Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, October 24, 2010:  Mingo Mexico Productions announces the Puerto Vallarta debut of Mark Alan Smith, singing live at Paco’s Ranch, in a three-night engagement during the US Thanksgiving week: November 24, 25 and 26, 2010 at 8pm each night.

Mark’s LIVE vocal impressions (there is no lip sync in this show) of Cher, Bette Midler, Patti LaBelle, Judy Garland, Liza Manelli, Patsy Cline, Carol Channing, Louis Armstrong and many others leave his standing-room-only audiences begging for more.  His stage presence and vocal range make this performer a must see!

For more than 20 years, Mark Alan Smith has traveled the US and other parts of the world selling out theatres, nightclubs and showrooms.  He has performed with some of the greatest entertainers of our time including the legendary Eartha Kitt, Tiffany, The Weather Girls, Martha Wash, Thelma Houston and Sir Elton John, to name a few.  A documentary about Mark, From a Jack to a Queen, directed by Erik Hayes, ran in short film festivals in 2003, winning an “Audience Favorite Award”.

Performances will be at the all-new Paco’s Ranch (Ignacio L. Vallarta 237 next to Club Roxy) in Vallarta’s old town/southside on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, November 24, 25 and 26, 2010 at 8pm each night.  Tickets for VIP seating near the stage are 150 pesos.  General admission tickets are 100 pesos.  VIP tickets are encouraged for guaranteed seating. Groups of 6 or more qualify for discounted seating.

Tickets may be purchased at Bar Frida, Hotel Mercurio, VES Offices and online at www.MarkAlanSmith.eventbrite.com (note: there is no extra service fee online).

Opening Night, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 24 is a special show to benefit VES, Vallarta Enfrenta el Sida, A.C.  Proceeds from this performance will help VES continue their HIV education and outreach work in the Vallarta area.

Mark’s show is best suited for adults and, on most nights, contains adult humor.
