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!
