Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This weekend is all about fun times.  We have parades, softball tournaments, carnivals, food and don’t forget the world premiere of “Fly Willie”!  With all of this it’s sure to be a weekend full of fun!

See our special Mesquite Days section for all the times and places for the Mesquite Days activities.

Vegas talent combined with our own Virgin Valley Theatre Group’s stars of the stage offer up lots of laughs in the zany new comedy “Fly Willie” at the Mesquite Community Theatre May 1, 2 and 3.

Friday, May 1 will kick off this world premier presentation with a Red Carpet opening at 5:45 p.m.  Joint the cast and VIP guests as they arrive “Hollywood style” and walk the red carpet for the opening of this “Zany new Comedy” written and directed by two time award winning director and choreographer Dan Nielsen.

Fly Willie has been a year-long educational project for the VVTG actors.  Workshops and rehearsals were instructed and directed by Dan and Diana Nielsen of 2Nielsens Productions in Las Vegas.

Fly Willie’s special guest is professional opera singer Marco Antonio Varela.

Proceeds from the Mesquite show will go to Virgin Valley Theatre Group’s educational funding $1.00 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project in appreciation of Eureka Casino’s support of the VVTG.

The Virgin Valley Artists sponsor a free presentation on Tuesday, May 5 by Lost City Museum Archaeologist Molly Fierer-Donaldson who will speak on her work in South America.  Guests can enjoy their own brown bag lunches during this noontime presentation.
