After a long day on the mountain, nothing warms the body and soul better than a performance at Beaver Creek’s Vilar Performing Arts Center, the valley’s premiere venue for music, Broadway, comedy, family entertainment and dance. Located underneath the ice skating rink, the Vilar Performing Arts Center stands at the heart of Beaver Creek, offering its collection of unique and prestigious shows to community members and guests alike. VPAC shines all year-round, but it’s during the holidays that it really sparkles, with both the elegant and festive decor and of course the fun, diverse lineup.

Continuing with their timeless tradition of presenting the holiday classic, VPAC kicks things off in the spirit of the season with Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol on December 23 at 3:30 PM and 7:30 PM. Filled with haunting special effects, heartfelt sentiment, and beloved music of the season, A Christmas Carol is the perfect family holiday event with a timeless message. After the Christmas holiday VPAC is rocking and rolling with the 80’s hit machine Starship featuring Mickey Thomas on December 26 at 7:30 PM. Mickey Thomas’s soaring, soulful vocals propelled Starship through the ‘80s and ‘90s, and he remains one of rock’s most recognizable stars with classic hits “We Built This City,” “Sara” and “Nothings Gonna Stop Us Now.” Following Starship, on December 27 at 3:00 PM, is a VPAC favorite, Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway, which features a cast of Broadway veterans singing favorites from a variety of hit shows including Les Mis, Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, CATS and many more. Finally, founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John McEuen & Friends will play a special show on December 28 at 7:30 PM.
