Tucker “Showman,” Jackrabbit Joe – “Mountain Man Extraordinaire” – Sheriff Buckaroo Bob and Sure Shot Shirley – star of the rodeo circuit. The western characters’ storytelling is part of the kids’ day in Children’s Ski and Snowboard School at Beaver Creek Mountain. The dinner theater will feature a fast moving show with cowboy poetry, wacky western wisdom, mini western melodramas and fractured tales of the old west. There will also be plenty of cowboy music. All meals are served family style with a choice of entree and endless sides. The kids, and adults, can finish their meal at the “Build Your Own Sundae Buffet.” There will be weekly shows throughout February and March. Call 845-5456 for information and reservations.
