July 13, 2006

    LAS VEGAS, June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The retro-cool musical production
 "Shag With A Twist" brings its groovy vibe, swinging music and
 sophisticated moves to Las Vegas beginning July 13 for a limited engagement
 at the Krave Theatre at the Aladdin.
     To view the Multimedia News Release, go to:
     Set at a 1960s Tupperware party, "Shag With A Twist" was created by
 famed visual artist Josh "Shag" Agle and choreographer Cynthia Bradley. The
 show serves up an evocative cocktail of music, color and choreography that
 brings to life the campy, hip artwork of Shag, while capturing the carefree
 spirit of a retro era where big hair, Tupperware parties and pupu platters
 were at the height of fashion. As if immersed in a cartoon come to life,
 audiences can expect a zany plot, outlandish characters and vividly-colored
 costumes and sets, all set to catchy swing music and dance. The
 retro-theming extends off the stage with showroom decor, frilly "birdbath"
 drinks, pupu platter appetizers, kitschy ushers and swinging dance routines
 that will have audience members energized and on their feet.
     Tickets for "Shag With A Twist" are now on-sale, and are available at
 the Krave box office at 888-515-SHAG or online at
 Tickets are priced at $45, VIP seating $55, plus handling fee. Performances
 of "Shag With A Twist" run Sunday to Thursday with the party starting
 nightly at midnight.
     Set in the zany-retro world of Shag, "Shag with a Twist" depicts a
 shagedelic Tupperware party hosted by the quintessential retro couple Eldon
 and Othal and their over-the-top friends; party guests include Shimmy and
 Shake, Siamese twins joined at their fabulous hair, the debonair Foot, the
 seductive Kitty, the glamorous and mysterious Slinky and the creepy Coroner
 (because all coroners love Tupperware). The party quickly takes a turn when
 someone ends up dead -- screwed by a giant corkscrew -- and it takes a
 bumbling police inspector, his pet monkey and a seance to solve the crime.
     "Shag With A Twist" recently enjoyed a successful extended run at the
 Los Angeles Theatre Center, receiving great reviews from the LA Times, LA
 Weekly, Orange County Weekly and others. It was named one of the Top 10
