Valley Performing Arts Center continually hosts engaging, high-caliber performances from regional and touring professional companies within its elegant theater space. February treats connoisseurs to a duo of critically adored works representing a full spectrum of the arts. Emmy- and Tony-winning actor Hal Holbrook fills the Center with mirth, mighty mustache, and timeless Southern charm in his acclaimed one-man show Mark Twain Tonight!. Having inhabited the life of the legendary author since 1954, Holbrook is on the way to playing Mark Twain longer than Samuel Clemens himself. The performer sends audiences rolling down a mint-julip river with his expansive cache of witticisms and a staple inclusion of an excerpt from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet pirouettes through customs to absorb audiences in the high-kicking romance Moulin Rouge – The Ballet. A tale of love and ambition in the elixir-saturated heyday of turn-of-the-century Paris, Moulin Rouge spins a rousing and heartbreaking fable on tippy-toes that elicits ovations from American audiences and sends the ballet averse shopping for tutus. Guests can view the eye-widening spectacle from within the recently christened $125 million arts center, testing their own graceful footwork by first gliding past the lobby’s dramatic glass wall before ascending the grand staircase to their seats in the Great Hall.
