NEWSIES……Summerlin Library…..April 2-27 2019

Read all about it!   NEWSIES the play that was adapted for the stage from the popu­lar Disney film. Based on the 1899 true story of a courageous group of scrappy newsboys who become unlikely heroes when they rally forces to fight an unscrupulous newspaper tycoon, NEWSIES features a book by Harvey Fierstein, lyrics by Jack Feldman, and music by legendary composer Alan Menken. With its exciting score, fun choreography, and defy-all-odds inspirational story, Disney’s NEWSIES will have you cheering — and The Summerlin Library is the place to see it.

The play takes place in turn-of-the century New York City – Newsies is the boisterous story of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged newsies. When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!

Signature Productions began in 1989 as a nonprofit community theatre company by Dr. Karl M. Larsen a local Optometrist, and attorney Victor J. Austin. Originally, the company moved into a 3500 sq. ft. storefront unit at the corner of Charleston and Decatur where they built a small 200 seat theatre. Currently, they are housed in the Summerlin Library and Performing Arts Center, where they rent the space for each production.

The goal of Signature Productions is to provide a venue for young performers, designers and technicians to grow and develop their natural abilities while veteran performers, designers and technicians teach and inspire! The company has 2-3 major productions per year, usually musicals, which require approximately 4 months per production. The auditions have drawn as many as 350 aspiring artists to audition.

The Summerlin Library Theatre has 284 seats and every seat has a great view of the stage.  This is a great place to see a show.  Tickets cost $30, and offers a senior (60 and over) discount as well as student discount of $28 per ticket and children tickets are $20.

The Knights got Stoned

The Vegas Golden Knights have made another trade just before the deadline to take another run at the Stanley Cup in their second season. The Knights acquired high-scoring winger Mark Stone from the Ottawa Senators on Monday for defense prospect Erik Brannstrom, forward Oscar Lindberg and the Dallas Stars’ 2020 second-round pick. Vegas also received minor league forward Tobias Lindberg in the trade.

Stone is a top-line talent the Golden Knights hope can help them make another deep playoff run as they did last year in getting to the Cup Final. “He plays a complete game, plays every situation, and he’s going to really help our hockey club,” coach Gerard Gallant said. “He was the top guy on the board and we went out and got him, so it shows our players what we want to do and get things on track here and get going again.”

Losing 10 of their past 13 games has hurt the Golden Knights in a top-heavy Pacific Division, but Stone should provide an immediate boost. The 26-year-old has 28 goals and 34 assists for 62 points in 59 games this season; two points shy of his career high.

Stone is in the midst of his fifth consecutive 20-goal and 50-point season. And he said on Canadian television he agreed to but hadn’t yet signed a long-term contract extension, which makes the trade all the more valuable for the Golden Knights.

“He’s been great for a lot of years now, it feels like,” Vegas center William Karlsson said. “Huge addition for our roster. The guy can pass, the guy can score, so he’s kind of the full package.”

After trading a first-, a second- and a third-round pick at the 2018 deadline for winger Tomas Tatar, Golden Knights general manager George McPhee again anted up for a playoff push. Owner Bill Foley wanted his franchise to win a title within the first five years, and this is another move to help that effort in the short and long term.

All it cost Vegas off its NHL roster is Oscar Lindberg, a 27-year-old who has 12 points in 35 games this season. The team took him from the New York Rangers in the expansion draft, drafted Brannstrom in 2017 with the pick it received from the Islanders to take Mikhail Grabovski’s contract off their hands and got the second-rounder from Dallas for Marc Methot, whom they selected from the Senators in the expansion draft.

Go Knights Go!

What are the last 2 words of the National Anthem? “Play Ball” !!!!!

On April 9, Summerlin will hear that phrase, when the new $150 million Las Vegas Ballpark opens. Built by the Howard Hughes Corp. – the same developer of the master-plan community the ball park resides in – Summerlin; the Ballpark is across the street from the very successful Downtown Summerlin, a shopping, restaurant and entertainment destination.  Additionally, the City National Arena (where the Vegas Golden Knight practice) is next door and Red Rock Hotel and Casino is just up the street.

