“PETER LOOKS JUST LIKE ME!” — Student at The Snowy Day


INSPIRING

IF WE HAD ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE OUR 2017/18 SEASON, IT WOULD BE “INSPIRING.” From audiences who were mesmerized by the spectacular staging of the pre-Broadway debut of Disney’s Frozen to 19,000 tiny children who were spellbound at their very first play. From two extraordinary world premieres that we co-presented with West Coast theatres to the newly-renovated and highly-innovative Space Theatre. From a record-setting Saturday Night Alive to overwhelming support by Denver voters to help fund our upcoming Bonfils Theatre Complex renovations. From meaningful connections throughout our community such as Shakespeare performed at the library and art-in-healing activities with UCHealth to a curriculum partnership with Tiny Tots and our own Closed Captioning software development. And then…there was Hamilton! We were inspired by exceptional artistry. We were inspired by community conversations. We were inspired by educational excellence. And we were — and continue to be — inspired by the generosity of our audiences, our donors, our sponsors, our partners and our neighbors throughout the region. This Community Report illustrates our work over the past 12 months, but it also represents the engagement of individuals throughout the seven-county metro area and beyond who choose to make theatre a part of their lives. Without an audience, we are no more than actors on a stage. It is with an audience that words on a page become stories of a lifetime. Thank you for making our stories possible. Warm regards,

Janice Sinden President & CEO

Martin Semple Chairman

“THANK YOU

Artistic excellence is more than a goal at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. It is a passion. In fiscal year 2018, our four distinct lines of programming — Broadway, Theatre Company, Cabaret, OFF-Center — were made possible by the 850 individuals who worked tirelessly to present and produce 43 distinct stories. These productions explored contemporary topics, revived classic works, challenged preconceived ideas and simply entertained. Their extraordinary artistry took centerstage and was best showcased through two musicals. Our own locally-produced version of The Who’s Tommy was the culmination of our Theatre Company’s 39th season. It rocked the house…literally. It raised the roof…literally. And the neon lights put you smack dab in the middle of the Pinball Wizard’s world. With five elevators, a massive turntable, innovative three-dimensional sound design, real-time multimedia projection and a dual level set, audiences were mesmerized by the artistry of this locally-produced musical that was on par with anything you’d see in New York. Speaking of Broadway, Disney Theatrical Productions once again selected the DCPA as its trusted partner to bring a fairy tale to life on stage. Thanks to a relationship that spans 20 years and 14 productions, our audiences were chosen to be the first in the world to see Frozen, the Broadway-bound megahit musical. As one of the biggest and most reliable Broadway stops on the national touring circuit, Disney has a love affair with Denver audiences who came in droves to the seven-week run. Throughhout our season, exceptional artistry captivated more than 850,000 patrons, of which 30,000 were loyal subscribers. Collectively, they accounted for a $193.4 million economic impact and, more importantly, contributed to the increasing cultural vitality of the metro Denver region.

ACTING CLASSES

Study after study indicates that exposure to arts improves student achievement, develops creative thinkers, builds confidence and is just plain ol’ fun. In fiscal year 2018, DCPA Education decided to expand its scope with an ambitious new undertaking. In addition to its acting classes, in-school curriculum and matinees for older students, Theatre for Young Audiences is a live performance specifically designed for PreK through third grade children. The Snowy Day and Other Stories was selected to launch the new program. Written in 1962, author Ezra Jack Keats did something extraordinary. He placed an African-American boy squarely at the center of a children’s book. Fifty-five years later, Peter’s story was once more transformative. Tiny tots no higher than your knee gathered together for this entirely new experience. Some were curious. Others were unsure. And a few were so excited they wanted to climb right up on stage. Because most of our 19,000 “littles” had never seen a play or been to a theatre or seen grownups dress up and act silly. And, more importantly, some had never seen someone who looked like them at the heart of the story. Similarly, the national touring production of Hamilton garnered international acclaim for its unconventional casting. An African American George Washington, a Latin Alexander Hamilton, an Asian Aaron Burr…singing rap. “Oh no he didn’t” wasn’t a line delivered from the stage. Instead, it echoed throughout The Buell Theatre from the audience of 2,830 high school students who not only experienced a Broadway musical for the first time, but saw themselves reflected on stage. The sold-out, highly anticipated musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda transformed not just Broadway, but the American theatre. And at one very special performance, these high school students broke the fourth wall not even realizing it was there to be broken. They leaned in. They yelled out. They sat captivated as they not only witnessed a ground-breaking theatrical event, but they also learned something about our founding fathers and discovered new opportunities for themselves. That is the power of theatre and arts education. They open up new avenues to explore, instill curiosity, push boundaries and encourage us to think.

