Super Summer Theatre in Las Vegas
Famous for bright lights, never-ending action, flash and glamour, Las Vegas is a
playground for visitors from all across the globe. With a short 15 mile drive west of the
city, another type of bright lights and action are underway.
Super Summer Theatre is celebrating its 37th season with the launch of the 2012
performance schedule. Super Summer Theatre takes place at picturesque Spring
Mountain Ranch Park, within an outdoor theatre venue set in the Blue Diamond and
Red Rock Canyon area. The park elevation is approximately 3750 feet and therefore
generally the climate is 10-15 degrees cooler than Las Vegas Valley. This area has a
long and interesting history beginning with the early settlers choosing this location due
to all of the natural springs offering an abundance of water, a rare commodity in the
middle of a dry, hot desert. With over 500 acres, a working ranch was in operation and
had various owners throughout the decades including millionaire Howard Hughes and
German actress Vera Krupp. At one point in time, it was a retreat for celebrities and
very wealthy visitors.
The elevated stage area is set amongst towering mountains, surrounded by the natural
beauty of the desert including cactus, wildflowers, red rock formations and wildlife. The
plays begin at 8:00 p.m. When gates open at 5:00 p.m. a long line of cars arrive with
attendees laden with picnic baskets, coolers, blankets and pillows. With a short ten
minute walk through a winding entrance to the park, the surrounding beauty of nature is
breathtaking as the sun begins to set behind the mountains. Seating consists of a large
flat, grassy area framed by trees and hills where people choose a spot, lay the blanket
out, unpack the picnic baskets and ice chests, and begin their feast under the stars.
The outdoor picnic opportunity in the cool mountains is one of the main attractions of
Super Summer Theatre.
Each season generally has four Broadway-style or well-known classic plays scheduled
for Super Summer Theatre. Currently “Crazy for You” is being performed with “Oliver”
following in July and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” in August. The
actors provide professional quality performances and the community provides
contributions and sponsorships to maintain the ever popular Super Summer Theatre
activities season after season.
