These two have a number of things in common. Both Vegas and vaudeville tend to be sexy and quite comical in equal measure. Sequens are often involved. Both showcase a wide variety of performers and talent, and on Friday, Sept. 16, these two legendary performing industries will be represented onstage by cast members of “The Lion King.”

These fine folks are sashaying away from Pride Rock for an evening of soft-shoe, song and dance, all accompanied by a side-show atmosphere that was the bread-and-butter of the showbiz world for 50 years.

The show is called, appropriately, “Vegas Vaudeville” and is a one-night-only event at 7 p.m. the Nicholas J. Horn Theatre on the Cheyenne campus of the College of Southern Nevada. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students. For more information or to reserve tickets, contact the CSN box office at (702) 651-5483 or e-mail
