Like the rest of the world, Big Sky’s Warren Miller Performing Arts Center has had to adapt to an entirely different world during the pandemic. For an arts venue predicated on being a community gathering place, that’s looked like inventing new ways for people to come together safely (and often virtually) for arts experiences.

The cast and crew of Behind the Curtain: Jeannette a New Musical, offered in-person and virtually at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center (WMPAC) last weekend, worked in six different time zones, including Hawaii.
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.
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).
The Warren Miller Performing Arts Center continues its threeshow series of hybrid virtual and in-person performances this Saturday, August 1 with Grammy-winning ensemble The Crossing.
The Warren Miller Performing Arts Center is embracing the fact that most everything about our world has been turned upside down lately.
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.
