My father always said "There are two kinds of people in the world - the quick, and the hungry." Lots of Las Vegas locals are hungry for live theatre and dance but we'll miss the good stuff if we don't spread the word! 


With so many bright lights and crowded casinos, it is hard to find a way for local performing arts companies to make their presence known...but you are going to want to know them because they offer a wide variety of shows created by talented artists that are engaging, entertaining, and affordable. We're here to let you know what's out there, and what your friends are enjoying around town. 


This site is dedicated to telling the public about events that are produced locally and independently at the college level or above. We encourage your comments, and ratings of your experiences. Please be aware that though we don't expect you to love everything, comments that are indecent, slanderous or deemed to be a personal attack rather than a constructive criticism of your experience are inappropriate, and will not be approved for posting.


So will you please join us for some tasty theatre treats? Your table is waiting. Dig in, go to a show and post a comment or rating. It's time to be one of the quick and EAT MORE ART!