The new stadium will feature 4Topps Premium Seating’s innovative Air Flow seats! Over 8,000 seats will be installed in the stadium’s lower tier bowls, suites and party zones, as well as in both outfield corner sections, where the seats will swivel 360 degrees with a front beverage railing. The installation makes the Aviators the first team in sports history with a home ballpark boasting all seats made from breathable mesh. With the seats, lounge areas and standing social areas, Las Vegas Ballpark’s total capacity is 10,000.

Want to watch it being built? Visit www.thelvballpark.com and check out the time lapse camera! It’s really cool!

The 51’s have changed their name to the Aviators and are now a triple A team for the Oakland A’s and no longer affiliated with the New York Mets.  Professional Sports Catering (PSC) is the official hospitality partner for the new Las Vegas Ballpark. PSC, the leader in food and beverage for Minor League Baseball ballparks across the country, will offer fans an array of innovative culinary options throughout the highly anticipated new stadium.

In advance of the Las Vegas Ballpark opening, PSC’s culinary team has begun to identify local restaurateurs to partner with at the ballpark and is studying the culinary trends and preferences that define Las Vegas dining.

They have also launched the Legacy Walk at Las Vegas Ballpark commemorative brick program. The program will allow fans the opportunity to purchase bricks that will be located at the front entrance of the new Las Vegas Ballpark, located in Downtown Summerlin. A portion of every brick sold will be donated to Olive Crest, supporting children who have suffered from abandonment, abuse and neglect.

About a month after opening day, will be our annual group baseball outing… I take several clients and friends to the game every year… my treat! You might say we “have a ball”!

Two plays… just one ticket!

Here are two one act plays, being performed together, that you don’t want to miss, brought to us by the Speeding Theatre & Super Summer Theatre’s Off-season series. “Any Body For Tea” and “The Omelet Murder Case” can be seen on March 7,8,9,14,15,16 | 7:00PM and March 10 & 17 | 2:00PM at Super Summer Theatre’s indoor studios located near “The Strip” at 4340 S Valley View Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89103.(these are not being performed at their outdoor stage at Spring Mountain Ranch)

“Any Body For Tea” is the first one act and I am in this show as homicide detective Dennis O’Finn! (Did you know I was a thespian?)  This is a comedy about six “mature” single ladies that notice a handsome younger man living across the street.  The group decides they have to get his attention somehow.  When they find out he is a homicide detective they execute a plan to meet him and then flirt with him while he tries to figure out “who dunnit”.  Then, the connivers raise the stakes when O’finn begins to ignore their gestures of hospitality.

The second one-act is “The Omelet Murder Case”. This play imagines what would happen if the tragedy of Hamlet were played like a story in a trashy detective novel. Shy on poetry but loaded with poetic license (and laughter) “The Omelet Murder Case” introduces Chicago’s number one private investigator and hack writer, “Shake” Speare. You’ll find references to plenty of the Bard’s other works sprinkled throughout the spoof as well!

 

Both of these plays are set in the 1950s in Chicago – what a coincidence!

For more information you can phone (702) 332-9246 or go online to https://supersummertheatre.org/shows/ to get tickets.

2019 – The Year of the Pig – Parade in Downtown Summerlin

Celebrate Lunar New Year and the Year of the Pig at Downtown Summerlin on Tuesday, February 5 at 6 p.m.  You can enjoy watching the festive Dragon and Lion Dance with a percussion ensemble playing music.  There will also be traditional fan dancers, stilt walkers and of course lucky red envelopes filled with gift cards, while the supply lasts.

The parade route runs down Park Centre Drive in the middle of Downtown Summerlin as long as it is not raining or snowing (ha).  Bring the whole family as I am sure your kiddos will love it.  Make a night of it and go to one of the myriad of restaurants that offer all types of food in every price range.

The Pig is the twelfth of the Chinese Zodiac animals. There is a myth that the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed Pig’s house and he had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.

The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.

Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well. Pigs have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life.  In Chinese culture it is good to be a Pig.

Maybe I’ll see you at the parade!
