American Spirit

Date & Time

Sunday, September 18, 2011 at 4 PM

Join the multi-talented cast of 10 as they take you on a powerful journey through the events, and introduce you to the people, that define the American Spirit! From the birth of our nation to a spectacular 4th of July Celebration, you don’t have to look far to see, hear, and feel the true spirit of our great land. As seen through the eyes of the well meaning, but slightly befuddled Mayor of Your HomeTown U.S.A., it’s a powerful 90 minute song, dance and storytelling journey through parade routes and battlefields; town halls and concert halls. Witness moments of the American Revolution mixed with the industrial revolution. Hear Prohibition Jazz grow out of Civil War Spirituals. And enjoy America’s heroes on the battlefield and ball field rubbing elbows with entertainers and politicians alike! Iconic video images are surrounded by the sounds and speeches of our Nation’s history. It’s the music, moments and memories that make us proud to be Americans.
Take Me Home: The Music of John Denver

Date & Time

Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 7 PM

The songs are timeless. The resemblance is remarkable. The message, still relevant. With multi-platinum hits like “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s Song” and “Calypso,” John Denver captured a worldwide audience through his songs of care and concern. Today his music comes to life though Jim Curry’s ultimate tribute. His is the first and only full-length John Denver tribute in Las Vegas, and his shows throughout North America and on the Holland America Cruise Line are testament to John Denver’s lasting appeal. Jim’s powerful performances (accompanied by guitar/mandolin, flute, keyboard, bass and drums) bring John Denver’s greatest songs and feelings to life, blending the images of our natural earth with a love for each other. With his compelling voice and heartfelt words, Jim brings a welcome rebirth to the enduring music of America’s troubadour.
