WELCOME The Vilar Performing Arts Center opened in 1998 and transformed the Beaver Creek mountain resort community by offering world-class performances one would expect to see at Carnegie Hall or the Kennedy Center. A state-of-the-art facility, our 535 seat theatre, designed for perfect acoustics and unobstructed views from every seat, we offer our audience a uniquely intimate and memorable performing arts experience. The Vilar is special. We have always known it – and are humbled and grateful to have heard this sentiment often expressed throughout the years by our audience members, as well as performers. It inspires us to continue to strive to bring compelling concerts, Broadway, dance, comedy, and classical performances to our community and guests. We hope to see you at the theatre and thank you for your support! Sincerely,

Doug Rippeto, Chairman Vilar Performing Arts Center Committee

Our Community Performance Fund (CPF) provides opportunities for aspiring local artists to perform in our beautiful venue with state-of-the-art production equipment and supported by our professional staff. We humbly endeavor to enrich the lives of our community and guests, as well as provide opportunities for younger people to discover and make the performing arts an important part of their lives.

Thank you for your interest and support. We look forward to seeing you at the theatre!

Kris Sabel, Executive Director Vilar Performing Arts Center 6


“It is so good to affirm the artistic, athletic, and musical sides of the kids, because so often in school we don’t get an opportunity to celebrate them.

CAPITOL STEPS

It’s time to put our political differences aside and enjoy the musings of The Capitol Steps – the only group in America that attempts to be funnier than Congress! No elected official, including the current resident of the White House, or those who may aspire to it, is off limits. These former congressional and senate staffers satirize today’s political headlines, and political headline makers, with humorous song and dance. Always fresh and crisp – no two performances by The Capitol Steps are alike.

NIKOLAIS DANCE THEATRE THE RIRIE-WOODBURY DANCE COMPANY PERFORMED BY

For nearly sixty years, Alwin Nikolais was modern dance’s pioneer of multimedia. His works were characterized by an interaction of light, sound, color, time, shape, objects, and moving bodies. A complete man of the theater, Mr. Nikolais was at various times called a new P. T. Barnum, a choreographic Wizard of Oz, a one-man band and a Renaissance man. Known both nationally and internationally for their commitment to preserving the dances of American treasure Alwin Nikolais, Ririe-Woodbury has the unique role of being the only dance company world-wide with the rights to perform a full evening of his extraordinary work. The program will include: Tensile Involvement (1955) • Gallery (1978)

Mechanical Organ III (1983) • Crucible (1985) some of the most renowned works

that he created during his long and successful career.

THU JAN 21 2016 7:30 PM Dance series sponsored by the VPAC Guild Performance underwritten by LaDonna & Gary Wicklund

“The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company staged a magical retrospective of multimedia innovations by the late Alwin Nikolais. Nikolais did it all, and the program unfailingly conveyed the sense of childlike wonder at the heart of his style.”

“His contribution has been so original that among other modern-dance choreographers, he is the first to be considered truly inimitable.” – The New York Times

The Minguet Quartet, founded in 1988, is one of the most internationally sought-after string quartets today and gives guest performances in all the great concert halls of the world. The passionate and intelligent interpretations of the Minguet Quartet always ensure inspiring listening experiences. The Quartet, joined by Pianist Andreas Klein will be playing a homage to Glenn Gould featuring some of his favorite pieces.

“...for the joy in sound and expression with which the ensemble makes the works speak enlivens even the smallest detail” – Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

The Minguet Quartet and Pianist Andreas Klein appear by arrangement with Marianne Schmocker Artists International, USA

German Pianist Andreas Klein has distinguished himself as a dynamic and compelling performer with his command of a wide range of tonal colors and imaginative interpretations. “With the fine Minguet String Quartet acting as a chamber orchestra, Klein gives a reading that enthralls from start to finish. There is virtuosity to spare, but in the service of a thoroughly musical conception.” – Portland Herald Press

BRYN TERFEL

The VPAC invites you to marvel at the talents of a musical superstar. One of the world’s finest bass-baritones, Bryn Terfel is no stranger to the Metropolitan Opera House, Covent Garden or La Scala, and is the winner of both Grammy® and Gramophone awards. Bryn is the recipient of Her Majesty the Queen’s medal for Music. Charming and charismatic, Terfel is equally at home in opera, music theatre and the traditional songs of his native Wales, and in this concert you will hear some of the finest operatic repertoire as well as sparkling musical theatre gems. This gala evening of favorite arias and songs will be one of the highlights of the season!

