Community Calendar Dec. 4 – 10, 2014

You’ll want to set aside some time this weekend to attend the 5th annual Community Christmas Concert sponsored by the Greater Mesquite Arts Foundation and coordinated by Larry LeMieux.

This year’s theme is a Christmas Story and the script is written and directed by the Virgin Valley Theatre Group’s Jenna Grubb and Matt McDonald.

The community groups, individuals and church choirs are too many to mention so you’ll just have to be at the Mesquite Community Theatre on either Friday or Saturday nights at 7 p.m. to see all the awesome talent yourself.

The Virgin Valley Theatre Group is holding auditions for the spring musical, “Zombies from the Beyond”

“Zombies…” is a take-off of the 50’s and 60’s “B” science-fiction movies about invaders from outer space. The cast consists of 4 males and 3 females. There’s singing, dancing…and ray guns!

Actors should come dressed to move. The director will be using cuttings from the script, so no prepared pieces are necessary. A prepared song is optional – accompaniment will be provided if you bring the sheet music.

The VVTG is also looking for a drummer and an accordionist for the band. The drummer can have his/her own drums or not, as they have a drum-set available already.”(VVTG)

Don’t miss out on all the wonderful, FREE programs sponsored by the Mesquite library.  Programs such as Microsoft Word will have you creating documents, calendars or other print projects in no time.  Perhaps you’d rather learn a craft…well their holiday card making class may be just what you’re looking for.

The Mesquite library has programs nearly every day to enhance, educate and help you live a better life here in Mesquite, check them out anytime Monday through Saturday.

Don’t forget….10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday you can find some one of a kind Christmas gifts and support your local artists when you shop at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery.

VVAA hosts its annual Christmas Boutique of fine gifts all month long.  This premiere shopping event features all original, handmade items.  This is where you can find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for-person in your life.

You can find all the upcoming holiday events right here in the community calendar every Thursday or online at www.mesquitelocalnews.com/category/calendar.

Send all your holiday events to tphilswife@aol.com, please put “community calendar” in the subject line or your submission may get lost in cyber space.  I’ll be happy to help you spread the word.
