Welcome to Frozen! What a treat we have in store for you. You are the first — the very first in the world — to see this show before it goes to Broadway. And while that’s due in part to our longstanding relationship with Disney Theatricals, it’s also thanks to you, our committed fans. You are what has made Denver one of the top destinations for Broadway’s most exciting hits. Thank you for making this extraordinary debut in Denver possible. While you experience the subzero setting of Frozen, things are heating up for our 2017/18 season. We’re putting the final touches on the renovated Space Theatre, which opens with DCPA Theatre Company’s Macbeth. Off-Center is prepping another large-scale, off-site production — The Wild Party at Stanley Marketplace. We’ll welcome 18,000 PreK through third grade students to our DCPA Education production of The Snowy Day and Other Stories this fall. And our Broadway season officially opens with Something Rotten!, a musical comedy about the world’s first musical comedy! 2017/18 is gearing up to be a season for the record books. I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge outgoing Chairman Daniel L. Ritchie’s leadership over the past 10 years. Dan helped us weather the economic downturn, pledged half a million dollars to kick-start a Challenge Campaign, contributed to new works, underwrote seasons and led us to become the largest non-profit theatre organization in the nation. As Dan steps down, we welcome Martin Semple as Chairman of the Board. Martin’s history with the DCPA goes back to its inception. He has been our lawyer, donor, founder of Directors Society, Trustee, President of our Bonfils Foundation and loyal fan. Along with Martin, two new Trustees join the board — retired cable industry exec June Travis and Denver Chief of Staff Alan Salazar, who serves as Mayor Michael Hancock’s Ex-Officio designee. To celebrate Dan’s milestone, we invite you to recognize his contributions with one of your own. As a not-for-profit organization, your gifts help the Denver Center impact more than 105,000 students. What better way to commemorate Dan’s impact than with a gift to his two great passions — theatre and education! To give a gift in his honor, please call 303.572.4593. In closing, thanks — thanks to Dan, to Disney, to new seasons, new leaders, our extraordinary staff and volunteers, and, most important, to you. You’re the reason we do what we do…every day.

THEATRE FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES Do you cringe in the theatre because your child has ants in his pants? Pretend she’s someone else’s daughter when she dances in the aisle? Shrink down in your seat when he points and loudly asks, “Mommy, what’s that?” Well not anymore! Denver Center for the Performing Arts Education is launching its first Theatre for Young Audiences program. Designed especially for squirmers, dancers and inquisitive tykes alike, more than 18,000 PreK through third graders will be introduced to theatre — half of whom will attend with scholarship support. The Snowy Day and Other Stories by Caldecott-winning author and illustrator Ezra Jack Keats will come to life in The Conservatory Theatre (Sep 21 – Nov 18) through both public performances and extensive student matinees. “It’s our goal to welcome as many children to this interactive, highly imaginative production as possible,” said Allison Watrous, Director of DCPA Education. “When we engage these early learners in the creative arts, we elevate academic achievement, inspire future leaders and cultivate a creative workforce. Plus, it’s fun!” As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on your generosity to make programs such as Theatre for Young Audiences a success. You can support this important effort through your presence and your gifts. Learn more at denvercenter.org.

A NEW FROZEN FOR EVERY AGE By John Moore Senior Arts Journalist

“Our Frozen is really going to surprise people. This is not a replica of the movie. It’s a wholly new work of art.” — CAISSIE LEVY, “ELSA”

10

C

Caissie Levy and Patti Murin never imagined they would grow up to be princesses. “Not in a million years,” Levy said, just for emphasis. But there’s no question both Broadway stars have been living a fairy tale since they were cast to play Elsa and Anna in Disney’s Broadway-bound stage adaption of Frozen. “I am so proud to be a part of this company. I count my blessings every day,” Murin said in an exclusive interview just a week after rehearsals began for the pre-Broadway launch in Denver that runs from August 17 through October 1. “To be in this club is thrilling, to say the least,” added Levy. “And with each new day we have been working on it, that sense of giddiness and excitement has just grown deeper and deeper.” Both actors say the stage adaptation of Frozen will surprise people with its universal appeal to all audiences. “There is something for everybody,” Levy said. “We have discovered so many more layers to examine within this story that can only happen in the theatre. A lot of adult themes are explored. It’s not just for kids.” Murin added that adapting the 85-minute film into a full, two-act Broadway production with More than twice as much music gives the actors the opportunity to dig deeper into their characters’ storylines. “This is a complete show,” Murin said. “With the addition of so much new material, we have the freedom to expand and to go deeper than you are able to in a film.” To Director Michael