WED JAN 27 2016 6:30 PM

“Terfel is a force of nature…his voice can switch from a honeyed pianissimo to a stentorian roar without losing a trace of musicality.” – The Sunday Telegraph “A born communicator who loves words as much as music, he has reached out to audiences way beyond the rarefied temples of opera house and recital hall.” – The Times

With his great voice and towering personality, he can shrink even the largest of concert halls into a living room. 32

OUT OF BOUNDS MON FEB 1 2016

6:30 PM

(public performance)

TUE FEB 2 2016 10:00 AM & 12:30 PM

The Working Group Theatre will be in our community for a two day residency to present their original play Out of Bounds which addresses the problems of cyber-bullying. During this residency they will perform both public and school performance versions of the play as well as conduct workshops for teachers on this important subject. In the process of conducting interviews to create the show they realized that there were a lot of important voices that needed to be heard on stage: the voices of the parents, teachers and other adults struggling to help kids with bullying (and in many cases, still affected by bullying that happened in their own lives). From here, the idea to create two shows that focus on different perspectives was born. The play tells the story of 14-year-old Amy, who posts an inappropriate selfie online and is then bullied online and at school. Another important character is Madison (“Madi”) who plays the role of the bystander and is pivotal in ending the bullying towards Amy. Throughout the play are “True Stories”; these are moments when an actor will stop the play to tell a true story about their own experiences with bullying. We will have over 1,000 local students attend a 40 minute youth version of the play at 10am and 12:30pm on Tuesday February 2nd. These performances will also include a question and answer period with the company.

Out of Bounds is made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Theater Project.

42

On Monday February 1st at 6:30pm we present Out of Bounds, Public Version which is a full-length show appropriate for all ages – families are encouraged to see it together so they can talk about the play afterwards. This play is based on the same story as the youth version, however it also includes the perspectives of Amy’s mother and adults at her school.

Spirit of Freedom tells the story of Irish independence, beginning 100 years ago with the Easter Rising. Akin to Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4th of July, the Easter Rising of 1916 created the Ireland we know and love today. Through music, song, dance, and storytelling, Celtic Nights honors the struggle of a people fighting to gain freedom, independence, and true democracy. Feel the deep heartbeat in every thundering dance and listen to the soulful melodies that are the very lifeblood of their Celtic ancient traditions.

TEATRO LIRICO D’EUROPA PRESENTS

PUCCINI’S TOSCA

Puccini’s Tosca, is a high-drama production filled with secret love affairs, power-hungry villains and murder – the epitome of opera! Set in 17th century Rome and centered around a famous opera singer named Tosca, lovers weave in and out of this intensely engaging Italian romance with one passionate aria after another. Thrilling to the core, Puccini’s Tosca is emotionally enthralling to the very last note.

“Mandolin Orange has been quietly gathering local and faraway fans since its debut album was released back in 2010. The North Carolina duo’s music – laced with bluegrass, country and folk – is often wistful and contemplative without being somber, and always firmly grounded in the South.” – WNYC Soundcheck

The Vilar Center will once again host the official kickoff party for the 3rd annual WinterWonderGrass Music & Brew Festival. The evenings festivities will begin with cocktail hour in the lobby before the concert event which will feature a two (2) set performance by Mandolin Orange and The WinterWonderGrass All Stars plus special guests from Leftover Salmon and Peter Rowan. After quietly releasing three albums on their own in 2010 and 2011, the North Carolina duo Mandolin Orange (Emily Frantz and Andrew Marlin) broke quickly onto the folk and Americana scene with their acclaimed album This Side of Jordan, released by YepRoc in 2013. Since then, it’s been constant touring and life on the road, but they’ve been able to let the experience soak in enough to inform a new collection of songs. Their follow-up album, Such Jubilee, is due out on May 5. Check out our website for more specific information on the cocktail hour which will also feature local photographers displaying their best photos for a silent auction benefitting several non-profit organizations including the Eagle Valley Land Trust and E’Fec.

