Nevada Ballet Theatre and Cirque du Soleil take audiences “Beyond the Stage” for their 12th annual collaboration. Works by 16 local choreographers will feature performances by more than 60 classical ballet and contemporary dancers, aerialists and acrobats. See the showcase at 1 p.m. Sunday and Oct. 12 and 13 in Treasure Island’s Mystere Theatre. Tickets are $29 to $49 at nevadaballet.org.
Angels and Airwaves
Tom DeLonge, fire your booking agent already: The certified UFO true believer and Angels and Airwaves frontman is hitting these parts two weeks after Alienstock, a missed opportunity if ever there was one for this extraterrestrial booster. Ah well, maybe the U2-aspiring alt-rockers were just too busy, currently ensconced on their first tour in seven years. See them at 6:30 p.m. Friday at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Tickets are $35 to $65; call 702-632-7600.
Comedy lovers, rejoice! “Ghostbusters” is headed back to theaters to help cleanse your brain of that brutal 2016 reboot. (Just for the record, the movie wasn’t bad because it gender-swapped the leads. It was just plain bad.) So join Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore — seriously, what’s with these names? — as they stave off the end of days. See the 35th-anniversary celebration of “Ghostbusters” on Sunday and Thursday at Colonnade, Orleans, Rainbow, Red Rock, Sam’s Town, Santa Fe, South Point, Sunset, Town Square and Village Square.
