LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- There is more fire fallout to report tonight.

There is concern from businesses and groups that the smoke and ash will drive people away from planned events here in the valley.

News 3's Reed Cowan has the story of one group that says even though they're not in the path of the fire, they're feeling the heat.

One of the valley's most popular draws is the Super Summer Theatre at Red Rock Canyon.

They said they're getting a lot of calls from people wondering if the show will go on.

Thee is fire on the mountain and fear in a valley where thousands of southern Nevadans go for entertainment

Red Rock's Super Summer Theatre’s newest show was set to open Wednesday night but fire fears by ticket holders threaten to deliver sparse crowds.

The fire is not anywhere near where the lights will go up. But the smoke could be, say air quality experts and may be the reason why many people are calling to ask that their tickets be changed to another night.

"They just call and say we can’t come…we cant blame them…many bought these tickets in May," said Adrienne O’Donoghue with the Super Summer Theatre.

This is just one more potential economic impact of the Carpenter One fire on the people who call this valley home. Tickets this year pave the way for future years.

Come fire, smoke or rain---the curtain will rise on "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" while show organizers really try to get the word out that the show will go on..
