Students, young adults write, perform Halloween show

Circus-themed ‘Las Vegas Freak Show’ delves into imaginary world Oct. 27, 29-31

LAS VEGASLight and dark, dreams and reality come into play during the original, circus-themed production “Las Vegas Freakshow,” written and performed by students at Mountain View Christian Schools and other local churches. The 60-minute production is set for the stage at 7 p.m. Oct. 27, 29 and 30 and at 6 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Oct. 31 located at 3900 E. Bonanza Road in east Las Vegas.  Following the show on Oct. 31, a fall festival complete with candy, games and bounce houses, will be open to the public from 5-10 p.m. Admission to the show and festival are free. The show is not recommended for children younger than age 10.

“Have you ever imagined a world where dreams and reality are one in the same?” the Ringmaster (an MVCS graduate) says during the show. “Where light and dark coexist seamlessly? Where you are free to be and do whatever your heart desires? Well, this is your invitation! A chance to escape and be free from the boundaries of this world.”

Students have been working on all aspects of the production – from writing the script to perfecting their lines – since August. The cast is made up of seven junior high and high school students, young adults and many extras who all had a hand in the production of “Las Vegas Freakshow.” Many of the characters are unique and have elaborate costume and makeup presentation. 

Mountain View Christian Schools is a private, faith-based preschool-12th grade school that has been serving the Las Vegas Valley for more than 25 years. As part of the Champion Center Las Vegas, the school is focused on educating future Christian leaders.