Grandage, it’s about emphasizing “the beating heart of the story,” she said. “I think what’s so brilliant about what the writers and Michael and (Choreographer) Rob Ashford are doing is that while they are using the film as a template, they are not trying to recreate what we saw on the screen for the stage,” Levy said. “This is not a replica of the movie. It’s a wholly new work of art. People who love the movie will want to buy a ticket to the musical because they love the movie, but once they are in the theatre they are going to have a completely new experience coming at them.” Great care has gone into the stage adaptation, said Levy, because with great opportunity also comes royal pressure. “This is not just any Disney show. It’s Frozen,” said Levy. “Elsa and Anna mean so much to so many people. The weight of that is both a huge responsibility and a huge honor.” Frozen earned $1.2 billion at cinemas worldwide and that was before it was made available for home viewing. The soundtrack became the highest-selling album of 2014, moving more than 10 million units. The New Yorker magazine said Frozen “has transcended the commercial realm and captured the culture.” Levy totally gets it. The Oscar-winning anthem “Let It Go” has become so pervasive, Levy said, that her 16-monthold is already singing the song from his diapers. So how does one go about creating a new character for the stage that comes from a film that is already so ingrained in the hearts and minds of its audience? “It’s tricky,” Levy said with a laugh. “I think the reason Elsa resonates with so many people is that her struggle to figure out how to be who she really is and accept and own that and love herself in spite of her flaws, is so relatable. She is trying to shed the pressure of other people’s expectations of her and figure out how to celebrate her flaws as part of who she is. And that is what I am trying to focus on as the actor playing Elsa. A lot of people have expectations about how she should be portrayed, but I am trying to take a page from ‘Let It Go’ and get all of that out of my head.” Frozen is the story of two princesses, one cursed with the power to control and manipulate ice. When Elsa accidentally injures her sister, it sets off a series of

betrayals, treacheries and curses that can only be healed with an act of true love. But unlike most fairytales, the heroic act that saves the day in Frozen doesn’t have anything to do with a handsome prince; it’s all about sisterhood. “It’s about women being supportive of each other,” Murin said. “Simply put: Together we are stronger.” Levy and Murin have played Elphaba and Glinda, respectively, in Wicked — just not at the same time. Like Elphaba, Elsa possesses a power she has repeatedly been told is a bad thing, and it inadvertently hurts someone she loves. Levy said it is crucial for women in the audience to see their own individual power — whatever that power might be — as a beautiful thing. “It’s all about harnessing that power and taking those things we don’t love about ourselves and trying to see the positive side of it,” Levy said. The essential message of Frozen, Murin added, is “accepting who you are — and not being afraid to be who you are.”

The purpose of the seven-week Denver run is for the creative team to explore, experiment, act and react as the musical continues its development up to its Broadway opening in 2018. “The feedback from the audiences is critically important to the production as the creative team molds the show,” said Jack Eldon, Vice President of Domestic Touring and Regional Engagements at Disney Theatrical Productions. But Levy already has a pretty good idea of the theatrical experience audiences are in for here. “I think it’s going to really surprise people,” she said. “Yes, it is going to be visually spectacular. Yes, it is going to sound incredible. Yes, it’s going to have all of the things that you want out of a Disney production. But it is also going to have so much depth and heart and soul. “Nothing about this is frothy. What you will see is every important moment in the lives of these characters. You are going to come away having experienced something unique and new, while still within the template of something you know and love already.”

During his 10 years as DCPA Chairman, Dan gave us many reasons to applaud his commitment to the arts. Bravo! 1. Dan Ritchie served as DCPA Chairman from 2007 to 2017. 2. To coincide with The Legend of Georgia McBride and our commitment to support female playwrights through the Women’s Voices Fund, Dan was transformed into “Lady Givesmore.” 3. Dan donned “Popsicle the Polar Bear” costume to support reauthorization of the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District. 4. “Slash” never looked so good as when Dan appeared alongside the World Class Rockers at Saturday Night Alive. 5. Dan was bedecked with bling when he launched our blog…as a rapper. 6. During the “Ritchie Challenge,” Dan was searching for gifts to help us reach our $1 million goal. 7. Attendees at Women with Hattitude were hard pressed were hard pressed to beat Dan in the “Best Hat” category. 8. Thank you, Dan, for your leadership over the past 10 years.

DISNEY THEATRICAL PRODUCTIONS, a division of The Walt Disney Studios, was formed in 1994 and operates under the direction of Thomas Schumacher.  Worldwide, its nine Broadway titles have been seen by over 160 million theatergoers and have been nominated for 59 Tony® Awards, winning Broadway’s highest honor 20 times.  With more than 20 productions currently produced or licensed, a Disney musical is being performed professionally somewhere on the planet virtually every hour of the day. The company’s inaugural production, Beauty and the Beast, opened in 1994. It played a remarkable 13 year run on Broadway and has been produced in 37 countries worldwide. In November 1997, Disney opened

