The Las Vegas Hilton is lining up new entertainment offerings for its Shimmer Cabaret, but a spokesman says it’s not yet ready to announce the new show lineup.
“Laugh Out Loud With The Scintas," the Buffalo, N.Y., foursome who have been performing at the Hilton since 2007, will end their run on March 14 to start a tour around the country. The Scintas -- who earlier performed at the Sahara and the Rio -- will also work on an upcoming syndicated television show and perform limited dates around the country, the Hilton said.
For more than two decades, The Scintas — brothers Frankie and Joey and sister Chrissi Scinta; along with "adopted Scinta" Pete O’Donnell — have entertained audiences nationwide.
“Laugh Out Loud with The Scintas” has its final performance scheduled for March 14. Showtimes are Monday and Tuesday, 9:30 p.m.; Wednesday, 7:30 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday, 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $39.95-$64.99, plus tax and service charge, although the Scintas said locals will be offered tickets for $20 through the end of the production.
Also ending at the Hilton’s Shimmer Cabaret is "Menopause The Musical," which debuted at the Hilton three years ago. Its final show locally is April 5, but productions of the show will continue nationwide and around the world at various venues.
Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, writer and producer Jeanie Linders created the show as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived menopause.
Tickets are $49.50 for "Menopause," which runs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m.; Saturday at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m.
