Mission Statement

We engage and inspire through the transformative power of live theatre.

Organization History

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) was founded in 1972 as a not-for-profit organization, and is comprised of: the Tony award-winning Theatre Company, the largest resident professional theatre company between Chicago and the West Coast, producing an 8-play mainstage season which includes classic, contemporary and new work; the Broadway division, bringing the best touring Broadway shows to Denver year after year; Off-Center, presenting out-of-the-box experiences and brand-new collaborations pushing the limits of theatre; and Denver Center Academy, home to our arts in education activities.

Denver Center Academy provides extensive Arts in Education programs which are unique, innovative and standards- based for over 84,000 students each year. Current programs include Student Matinees, Dramatic Learning workshops and residencies, family productions, professional development for teachers, Shakespeare for a New Generation, and eShakespeare - an online classroom dedicated to Denver Public School teacher and student training for the annual DPS Shakespeare Festival.
