Two shows at the Onyx Theatre are starting 2011 with a bang. A Broadway-themed “Karnival,” replete with singers and dancers, will be performed on Wednesday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. “Karnival” is one of Vegas’ most established monthly shows and can be seen at the Onyx on the first Wednesday of each month. These performers pride themselves on spine-tingling oddities as well as the entertainment value of their shows and each performance features a different spread of sensory acts. For more “Karnival” coverage, view a post on their Halloween show here.
“Karnival” will be performed on Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased here.
“A Little Song and Dance” will follow closely on the heels of Karnival. Tia Taymar from the Miley Achievement Center and Marko Westwood, the artistic director of the Las Vegas Repertory Dance Theater, are teaming up to present a concert on Jan. 7 and 8 to benefit education.
Ten choreographers have donated their work to the show, which will showcase choreography by Tiffany Caudullo, Serena Bartholomew, Petrina Olson, Onishia Murillo, Anna Michele Fazio and Westwood himself. Many of the dance pieces will be accompanied by live vocals and music and several guest artists are part of the program as well, including Ava Galore, cast members from Rag Tag Entertainment’s upcoming production of “RENT” and Arles Estate.
“A Little Song and Dance” will be performed on Jan. 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and proceeds will be donated to the Miley Achievement center. Visit the Onyx Theater website or call (702) 732-7225 for more details.
