June 21st marks the opening of summer performances at the Lake Dillon Theatre, beginning with ‘Xanadu’.  Running through, August 18th, Keystone Resort vacationers will want to make this a part of their itinerary!

The performance will include music by the Electric Light Orchestra.  Here is the story, according to the Lake Dillon Theatre Company:

“In the heart of Mt. Olympus, the young and beautiful muse known as Kira yearns for something more. When watching over a struggling young artist, Sonny, she descends from the heavens to find herself in the last place she possibly imagined: Venice Beach, CA in the year 1980! Kira must aid Sonny in the creation of the world’s greatest artistic endeavor since the Parthenon – THE FIRST ROLLER DISCO! Kira’s covetous sisters interfere when she falls hopelessly in love with Sonny, even though it is forbidden for immortals.”

Performances will take place from June 21- August 18 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 6:30pm, and Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm.  Tickets are priced between $27 and $30.  Please call 970.513.9386 for further information or to purchase tickets.