Now, using only three microphones and a music stand – no amps, no wires, no guests – they continue to enthrall audiences, igniting tunes that have influenced countless musicians for nearly a century. An intimate night, part revival, part history lesson, features friends who have played together for 51 years casually sharing their favorite tales and renditions of some of their favorite covers and originals, with well-known bluegrass standards emanating from Del’s acoustic rhythm guitar and Grisman’s mandolin.

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & roll. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Now, you’re invited to share an evening with the woman and her influences in the new Broadway musical, A Night with Janis Joplin. Fueled by such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby” and “Summertime,” A Night with Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences—icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of rock & roll’s greatest legends.

Star of the Broadway hit show The Illusionists (the #1 selling magic show in the world) Adam has also appeared on Good Morning America, America’s Got Talent, the Disney Channel, ABC, VH1, Rachel Ray, Travel Channel, SyFy and others. In addition to his regular TV appearances and staggering schedule of over 300 live shows each year, Adam has a vast history of philanthropic work for which US News & World Report Magazine named him ‘1 of the 10 Most Influential Youths in America’. 79


VPAC WINTER/CONCERT

APRIL 2016

Under the Streetlamp, America’s favorite vocal group with two PBS top specials and legions of faithful fans, performs an electrifying evening of classic hits from the American radio songbook. Exuding the irresistible rapport of a modern day Rat Pack, the quartet — recent leading cast members of the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys — deliver an evening of unforgettable entertainment. You’ll hear Doo-Wop, Motown, old time Rock ‘n’ Roll and all of your favorite songs from The Drifters, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, and more. Plus a “show-stopping” salute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Critics have called Under the Streetlamp “a sure-fire sellout!” All the songs are delivered in the inimitable Under the Streetlamp style, with tight harmonies and slick dance moves that will take you back to an era of sharkskin suits, flashy cars, and martini shakers.

INDIGO GIRLS The Indigo Girls (Emily Saliers and Amy Ray) have spent thirty-five years performing together, produced fifteen albums (seven gold, four platinum, and one double platinum), earned a Grammy and seven Grammy nominations, and have toured arenas, festivals, and clubs the world over. It is rare to find musicians together so long, rarer still with such profound successes. Their music lives in the hearts of generations of dedicated fans and continues to inspire young musicians. Now touring their sixteenth studio album, One Lost Day, the iconic duo continues to challenge itself creatively, over and over again, adding to a body of work that contains such contemporary classic songs as “Closer To Fine,” “Galileo,” “Least Complicated,” “Power of Two,” and “Shame on You.” On One Lost Day, the Girl’s signature harmonies are in full display: rolling, recursive, vast and hot.

LIVE IN CONCERT

RITA WILSON TUE APR 5 2016

7:30 PM Concert series co-underwritten by Peggy Fossett and Doug Rippeto

Although Rita Wilson is well known as an actress (It’s Complicated, Sleepless in Seattle, The Good Wife, & Girls) as well as a film producer (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Mamma Mia!), few may be aware that her early show biz ambitions were actually musical. She’s honed her vocal prowess with her Broadway debut in 2006 playing the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago. In 2012, she achieved her ultimate musical dream with her critically acclaimed first album titled AM/FM, which features a collection of intimate, elegant, and beautifully sung classics from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Wilson has spent the past few years working on her sophomore self-titled album which features original songs that she co-wrote with Grammy Award winners Kara DioGuardi (judge for “American Idol” & “Platinum Hit”), and Richard Marx (hits “Right Here Waiting” & “This I Promise You”) and several other acclaimed songwriters. Ms. Wilson will play our intimate venue as part of her North American tour after finishing a much-anticipated repeat residency at the famed Café Carlyle on New York City’s Upper East Side. 82

“My wife and I feel that spending time in the Vail Valley is a special treat and having the Vilar Center in our backyard is the icing on the cake. We realize how fortunate we are to not only get to see the great selection of shows the Vilar has to offer, but also be able to give back to our wonderful community at the same time. This may be the best venue in the country to see the arts in and working with Kris Sabel and his team is as enjoyable as the shows themselves.” - David Ginsberg
