Vail Performing Arts Academy presents ‘70’s Fever!’ show this weekend
The 70’s Fever! show features local students performing era-defining songs
Vail Performing Arts Academy (VPAA) presents “70’s Fever!” on Nov. 13 and 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Vilar Performing Arts Center.
This production is a groovy revue of your favorite hits, from the Beatles to selections from “Hair” to disco, interspersed with some poetry by Shel Silverstein. The show features local students ages 8-16 and celebrates the academy’s 26th year offering top-quality performing arts instruction and performance opportunities.
“Our shows are back at the Vilar Center this fall, and we could not be more thrilled,” said Executive Producer and Founder Annah Scully. “After all these months of restriction, VPAA is so grateful to have our students and their audiences experience this world-class venue once again.”
It should be noted that VPAC requires proof of vaccination to enter. For students too young to receive a vaccination, masks will be required for children ages 2-11. For full requirements and to order tickets, visit VilarPAC.org.
Audience members are encouraged to wear vintage 1970’s attire, and if so inclined, to sing along to hits that include: “Let It Be,” “All You Need Is Love,” “Dancing Queen,” “Here Comes The Sun” and “I Will Survive.”
“My favorite number in this show is ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow,’ because it is such a happy and super hopeful song,” said student performer Ernst Kruger.
Owen Ray said he likes “Yellow Submarine” because “it is a really catchy tune,” and he is excited for the audience to sing along.
Sadie Solomon loves VPAA “because it connects me with so many other fellow actors from all over the valley.”
Allie Jacobs said: “I like all the 70s songs, just like my mom.”
This show is definitely one that will bring many generations together.
