The Desert Rose Playhouse, the Valley’s live stage company serving the LGBT community, will present the premier of a new gay musical revue VITAMIN Q by Eric Lane Barnes opening Friday, June 19, 2015 for a six-week run.
VITAMIN Q is a new collection of Barnes’s “trunk songs” that take a clever and occasionally moving look at many aspects of gay life. Songs like “I Don’t Like Showtunes!”, “Drama Queen”, “Tomorrow Never Comes”, “The Caffeine Overload Polka”, and a doo-wop salute to unrequited love “I’m Available” are featured in the revue to be performed by a five-man company.
Children ages 4 through 12 can explore natural habitats, encounter exotic animals, discover scientific concepts and have the most fun under the desert sun. Summer ZooCamp consists of six weekly sessions. Each themed class focuses on an entertaining and educational topic, geared to the specific age level at which it's offered. ZooCampers will be excited by the special behind-the-scenes tours and animal encounters you can only find at The Living Desert!
Summer ZooCamp weekly sessions are offered for ages 4-5, 6-7, 8-9 and 10-12. These sessions run Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Summer ZooCampers need to come equipped for outdoor activity with a snack, lunch and water bottle each day.
