Community Calendar Jan. 25-31, 2018

The Mesquite Balloon Festival kicks off at 7:30 a.m. on Jan. 26 and each morning through Jan. 28 with a balloon launch at the Oasis parking lot. The event also features “candlestick glows” nightly at 6 p.m. where the balloons create an extraordinary light show and includes a champagne tasting inside the CasaBlanca Resort’s Skydome Lounge on Saturday at 4 p.m.  See the full schedule online at www.mesquitelocalnews.com.

Get ready to rock-n-roll with your favorite girl group songs from the 1960s when the Virgin Valley Theatre Group opens its musical production of the “Marvelous Wonderettes, Dream On” on Friday, Jan. 26.

The Virgin Rivers Communities Meeting is being held this evening at the Beaver Dam Fire Station in Beaver Dam. This is a great opportunity for the Arizona Strip residents to get involved in their community. For more information on how you can get involved, contact Peggy Owen at Peggy90755@yahoo.com.

Want to try your hand at acting, working back stage or anything theater related? Give it a go at the auditions for Neil Simon’s comedy “Last of the Red Hot Lovers” which will be directed by Denis Feehan.

Auditions are Monday and Tuesday at 6 p.m. Auditions will take place in the Green Room, behind the Mesquite Community Theatre, 150 N. Yucca St.

A representative from the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Nevada Radon Education Program will give a radon presentation. Attendees will learn about the health risk of radon, how to test for the gas and what can be done to reduce an elevated level in a home, which lowers residents’ risk of developing lung cancer. Participants will also have the opportunity to receive a FREE radon test kit at this event.   For more information call 1-888-RADON10, (1-888-723-6610) or email noeln@unce.unr.edu.
