Beginning on Feb. 9, the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino will re-launch its Masquerade Show in the Sky with a new production company. The show will be modified with emphasis on new choreography, unique specialty acts and a more active schedule.

“We are building on one of our most spectacular entertainment attractions,” said Tom Jenkin, senior vice president and general manager of the Rio. “The show will be bigger, sexier and more geared toward adult customers.”

Under the new direction of Dick Foster productions (“Spellbound” and “Imagine”), the new Masquerade Show in the Sky will be expanded to include 30 performers (from a previous 22), with an increased schedule of performances, seven shows a day, seven days a week.

“I am thrilled to be the new producer of one of Las Vegas’ most beautiful and creative show concepts,” said Dick Foster. “The Masquerade Show in the Sky is already a huge draw for Las Vegas visitors ”¦ we will take it to the next level in 2002.”

Using state-of-the-art technology, world-class performers and top set and costume designers, the new Masquerade Show will invite guests to take part in a live celebration of Carnivale. With extravagant parades, exotic masks and costumes, the show will consist of four complete parades, each with a different theme, music and choreography.

Fully interactive, the show offers guests the chance to actually perform in a live Las Vegas production. Guest “stars” may perform in costume aboard one of the famous parade floats, a unique and memorable experience for any Las Vegas visitor.
