The Virgin Valley Theatre Group opens their 13th season on Friday with Nana’s Naughty Knickers.

Come on down to the Mesquite Community Theatre Friday or Saturday and watch Sylvia Charles, her granddaughter Bridget and her best friend Vera Walters as they try to hide their “business” ventures from the New York City Police officer Tom and the Landlord Gil Schmidt in this very funny play.

Nana’s Naughty Knickers will have you laughing right along with the UPS men and possibly right out of your seats.

Don’t miss this wonderfully fun comedy at the Mesquite Community Theatre, 150 N. Yucca Street at 7 p.m.

Tickets are only $15 and are available at Danielle’s Chocolates, Mesquite Chamber of Commerce, Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery, Have Boutique Will Travel and the Mesquite Community Theatre Box Office.

You can save money by purchasing season tickets for only $40, contact the VVTG secretary at vvtheatre@gmail.com.

Check out the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery on Tuesday at 6 p.m. as Paul Benedict shares with us the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  If you’ve never heard Benedict share a dramatic reading you won’t want to miss this opportunity; you’re in for a real treat!

It’s a big calendar this week and we print as much of it in the paper as space allows but you can always check the complete calendar with a full list of weekly recurring activities which will help keep you fit, informed and entertained at www.mesquitelocalnews.com.

Remember to send all your meeting, events or entertainment information to tphilswife@aol.com; please put “Community Calendar” in the subject line or your submission may get overlooked.   I’ll be happy to help you spread the word.
