In Eagle County, more than 8,000 students each year are given invaluable exposure to the performing arts through the Vilar Performing Arts Center’s S.T.A.R.S. programming (Support The Arts Reaching Students), providing the basis for a life of enjoyment and understanding of a wide array of performing arts disciplines, often for youth who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity. Pat and Pete Frechette were instrumental in the creation of the S.T.A.R.S. program, which was founded in 1998 and has provided thousands of Eagle County youth with free or affordable opportunities to experience age-appropriate performing arts, often via school field trips to matinee shows. The S.T.A.R.S. program brings approximately 20 shows a year to the VPAC. The programming is educational and entertaining, oftentimes integrating with teachers’ lesson plans and sometimes providing a platform for discussion of pertinent childhood issues such as bullying, cultural awareness or how to deal with challenging homework.
