Also going on in the coming week:

Playwright’s Festival

Las Vegas proves fertile dramatic soil at Nevada Conservatory Theatre’s Organic, Home Grown Playwright’s Festival on Saturday: the musical “Bright Side” (2:30 p.m.), about a macho man facing breast cancer; “Titus Andronicus Jr.” (5:30 p.m.), in which kids reenact Shakespeare’s bloodiest play; and “Invention” (7:45 p.m.), Brandon Burk’s solo show about his quest for redemption after killing a man in a drunk driving crash. The free festival, at UNLV’s Paul Harris Theatre, kicks off at 10 a.m. with a writing workshop, followed by a 1:15 p.m. discussion of musicals led by composer and “Ka” conductor Richard Oberacker, whose “Bandstand” is Broadway-bound this fall.

Engelbert and Yanni

Audiences are on a first-name basis with two Strip veterans who make themselves at home in The Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall in the coming days. First up: crooner Engelbert Humperdinck, who returns to The Smith Center at 7:30 p.m. Saturday ($29-$85). And at 7:30 p.m. Monday, composer and keyboard whiz Yanni leads his orchestra in new versions of old favorites at 7:30 p.m. Monday ($29-$99). For tickets, visit www.thesmithcenter.com

Mahalo Celebration Luau

There are eight Hawaiian islands — unless you count Las Vegas, which the Ninth Island Cultural Club of Las Vegas definitely does. That explains the group’s Celebration Luau, from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Sammy Davis Jr. Festival Plaza in Lorenzi Park, 720 Twin Lakes Drive. The all-ages event includes a dinner buffet (starting at 6:30 p.m.), plus entertainment starting at 7 p.m. For tickets ($30-$40) and more information, call 702-992-0837 or go online to www.9thiccoflv.org

‘Boheme’ in Brooklyn

Giacomo Puccini’s timeless “La Boheme” gets an update this weekend thanks to UNLV Opera, as a jewelry designer and a blogger join a group of starving artists — a singer, a painter, a guitarist and a photographer — living, and loving, in present-day Brooklyn. “La Boheme” continues at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday in UNLV’s Judy Bayley Theatre; for tickets ($5-$25), call 702-895-2787 or visit www.unlv.edu/pac
