Ticket packages on sale for WMPAC’s 2020 winter season
Now that the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center is entering its seventh year, it has solidified its place as a cornerstone of the community, and people associate winter in Big Sky with world-class performances in addition to skiing and powder days. The center is pleased to announce its lineup for the 2020 winter season, for which tickets go on sale Nov. 15. For the second year, the center is offering discounted ticket packages for the first two weeks of sales. From Nov. 15 through Nov. 30, guests can buy tickets to any three of the feature winter season shows and save 20% on their total purchase. Tickets to individual shows go on sale Dec. 1.
“We wanted to give back to the community that’s supported us from the beginning,” said John Zirkle, executive director of WMPAC. “This discount package is a direct thank you to the year-round locals who want to mix up their winter routines.”
The season kicks off with magician Mike Super on Saturday, Dec. 28. Mike Super first came to WMPAC in 2017, and returns for an encore double-header performance of mind-bending illusions to launch the season. Mike Super is followed by the Five Browns, a family of piano virtuosos who play five grand pianos simultaneously, on Jan. 11, followed by stand-up comedian Mo Amer on Jan. 18. This season will also see the Peking Acrobats, a troupe of nearly 30 Chinese acrobats performing jaw-dropping feats or balance and athleticism, on Feb. 8. James Sewell Ballet, often called Big Sky’s favorite dance group, returns Feb. 22 for their annual winter performance. Nationally acclaimed theater group Aquila Theatre brings their rendition of George Orwell’s seminal novel 1984 to Big Sky on March 7. The season’s most family-friendly performance comes on March 14, when Lightwire Theater brings their unique brand of theater to WMPAC, as the actors don costumes crafted from lighting elements and spin a tale of a mad scientist and the dinosaurs he brings to life on an otherwise dark stage. The season closes on March 28 with another encore performance, this time by the Jitro Czech Girls’ Choir, one of the world’s most elite children’s choirs, who first performed at WMPAC in 2016.
“I know we say this every year, but this truly will be our best season yet,” Zirkle said. “WMPAC is all about community and bringing people together for new experiences, and we really prioritized fun this year. We can’t wait to share this with the Big Sky community.”
Discount ticket packages available Nov. 15-Nov. 30. Single tickets go on sale Dec. 1. Tickets and more information available at warrenmillerpac.org
