Aussie Heat, Las Vegas’ most hands-on male revue, will host and produce an entertainment industry showcase – the second annual Vegas Variety Show – at Opportunity Village’s Ralph & Betty Engelstad Campus on Saturday, August 24, to benefit adults with disabilities in Southern Nevada.
The event, which is open to the public, starts at 5 p.m. and is suited for all ages. The Vegas Variety Show will feature several Las Vegas Strip entertainers, including dancers from SEXXY at Westgate Las Vegas, magician David Goldrake, performers from Blond Invasion The Show, singer Emily Blick, dancer George Blick, vocal trio The Swing It! Girls, and more! Individuals from Opportunity Village’s Fine & Performing Arts program will also join Aussie Heat on stage at the Opportunity Village Engelstad Campus, located at 6050 S. Buffalo Drive.
Since debuting in Las Vegas in 2015, Aussie Heat has supported many Las Vegas not-for-profit organizations including Opportunity Village, where they teach monthly lessons to adults with intellectual disabilities and donate a portion of their nightly merchandise sales.
“We are honored to be producing and hosting Opportunity Village’s ‘Vegas Variety Show,’ for the second year,” said Adam Barr of Aussie Heat. “We will showcase a diverse collection of performers from around the world who perform nightly, right here in Las Vegas. We hope everyone comes out to join us for an incredible afternoon of entertainment, while supporting Opportunity Village’s unparalleled Fine & Performing Arts program.”
“Aussie Heat has been so gracious to Opportunity Village since first coming on a tour in 2015, and we couldn’t be more excited to co-host the second annual Vegas Variety Show with them,” said Sarah Quinn, Assistant Director of Program Services at Opportunity Village. “This year’s show will be jam-packed with a variety of Strip performers and it promises to deliver all the excitement and heart-tugging emotions. Our clients are ready!”
