Vilar Center unveils 2007-08 schedule
Highlights include B.B. King, Art Garfunkel, Gipsy Kings

September 26, 2007 — The Tony Award-winning musical “The Producers,” return performances by audience favorites the von Trapp Children and The Lettermen, folk-rock legend Art Garfunkel, Latin music sensations the Gipsy Kings and Grammy winning blues icon B.B. King highlight the 10th anniversary season of the Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC).

Tickets for the 2007-08 season at the state-of-the-art Beaver Creek theater go on sale in early November, with the exception of “The Producers,” which went on sale Monday, Sept. 24.

The announcement of the coming season comes on the heels of a record-breaking summer 2007 season at the VPAC, with sell-out shows including Kenny Loggins, Three Dog Night, Kris Kristofferson and Gordon Lightfoot, and a charity fundraiser Tuesday, Sept. 25, with Blues Traveler.

“We’ve really raised the bar on our programming in the last few years,” said VPAC’s Kris Sabel. “This winter is going to be, by far, our most ambitious season yet. And not just the big-name concert acts. This winter you’re going to see an incredible quality on the Broadway shows that come through, and our classical music series is off the charts. In all regards, this winter season is going to be a record breaking stretch of shows at the VPAC.”

Since opening its doors on Feb. 5, 1998, the VPAC has undergone many changes and has evolved into one of the most respected performing arts venues of its kind. One of the most obvious changes is its new name; slight as it is with only one additional word, it is a move that organizers hope will fit the name better to what the center does.

The full season schedule is listed below, and details can be found at Tickets go on sale in early November through the box office by calling (970) 845.TIXS (8497) or online at The Vilar Performing Arts Center is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation.
