      Rebel Recharge - The History and Legacy of the Las Vegas Showgirl

      Program Description: The fabulous Las Vegas production shows which brought the showgirl to life are a thing of the past, but she still remains as an iconic symbol of Las Vegas. Our city's entertainment history is closely intertwined with the history of these feathered and sequined beauties. They recall a time when elegant dinner evenings in the showrooms of the Dunes, Stardust, Tropicana and MGM Grand were a regular occurrence. Learn about the glamorous past of the Las Vegas Strip through historic photos and documents drawn from the UNLV Libraries Special Collections & Archives. Join us to hear about the real-life experiences of performer Nancy Hardy who danced in shows such as the Lido de Paris, Folies Bergere, and Jubilee! during her nearly 25-year career as a Las Vegas showgirl

      Presenter: Su Kim Chung, Head of Special Collections Public Services
