Top 10 things to do in Las Vegas this week

THEATER

‘Annie’

Musical theater’s favorite orphan and amateur meteorologist — the sun’s always going to come out tomorrow with that one — is bringing her hard knock life to town. “Annie” is the next offering in the Broadway Las Vegas Series. See it at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Nov. 27, with additional shows at 2 p.m. Nov. 26 and 27, in Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center. Tickets start at $30; thesmithcenter.com.

COMEDY

Kevin Hart

It’s been four years since Kevin Hart’s previous tour, and considering the demands of his production company, various movies and venture capital firm, it’s honestly surprising he’s been able to carve out time for this one. The comedian is using this weekend’s “Reality Check” tour stop to film his next stand-up special. See him at 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the Resorts World Theatre. Tickets start at $99; tix.axs.com.

FAMILIES

‘Sesame Street Live!’

If your kids are too young to appreciate the close-up magic of Shin Lim, or are still at that age where they’re terrified of Criss Angel, there’s a new magician in town: Justin. He’ll be teaching Elmo the power of illusions in “Sesame Street Live! Make Your Magic.” See it at 2 p.m. Saturday and noon and 4 p.m. Sunday at the Thomas & Mack Center.

MUSIC

High Roller festival

It’s the musical equivalent of getting your head slammed in a car door: Canadian DJ-producer Excision traffics in dubstep at its most concussive and gut roiling. He headlines the two-night High Roller fest this weekend, which also features Virtual Riot, Barely Alive, BoogieT, Dirt Monkey and others. Get all the bass you can handle at 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. Single-day tickets are $59.99, two-day passes $99.99; dlvec.com.

MUSIC

John Fogerty

Guitar in hand, in place of silver spoon, John Fogerty still ain’t no fortunate son, though the fortunes of his fans are considerably brighter as the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman returns to town. Proud Mary keeps on burnin’ at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. Tickets start at $75; ticketmaster.com.
