The Art of Giving

‘Tis the season and this year The Smith Center will have you checking off the arts and culture lovers on your holiday list in no time with this handy gift guide.

Tickets make great stocking stuffers. IDAHO! The Comedy Musical is the musical for just about everybody whether they love the big grand musical numbers or are there for the tongue-in-cheek humor centered around three couples, including a mail-order bride, love for their homeland, and of course, potatoes! Preview tickets start at $10

Gift cards are the gift they can’t wait to exchange. Gift cards are a universally loved gift as the recipient gets to trade it in for something they love best. Have a child on your list that may want to see The Cat in the Hat or Disney’s Beauty and the Beast or perhaps a Broadway buff that will love Riverdance, The Bridges of Madison County, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder or Cabaret? Gift them their ability to choose. Maybe they’ll even take you. Multi-denomination

Baby, it’s cold outside. Whether it’s for your child’s teacher or the cousin who likes to be cozy while watching TV, reading a book or listening to music (we’re big fans of the CD listed on this page), our soft throw will wrap them in culture. $25

Season’s readings. For the ultimate performing arts afficionado, The Smith Center coffee table book is a pictorial journey of how a desert jewel came to be. From the community leaders that shepherded the project from start to finish to the lofty Carillon Tower, each note is told through beautiful words and images. $40

Cuff links are stylish from boardroom to box tier. The Smith Center’s stylish cufflinks feature a nod to Symphony Park’s statement sculpture by Tim Bavington, Pipe Dream, which was inspired by composer Aaron Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man.” $30


Sipping in a winter wonderland. Pair a mug with a satchel of rare beans or leaves for the coffee or tea lover on your list to show how much you care. $8

Healthy holidays. Everyone knows how important it is to stay hydrated, especially here in the desert, so a Smith Center water bottle lets you gift the recipient’s physical and inspirational wellness. $15

No bows, wrapped in strings and chords. Recorded live in Cabaret Jazz for PBS, our “Frank Wildhorn & Friends Live in Las Vegas with Jane Monheit and Clint Holmes” CD features the highlights from an amazing evening of performances by Wildhorn, the multi-Grammy and Tony Award-nominated composer, whose wide range of work includes hit Broadway shows and a catalog of pop hits, along with the incomparable Jane Monheit and resident headliner, Clint Holmes. $20

Holiday gift items are for sale at The Smith Center Box Office. Gift cards and certificates can purchased online, by phone and in-person.
