The Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek has seven shows remaining in the month of January (and over a dozen on the books for February). With winter in full swing, performances at the intimate theater in the heart of Beaver Creek are the perfect complement to a day on the slopes or an evening in the village.
Coming this week, three shows at VPAC. From the kilted Maxwell Quartet performing Scottish folk music on Sunday January 16, to the Dance Theater of Harlem bringing their professional touring company to the stage on Tuesday January 18, and The Simon & Garfunkel Story in concert on Friday January 18. 21 – there’s something for everyone this week.
