The Denver Center
Our mission: present exceptional theatre, embrace classics, create new work, and be a center for learning and civic engagement.
The Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ history intertwines with that of the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Both were ideas that blossomed from an original dream shared by philanthropist, Denver Post owner and occasional-actress Helen G. Bonfils and Wall Street lawyer and Broadway producer Donald R. Seawell.
As a non-profit theatre organization, we entertain more than 750,000 people throughout the American West.
With new works being commissioned and developed under Denver Center Theatre Company Artistic Director Kent Thompson, musical collaborations being orchestrated by Denver Center Attractions Executive Director and Denver Center President Randy Weeks, and new ideas being envisioned by Chairman Daniel L. Ritchie, The Denver Center for the Performing Arts is ready to engage, excite and inspire future generations of theatre lovers.