When the DCPA opened in 1979, founder Donald R. Seawell said that it was intended to be “a performing arts center for the benefit of mankind, and particularly Denver and the Rocky Mountain community.” Nearly 40 years later, the DCPA has recommitted itself to serving the needs of our community. To inform these efforts we hosted a series of community conversations to better understand the needs, obstacles and opportunities of our neighbors. More than 100 representatives of our Latinx community joined us for one such conversation. While many came to get a glimpse of our world premiere of American Mariachi, just as importantly they came because they were invited to help us understand their barriers to participation. We asked. They answered. We listened. They shared. Through tears, laughter and song we heard that our friends don’t see themselves in our theatres. But they most certainly want to be part of our story. Because of their heartwarming honesty, we recruited Latinx lobby greeters, translated the play and provided materials in Spanish. Just as we renewed and developed partnerships, so too did we continue to nurture long-standing relationships such as our 27-year partnership with Phamaly Theatre Company. Through a unique partnership with the DCPA, Phamaly — a nationally-recognized theatre company comprised entirely of persons with disabilities — performs in The Space Theatre each summer and utilizes the studios in the Newman Building for auditions and rehearsals. Phamaly company members also take classes held in our Education facilities, many of whom benefit from the Lewis E. Meyers, Jr. Scholarship program. And like any great partnership, we, in turn, gain input on accessibility issues, offer classes led by their professionals and entertain our audiences with top notch productions. In fiscal year 2018, this relationship resulted in Phamaly’s summer production of Annie. Through rehearsal space, event participation, ticket donations, and expanded accessibility services, we created our connections with the community and create opportunities to be in service to our neighbors.

The demolition was long done. The renovation was nearly complete. Transformation of the 37-year-old Space Theatre was on schedule. And then Petya hit. A computer virus shut down global transportation and our new seats were stuck. Time was of the essence. The Theatre Company’s season was set to open in weeks. Rehearsals for Macbeth were underway. Actors and artists were anxious to claim the house and become acquainted with the new lighting, sound and staging features. But the finishing touch could not be found. When finally the delivery was made, it was all hands on deck. In an incredible display of teamwork and collaboration, The Space Theatre was completed just in time for the curtain to rise. In addition to the thousands of patrons who attended productions in The Space Theatre this season, more than 60,000 guests visited our rental venues including the Seawell Ballroom, Directors Room, theatres, studios and lobbies. In order to ensure that these facilities complement the world-class productions on our stages, Denver voters approved bond funds to renovate additional spaces over the course of the next four years. We are so grateful for this outpouring of community support.

GIVING THANK YOU.

The words are so simple yet cannot be expressed enough. The ongoing support of our donors, sponsors, residents and volunteers makes everything we accomplished in fiscal year 2018 possible. A highlight of this year’s fundraising efforts was the 37th annual Saturday Night Alive. It was sizzling. It was sensational. And it was an evening of firsts. For the first time in the event’s history, we paired the fundraiser with a Broadway show. Hamilton was a sure-fire sell out. Then we grew the crowd to 1,000 and split the festivities between the Seawell Ballroom and The Buell Theatre making the evening alive with energy. And finally, the event netted a whopping $1.15 million for arts and education, which provides funding for our productions as well as programs for 144,000 students each year. Your support was — and continues to be — inspiring.

The stories on our stages spill out into our community. These aren’t stories from a script — they are stories that we write with our friends, partners and neighborhoods.

Audiences in Denver, San Diego and Seattle all welcomed the world premieres of American Mariachi and The Great Leap.. These new works, which were originally read as part of the DCPA’s Colorado New Play Summit, were developed as full co-productions which debuted in Denver before transferring to the West Coast. More than 6,000 children were enthralled by literal “surround sound” when the DCPA collaborated with Inside the Orchestra to develop curriculum and provide teaching artists to complement Tiny Tots performances in community centers throughout the region. Children from the Craniofacial Center at Children’s Hospital got a treatment of an altogether different kind when they received a shot of confidence paired with a dose of fun through hands-on theatre-inspired activities. In partnership with Denver Public Library and Riverfront Park Community Foundation, families and residents in downtown Denver were inspired by the Bard through free performances of Shakespeare in the Parking Lot at parks and public spaces. When the company that provided closed captioning service for our Theatre Company productions went out of business, our IT department stepped in. The team developed our own software for use on personal handheld devices. Plus, we introduced Spanish-language translation at select performances so that more people could enjoy live theatre. By utilizing our audiodescription devices, audiences enjoyed American Mariachi and Native Garden this season. Mayor Michael Hancock, Denver City Council and Denver citizens all voiced their public support of culture in our community through the passage of the General Obligation Bond funds. Called Elevate Denver, this overwhelming support will provide $19 million to fund the renovation of the DCPA’s Stage and Ricketson theatres.

Whether you are a Trustee, a tiny tot, an artist, an advocate, a community partner, team member or a volunteer, you make our story complete.
