Warren Miller Performing Arts Center was alive with laughter thanks to the recent Big Sky Laugh Fest featuring comedians Kelsey Cook, Brian Simpson, Pete Lee and Missoula-raised comedian Sarah Aswell.
Even though much of the arts and entertainment world has gone dark during the pandemic, the team at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center has been determined to present a full winter season as usual.
What a great way to start the Winter season at WMPAC. We had a Broadway musical star Bobby Conte Thornton perform. He is from New York and has been coming out to Big Sky to ski since he was two years old. The songs he performed were from his new debut album "Along the Way." His songs were very fun, uplifting and heartfelt.
Yes, the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center is still having their annual winter season. In fact, there are even more events planned for this season than usual. “The caliber of performances is as high as ever, but the way we’ll experience them looks different,” said John Zirkle, executive director of WMPAC.
Masked Big Sky kids in Warren Miller Performing Arts Center (WMPAC) were greeted with a beat on an animal skin drum, a prayer spoken in ancient tongue and a man wearing a brightly colored regalia and a full headdress. That man was American Indian rap artist Christian Parrish Takes the Gun, professionally known as Supaman.
Soul-shaking crescendos, awe-inspiring solos, voices in perfect harmony, or thought-provoking theater all evoking laughter, tears or reflection. The full scope of the beauty of humanity is experienced every season at Warren Miller Performing Arts Center (WMPAC).
With creepy music playing in the background, the familiar voice of John Zirkle introduces “Inherent Danger: A Mountain Murder Series.” The new radio theater series created by the Big Sky Community Theater group over the last six weeks gives a nod to the culture of Big Sky.
Bradley Thornton strummed his guitar and sang a song co-written with artist Brett Ozment called “Back Roads and Grasshoppers”. He watched painter Heather Rapp do live painting of aspen trees as she listened to his music.
Over Labor Day weekend, the Artists Collective took over the third year of the Big Sky art event, “Art for Everyone,” and every one of the 11 participating artists sold their work, with almost all selling multiple pieces.
Mountainfilm on Tour brings a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and incredibly inspiring documentary films curated from the Mountainfilm festival held every Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado.
