The Virgin Valley Theatre Group and 2Nielsens Productions are looking for a few more cast members for the Fly Willie Production which is scheduled for performances on May 1st and 2nd at the Mesquite Community Theatre.

An additional Audition will be held on Saturday, February 14 at 2:30 p.m. at 150 N. Yucca Street in the Green Room right behind the theater.

Fly Willie is an original production written and directed by two-time award-winning director and choreographer Dan Nielsen.

Fly Willie is zany and comical and auditions are full of fun and laughter as no doubt the rehearsals leading up to the performances will be.

Actors/Actresses have some real opportunity to shine in creating their own one-of-a -kind character/characters; there may be multiple parts for some actors/actresses who feel comfortable.

Don’t miss this ground floor opportunity, come Fly Willie, It’s a show too funny to miss being a part of.

The Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society presents “A Vintage Valentine’s Affair” at the Ron Decar’s Event Center on Saturday, February 14 at 11 a.m. Ron DeCar’s Event Center is located at 1201, Las Vegas Boulevard South.

You can enjoy a Valentine Day event and support the Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society, Nevada’s oldest Arts Organization, at this entertaining fundraising event! The public is invited.

The occasion includes lunch; live entertainment by the Musical Arts Singers, College of Southern Nevada Dance Troupe, and Clara Voyient the musician.  The fundraising event also includes wine tasting and a silent auction and raffle.

The Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society is a 501c3 non-profit community organization whose purpose is the promotion and performance of quality choral and orchestra masterworks, musical productions, and chamber concerts consistent with a strong community and educational outreach in Southern Nevada.
