Respect Musical at Act II - Thursday, Friday and Saturday

From "Someone to Watch Over Me" to "I Will Survive." It's the journey of women, told through Top-40 music in the new musical production Respect: A Musical Journey of Women. From the co-dependence of "I Will Follow Him" to the anger of "These Boots are Made for Walking," to the cynicism of "What's Love Got to Do with it," and finally to the strength of "Hero."

Respect - The Musical is on the Main Stage of Act II Entertainment with performances running until December 12, 2015. Show time for all performances is 7:00 pm.

Siente Frida Fundraiser - Friday

"Frida Kahlo turned her suffering into art, her life into colors, and its passage through the world in a chronicle of Mexico that she saw."

"Siente Frida" interactive dinner-show charity fundraiser will support Pasitos de Luz, a non-profit organization serving the special needs of children with disabilities and low-income families living in the communities of Puerto Vallarta and the new construction of Casa Connor.

Join Pasitos de Luz and Casa Connor at the Sheraton Buganvilias Puerto Vallarta on Friday, December 4 from 6:00 until 10:00 pm.

The hour includes local news; weather and information about ongoing events in and around Banderas Bay; plus, weekly interviews with experts that will make being here in Vallarta-Nayarit much better for you.
