Miss Bluebell: Exploring the Life and Legacy of Margaret Kelly March 5

The second part of C'est Magnifique: Celebrating the 65th Anniversary of the "Lido de Paris" Arrival in Las Vegas focuses on Miss Bluebell. This event will be at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 5 in the Clark County Library. The event is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and may be limited. 

Margaret Kelly, the Irish orphan with the stunning blue eyes, began dance lessons as a child to bolster a delicate constitution, and after a brief career as a professional dancer, would gain her greatest fame as the legendary Miss Bluebell, selecting hundreds of girls for her eponymous line of dancers who epitomized grace, glamour and sex appeal in the cabaret world. Arriving in Las Vegas in 1958 as part of the production team behind the "Lido de Paris," she would leave an indelible mark on Strip entertainment.

Join a panel of family and dancers who worked with Bluebell over the years to learn more about this talented and unique woman. Moderated by Su Kim Chung, Head of Special Collections Public Services
