The town of Silverthorne and Lake Dillon Theatre Company (LDTC) invite community residents to attend a ground-breaking celebration for the new Performing Arts Center on April 23 from 4–5:30 p.m. at the Pavilion Lawn in downtown Silverthorne.

“This ground-breaking event is a great opportunity to educate residents about the new Performing Arts Center and LDTC’s move to Silverthorne,” said Joanne Cook, Silverthorne recreation and culture director, in a statement. “In addition, it’s a great way to involve those who live, work and play here in building a shared culture that’s rooted in the arts.”

True to the event’s theme, local artists will provide musical entertainment throughout. Event performers include Angie Janzen, Mike Huberman, the Folklorico Dancers, Kelly Renoux, Nina Waters and Len Rhodes. There will also be a special performance of “Tomorrow” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by LDTC Youth performer Mikaela Clark. Guests will also enjoy root beer floats and other sweet treats during the event. The ceremonial shovels in the ground and speeches from Silverthorne Mayor Bruce Butler and LDTC staff, Josh Blanchard and Chris Alleman, will happen at approximately 4:50 p.m.

“The Lake Dillon Theatre Company could not be more proud to collaborate with the town of Silverthorne on the new Performing Arts Center,” Alleman said in a statement. “The groundbreaking celebration is a wonderful kick-off event to share that excitement with the entire community.”

Announced last year, the new Performing Arts Center is a cooperation between the town of Silverthorne and the LDTC created to further catalyze a vibrant downtown Silverthorne through arts and culture offerings. Last Wednesday, April 13, Silverthorne Town Council passed an Interim Funding Agreement as well as a resolution awarding the construction contract to A&P Construction Firm. The Center is projected to open in March 2017. In the meantime, the LDTC has relocated to a temporary space at the Green Village in The Outlets at Silverthorne with its spring season performances underway.
