CIMARRON NIGHTCLUB - DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, A TRIBUTE TO NEIL DIAMOND
MATINEE ADDED!

 Due to the quick sell-out of the three evening performances for this popular show, we're adding a Matinee performance. This will be the first time we've done a Matinee at the Nightclub and of course the room cannot be darkened. But the show is a high-energy professionally choreographed production paying homage to Neil Diamond. Neil recently announced his retirement from touring, but his legend will live on with this great tribute show. With a back-up band and accompanying video show, Greg Ansel truly brings the songs to life. It's a hand-clapping good time and a wonderful opportunity for those who don't drive at night to experience a Nightclub show. Tickets may be purchased online at www.scgrandmusicclub.com or www.grandinfo.com. Also available at the Activities Desk at Sonoran (open M-F; 9am to 4 pm)

SCG Drama & Comedy Club presents...

"Suite Surrender"

a farce by Michael McKeever

OCTOBER 18-21, Evenings at 7:00 P.M., Sunday Matinee at 3:00 P.M.

The Year- 1942.

The Event- "A Night of a Thousand Stars", a benefit to support our soldiers in WWII. The luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel is under siege as two of Hollywood's biggest divas vie for the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and one pampered lap dog round out this fall-down-laughing riot of a comedy. An all-out love note to those wonderful farces of the 30's and 40's.

SOUTHERN ARIZONA MISSIONS & CHURCHES

Early Spanish missionaries built adobe chapels and missions throughout Mexico, which at the time included San Xavier del Bac, once part of the
chain of churches that stretched from northern Mexico to the western United States. This amazing structure is considered the “Sistine Chapel
of North America” for the intricate paintings on the walls and ceiling. It is still a Catholic parish serving the Tohono O’odham community for whom it was established in the late 1600’s. Today San Xavier del Bac hosts daily nonsectarian tours led by well-trained docents, each with their own unique perspective on this Mission. After this fascinating
tour of San Xavier del Bac, we’ll head south to Tumacacori for lunch on self, at Wisdom Café. Owned and operated by four generations of the
Wisdom family, serving great Mexican food that is steeped in tradition, the Wisdom Café has been a popular tourist destination for decades. After lunch we’ll explore the Tumacacori National Historic Park, home to San Jose de Tumacacori. This massive and haunting ruin was originally built around 1800 by Franciscan priests. It was abandoned before completion, and later gutted by Apache warriors and various fortune hunters. Today San Jose de Tumacacori serves as a fascinating reminder of early American and Spanish history. From here, we’ll head into to the village of Tubac, home to lovely and historic St. Ann’s Catholic Church, a place of continuous worship for over 250 years. Southern Arizona is rich with historic churches and missions—some
elaborately constructed with imported materials during the mining boom era, are still in use. This fascinating tour fills quickly—don’t wait to call in your reservations! Times and pick-up locations subject to change per tour vendor. You will be contacted 2-3 days prior to your tour with definite pick up times.

"The Game's Afoot"

Written by Ken Ludwig

November 29, 30, December 1 at 7pm & December 2 at 3pm

It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, tyhe festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it's up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona ofhis beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

LAKE HAVASU CITY FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS & BOAT PARADE


Day One: Kick off your holiday season with this spirited trip to Lake Havasu City! We’ll head northwest with a stop for coffee & goodies, on our way to Bouse, AZ, where we’ll enjoy lunch on self. Back on the bus, we’ll explore a remarkable stretch of western Arizona as we make our way to Lake Havasu City. We’ll check into the Hampton Inn—the most beautiful hotel in town, after a recent nine-million-dollar renovation. We’ll take time for a refresh before heading to Cha-Bones, voted one of the top 10 restaurants in the state of Arizona. We’ll arrive at Cha-Bones in plenty of time to enjoy their fabulous Happy Hour, on self. Take advantage of specially-priced cocktails, beer and wine, along with half-price appetizers – TAPAS!—20 different Spanish inspired small-plates. Make it a meal or order an entrée from a menu that offers seafood brought in daily, hand-trimmed Angus beef and handcrafted scratch pizzas. Later we’ll stroll under the world-famous London Bridge and explore the walkway to enjoy 500,000 lights and settle in to experience the 36th Annual Boat Parade of Lights, repeatedly awarded one of the top 100 events in the US. Approximately 50 wildly decorated boats will cruise through the Bridgewater Channel, delighting the cozily dressed crowds along the shoreline.
Day Two: Breakfast is included at the hotel, then it’s bags out and we’re headed for Oatman, a living ghost town on old Route 66. This crazy town began as a mining tent camp, over 100 years ago, but quickly became a flourishing gold mining center in 1915, when two miners struck a ten-million-dollar gold find! Mining in Oatman was short lived, but Oatman survived by catering to travelers on “The Mother Road.” The town nearly died when the route became what is now Interstate 40. Today tame burros roam the streets, descendants of the early mining burros. Make sure to check out the Oatman Hotel, where Clark Gable and Carol Lombard honeymooned in 1939. Later we’ll head for home with a stop for lunch on self, and plenty of great sightseeing along the way. This affordable holiday tour offers so much – don’t miss it!

TITAN MISSILE MUSEUM


Uncover the secrets of America’s largest nuclear weapon! At the Titan Missile Museum near Tucson, visitors journey through time to stand on the front line of the Cold War. This preserved Titan II missile site, officially known as complex 571-7, is all that remains of the 54 Titan II missile sites that were on alert across the United States from 1963 to 1987. This one-of-a-kind museum gives visitors a rare look at the technology used by the United States to deter nuclear war. What was once one of America’s most top-secret places is now a National Historic Landmark, fulfilling its new mission of bringing Cold War history to life for millions of visitors from around the world. We’ll descend 35 feet into the underground missile complex, on a one-hour guided tour of the launch control center and experience a simulated launch of the missile. Then we’ll journey down the cableway to level 2 of the missile silo to get an up-close look at the missile itself. Finally, we’ll stand on top of the launch duct and look down on the Titan II missile from above. Visitors to the museum must be able to ascend and descend 55 stairs. After the tour, we’ll head to Tubac, a charming and historic artist’s community, where we’ll enjoy lunch on self, with several wonderful restaurants to choose from. We’ll also take some time to explore Tubac before heading for home. Times and pick-up locations subject to change per tour vendor.

If Mumford and Sons hung out with the Dixie Chicks ‘plus one’ at an Eagles Concert, you’d have the Redhead Express. What genre is Redhead Express? Every band is asked the same question, meant to define them, categorize them, to place them in a small box, neatly beside other similar musicians. Certainly their early study of mountain music along with their acoustic instruments suggests an American Folk influence. However, vocal influences are quite varied, reaching into Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop and both early and modern Country Music. Some refer to Redhead Express as Folk-Rock or Folk-Pop while others like the Alternative Country label.
