Culture for the kids

Vegas isn’t really the cultural wasteland some folks think it is.

And it isn’t strictly for adults, contrary to popular belief.

It has its share of family activities that can expose the kiddies to something a little more esoteric than the backsides of scantily clad women on the rear of taxi cabs.

The Charleston Heights Arts Center, 800 S. Brush St., is featuring a live performance of “Peter and the Wolf” by the Hudson Vagabond Puppets on Wednesday July 9. Performances are at 11:30 a.m. And 2 p.m. Tickets are $3. For information call 229-6383.

Hudson Vagabond Puppets, which incorporated in 1980 as a nonprofit company, is based in Blauvelt, N.Y. The performers are professional dancers and actors presenting larger-than-life puppetry and mask programs.

“Peter and the Wolf” is a classic symphonic fairytale composed by Sergei Prokofiev in 1935 as a way of introducing orchestral instruments to children.,

The performances are presented by the city of Las Vegas Department of Leisure Services Arts & Community Events Division.
