Jake's Women

Neil Simon’s JAKE’S WOMEN is a premiere performance at the Neil Simon Festival of one of the playwright’s funniest shows ever.  Jake’s Women finds the central character, a novelist with more fictional than real life success as he tries to work through a marital crisis after he is found daydreaming about women he has known in the early days of his life.  As reality and fiction blur with wildly comedic and sometimes moving flashbacks, he begins to question his own sanity.

Movies in the Park

When the news of our local leaders’ intention to tear down everything except the anchor buildings on the north, south, east and west corners of an entire block in the center of downtown St. George, to put in grass, the announcement was met with disbelief!  What could our leaders have been thinking in what is now the #1 fastest growing metro-area in the US and where land is anything but affordable?

Phineas and Ferb Light Up St George

What does the Disney TV show “Phineas and Ferb” have in common with St. George, UT?  The answer is Christmas lights … lots and lots of Christmas lights!

The Disney show follows the adventures of stepbrothers Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, who live in the fictional city of Danville, in a (never specified) tri-state area,  as they seek ways to occupy their time during their summer vacation. Often these adventures involve elaborate, life-sized and ostensibly dangerous construction projects.

For the Love of Art Home Tour

The St. George Art Museum’s 10th Annual “For the Love of Art” Home Show is a “little bit of mystery and a whole lot of fun,” scheduled this year on the mornings of Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23.  The mystery is the location of the three upscale homes, each with impressive, one-of-a-kind art collections.  To protect the privacy of our homeowners, the location of each home will be revealed only when art lovers arrive at the address.  The fun is getting to share the ride with friends and neighbors – also on the tour – or get acquainted with other art lovers on one of three comfortable and air-conditioned buses.  There is also the opportunity for interesting conversation about the homes and their art on the bus and later, during lunch at the Painted Pony restaurant.

the tavern

The world premiere of “The Tavern,” a satirical comedy written by the 1930’s most famous song and dance man, George M. Cohan and adapted by Joseph Hanreddy, is certain to be a memorable evening of fun, laughter and edge-of-the-seat anticipation.  The story line tells of the happenings on “one dark and stormy night when a wild wind blows all sorts of oddball characters into a remote Utah tavern—a mysterious vagabond, a damsel in distress, a politician, his daughter, and her fiancé. A thief is on the loose, suspicions abound, and no one is who they seem! Everyone tries to solve the crime, which only multiplies the laughter as this melodramatic farce rolls to its madcap ending.”

Camels and the desert go together like, well, camels and the desert!  But who would have expected camels in Southern Utah where THIS desert and THIS species are hardly synonymous!  Still, if you have never been up close and personal with or ridden a camel – even if you have – the Camel Safari attraction in nearby Mesquite, NV is certain to be an experience you’ll not soon forget.  In addition to other activities, you can take a camel ride through the Nevada desert (led by a camel safari handler) with a tour of the ranch and the chance to meet “your” camel before you ride.  There is also a camel encounter where you will learn everything you ever wanted to know about these amazing mammals with long legs, a big-lipped snout and a humped back.  The one-hour event features cultural and historical information, including anatomy, personality and training.  There will also be a chance to feed, pet and bottle feed a baby camel, when available.

The 3rd annual Mesquite Hot Air Balloon Festival will be held Saturday, January 21st and Sunday, January 22nd.  But with the one-hour time change (Nevada is an hour behind Utah), you’ll still need to leave early for the event – but not ridiculously early – since the first balloon doesn’t lift off until 7:30 a.m. Nevada time.  A salute to our beloved Stars and Stripes will kickoff the festivities after which additional balloons – as many as 40 – will begin their ascent above the Virgin Valley.

If you’re not a morning person, you’ll be happy to know a balloon glow will take place in the CasaBlanca parking lot at sundown on Saturday evening offering spectators a breathtaking view of inflated balloons lighted by burners against the night sky. You might also enjoy the opportunity to chat with pilots and stroll among these colorful and colossal inflatables.

On this day trip to our neighboring community, just 35 miles to the south on the I-15 freeway, you can also enjoy traveling through the spectacular Virgin River Gorge (pay attention to the speed limit), put a few nickels in the slots or play a round of golf at any one of several beautiful courses within town limits.
