This week’s 5 best bets for arts & culture in Las Vegas

‘Playing With Light’

Illumination is as close as the Springs Preserve, thanks to the new touring exhibit “Playing With Light,” where interactive exhibits give visitors the chance to sneak past a laser-light security block, step inside a giant telescope and more. The Origen Museum exhibit is included with admission ($4.95-$9.95 for Nevada residents, $10.95-$18.95 for nonresidents). For more information, visit www.springspreserve.org.

‘A Few Good Men’

Can you handle the truth? That is the question — one of them, anyway — in Aaron Sorkin’s tale of a young Navy lawyer who uncovers a high-level conspiracy while defending two Marines accused of murder. Magnolia Productions stages the court-martial drama at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 5 p.m. Sundays through July 3 at the Onyx Theatre, 953 E. Sahara Ave. For tickets ($20), visit www.onyxtheatre.com.

Juneteenth Festival

Celebrated every June 19, Juneteenth commemorates the June 1865 announcement of slavery’s abolition in Texas. And Las Vegas’ 16th-annual Juneteenth Festival will mark the occasion with historical storytelling — as well as entertainment, shopping, food and fun — from 6 to 9 p.m. at Lorenzi Park’s Sammy Davis Jr. Festival Plaza, 720 Twin Lakes Drive. The festival is free ; refreshments will be available for purchase . For more information, visit www.june19lv.com.

‘Ancient Rome’

With apologies to Caesars Palace, “Ancient Rome: The Empire That Shaped the World” — which continues through Sept. 11 at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, 900 Las Vegas Blvd. North — offers a more accurate excursion almost 2,000 years back in time. More than 50 displays offer hands-on experiences, from navigating the empire through ancient maps to telling time via sundial. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily; admission is $5-$10. For more information, visit www.lvnhm.org.

‘Cabaret’

Life will always be a cabaret, but the national tour of the Tony-winning “Cabaret” revival hits the road after this weekend’s shows. So what good is sitting alone in your room? Maybe this time you’ll decide to come for a holiday at The Smith Center; performances continue at 7:30 p.m. through Sunday, with 2 p.m. matinees Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $29-$129 and may be reserved at www.thesmithcenter.com.
