Don’t miss Mr. Las Vegas live at the Tuacahn Amphitheatre performing a full concert for the first time ever in the state of Utah!

As part of the concert enjoy the world premiere of the “Wayne Newton – Mr. Las Vegas” documentary on the big screen set in the magnificent red rocks of Tuacahn Amphitheatre.

A lot has come and gone since Wayne Newton first set the entertainment world on fire as a precocious, big-voiced six-year-old. When Elvis Presley was still driving a truck, Wayne almost ten years his junior, had already sung before a president, toured with a Grand Ole Opry road show and released his first record.

So begins the bio of the illustrious Wayne Newton which is also where the documentary film begins. Phil Tuckett, Director of the Digital Film Program at Dixie State College, leads an experienced team as they produce the official life story of Wayne Newton.

Don’t miss this historic concert event which is made possible by DOCUTAH, the Southern Utah International Film Festival.

$39.50 – $59.50     Thursday, September 8, 2011 – 7:30 PM MDT

St. George Opera House

Located three blocks away from the Best Western Coral Hills, this building was the primary location for socials, performances, and dances held on a movable floor. The Opera House was (and still is) the social hub for Washington County and the tri-State area.

In 1861, President Brigham Young called 300 Mormon families to settle the Virgin-Santa Clara River area to grow cotton and grapes. Elder George A. Smith, for whom St. George is named, presided over southern Utah. Elder Erastus Snow and Elder Orson Pratt led the company into Dixie.

The first public building built by the settlers was the St. George Hall. It was built in 1862 as a place of recreation, entertainment and education.

In the 1930′s the Social Hall/Opera House was sold and used as a sugar beet seed cleaning plant for many years. Later, it was abandoned — not a fitting end for such a grand lady. The laughter, once gone, has now returned to this historic place.
