On Saturday, June 24, the Town of Silverthorne and Lake Dillon Theatre Company (LDTC) celebrated the opening of the Silverthorne Performing Arts Center with a day chock full of ceremonies, artful performances and entertainment attended by hundreds of Silverthorne residents and visitors alike. The day’s festivities culminated with the inaugural performance of “Sister Act,” which like all LDTC shows to date, has sold out each show, and has limited tickets available through its final performance on August 13.

In addition, LDTC’s impressive line-up in its first season coined “New Beginnings” includes the contemporary musical “Ghost” (running through Aug. 27), the military drama “Grounded” (starting Aug. 11), the hit farce “Noises Off” (starting Sept. 1), the powerful true tale “Pretty Fire” (starting Sept. 15), and the hilarious who-done-it musical comedy “Murder for Two” (starting Nov. 24).

In partnership with the Town of Silverthorne, LDTC will also produce the annual Sunset at the Summit Concert series taking place Saturday evenings at Rainbow Park. This year’s acts include Wash Park, Chris Daniels & The Kings, Hazel Miller Band, Funk Knuf, Pg. 6ix, and Ron Ivory & One on One. For full details on LDTC’s summer line-up, visit

In addition to the development of the SPAC, the Town of Silverthorne remains forward-thinking in its 50th anniversary year. The young town has accelerated downtown development in the last year including approximately $21 million of private investment in residential development, as well as the anticipated opening of Angry James Brewery and new restaurants such as Sauce on the Blue.

Most recently, the Town announced that it has selected developer Milender White to design and build the $68 million “Fourth Street Crossing,” an enduring downtown development for the heart of the Silverthorne community, and a catalyst site for further downtown development.
