On the Cheap by H Scot Krause | "Lance Burton & Friends" will showcase some of Las Vegas’ most talented acts in a benefit show for The Shriners.

Tickets are only $25-$30-$35 for the special 7 p.m. show to be held this Sunday at the Monte Carlo’s Lance Burton Theatre. The acts scheduled to perform include song stylist Gabriela Versace, comedy magician Jeff Hobson, and magicians Jason Byrne, Jeff McBride, Stan Allen and Fielding West.

Proceeds raised will go to the Transportation Fund benefiting the 1,400 children who are clients of the Zelzah Shrine and can receive treatment at out-of-state hospitals after being assessed at the local clinic. Call 702-382-5554 or stop by the Zelzah Shrine Temple at 222 W. Mesquite Ave. (the corner of Mesquite & Rancho) for tickets or more information about this special show.
