Henderson Pavilion celebrates ten years

The spring season is ready to kick off at our Henderson Pavilion! Celebrate with us, our tenth anniversary, as we present a line up that is sure to bring the Phantom and Princess out of every boy and girl!

The 2012 spring line up is packed with some oldies but extreme goodies, as well as newbies that are certain to make you cheer for more! We are excited to bring back memorable performances that had all of our Pavilion loyalists spreading the word for months such as the Symphonic Rock Show, reuniting Brody Dolyniuk with the legendary Las Vegas rock entourage Yellow Brick Road, as well as Charlie Chaplin movie night featuring the Henderson Symphony Orchestra, this time featuring the hit Chaplin flick Modern Times.
New to our Pavilion stage will be shows such as Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, as depicted by the Las Vegas Shakespeare Company; the same performers responsible for bringing us the ever-popular and memorable rendition of the classic Wizard of Oz last May. Vox Lumiere comes to Nevada for the first time and brings us their take of The Phantom of the Opera, intertwining a spectacular stage show, award-winning actors and music to this classical tale. And the Disney hit Imagination Movers will rock the house in October with their Rock-O-Matic tour, in which also includes a VIP ticket option including an exclusive performance, healthy snacks and meet and greet opportunities!

Season tickets are available for the first time, allowing you to purchase multiple shows at a discounted rate. Select the same seat for every show (based upon availability) or select a different spot per show by visiting the Pavilion box office in person or dialing in. Either way, there isn’t a bad seat in the house!

We hope to see you all here as the season kicks off with the Symphonic Rock Show, April 7, whether you’re a ten-year loyal or a newcomer. Come and see what the buzz is all about, as the Henderson Pavilion kicks off its tenth season with rockin’ symphonies, a melody of comedy and performances that will move your imagination. We’re back and we hope to have you all back with us as well. Tell a friend!

Please visit, the Henderson Pavilion box office in person at 200 S. Green Valley Parkway in Henderson or by calling 267-4TIX to get your tickets to these exciting shows, or to inquire about other upcoming performances.

Shakespeare in the Park returns with A Mid Summer Night's Dream

The Shakespeare in the Park series has returned as The City of Henderson hosts The Las Vegas Shakespeare Company’s take on A Mid Summer Night’s Dream:  Four Parks, Four Weekends, For You!

A Mid Summer Night’s Dream is one of William Shakespeare’s most notable plays, and to see it brought to life by director Dan Decker and his talented cast and crew is sure to be a treat.  Stepping outside of the Shakespeare arena, the company brought a memorable and astounding performance to the Henderson Pavilion with their take on the classic; The Wizard of Oz, back in May 2011.  A lot of the actors in that performance have returned to partake in this Shakespeare classic and promise to bring a performance that is certain to be just as powerful.  You can learn more about the Las Vegas Shakespeare Company by visiting their website.

You can catch performances at four different Henderson parks, the first four Saturdays of October, at the listed locations:
Sonata Park:  October 1st
Discovery Park:  October 8th
Lake Las Vegas:  October 15th
River Mountain Park:  October 22nd

The City of Henderson’s Department of Cultural Arts and Tourism is proud to promote this annual event and we hope that Henderson residents as well as Las Vegas and Boulder City residents make one of these amazing four performances and enjoy a night of Shakespeare, the talents of the Las Vegas Shakespeare Company and a relaxing performance under the stars of our beautiful fall weather that is upon us.  Picnics and blankets are welcome and all performances are complimentary.  We are certain you will enjoy your time and the show!