The Lion King, which received six 1998 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Now in its 20th smash year on Broadway, it has welcomed more than 90 million visitors worldwide to date, and can currently be seen in ten productions worldwide. Having played 19 countries on every continent except Antarctica, The Lion King’s worldwide gross exceeds that of any film, Broadway show or other entertainment title in box office history. Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida opened on Broadway next, winning four 2000 Tony Awards. It was followed by Mary Poppins, a co-production with Cameron Mackintosh, which opened in London in 2004 and went on to enjoy a six year Tony-winning Broadway run. Tarzan®, which opened on Broadway in 2006, is now an international hit with an award-winning production in its 8th year in Germany.  In January 2008, The Little Mermaid opened on Broadway and was the #1-selling new musical of that year. Disney Theatrical Productions opened two critically acclaimed productions on Broadway in 2012, receiving seven Tony Awards between them: Peter and the Starcatcher, which enjoyed a two year New York run and Newsies, which concluded its North America tour in 2016, followed by an in-cinema release in 2017, which became Fathom Events’ top-grossing Broadway title. Aladdin is Disney Theatrical’s most recent Broadway hit, with a global footprint that has expanded to include productions in Tokyo, Hamburg, London, Melbourne and a tour across North America. Other successful stage ventures have included the Olivier-nominated London hit Shakespeare in Love, stage productions of Disney’s High School Musical, Der Glöckner Von Notre Dame in Berlin and King David in concert. DTP has collaborated with the country’s leading regional theatres to develop new stage titles including The Jungle Book, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Freaky Friday.

WOMEN’S VOICES FUND

In May, Chairwoman April Jones and the Denver Center Alliance threw a beautiful luncheon for 600 guests who gathered to celebrate — and support — women in theatre at Women with Hattitude. Proceeds support the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Women’s Voices Fund, a first-of-its-kind endowment designed to foster the work of women in theatre. Now sitting at $1.3 million, funds have helped produce 31 plays by women in the past 12 years. The day featured lunch by Epicurean Culinary Group, entertainment from The Secret Garden and the always-anticipated Macy’s Parade of Hats. More than $80,000 was raised for this important cause. Denver Center Alliance members plan some of Denver’s most lavish parties in support of theatre and education. To discover your role, visit denvercenter.org/alliance.

HELPING WOMEN TAKE CENTER STAGE While more than half of our fans are female, there are still too few women who are able to share their stories with an audience. The Women’s Voices Fund enables our Theatre Company to commission, workshop and produce new plays by women and is now a national model for femalecentric theatre fundraising. In its 12th year, we have raised more than $1.3 million that has enabled us to commission 20 female playwrights, hire 23 female directors and contribute to 31 world premiere plays by women.

United is pleased to serve as the official airline of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) and proudly supports its remarkable contributions to the performing arts community in Denver and beyond. Together with the DCPA, United celebrates the energy that artists and actors bring to Denver and the global stage.   But United does more than connect passengers through safe and convenient air travel, it also forges strong relationships with the people and communities it serves.   United employees also have donated thousands of hours of service to various local charities such as Food Bank of the Rockies. In June and July United hosted interns from Denver Public Schools’ CareeerConnect program to give them firsthand experience behind the scenes at an airline. Employees have assembled hygiene kits for area shelters; conducted drives for school supplies, clothes, and food; held fundraisers for everything from wild animals to breast cancer, and made dreams come true for sick kids through Make-A-Wish Foundation. United’s Volunteer Impact Grants program offers employees the opportunity to apply for cash grants for area nonprofits where they volunteer frequently and has provided thousands of dollars to local organizations since the program began.

APPLAUSE • Aug – Oct 2017 • 303.893.4100 • denvercenter.org

United employees especially love bringing smiles to hundreds of local children undergoing medical treatments through the annual holiday ‘’Fantasy Flight” trip to the North Pole and teddy bear deliveries to hospitalized children. Ben Flyin, the United Adventure Bear, brings his own passport full of travel fun and games to share with everyone he meets. For the past six years United has sponsored special matinee performances at DCPA for hundreds of local students. United enjoys the privilege of sharing the thrill of a live theatrical performance accompanied by an educational talkback with these students to expand their view of themselves and the world.  “At United, we take our role as a community partner and corporate citizen seriously, and we are proud to support the DCPA. With 80 years of service to the Mile High, City this year we also are proud of our long-standing commitment to the Denver community that thousands of employees and customers call home,” said Suzi Cabo, Managing Director of Corporate and Community Affairs. In addition to the DCPA, United is honored to support several other Colorado organizations including the Colorado Symphony, Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver Public Schools Foundation, Latin American Education Foundation, and Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum.

Many know Microsoft as the brand behind their favorite software, services and devices. But you might not know that the company has a heart as big as its brand, committed to giving back in every region it serves. In fact, an official corporate giving program has been in place since the company went public in 1986. Microsoft believes that a community is only as strong as its ability to nourish the mind and spirit through excellent, diverse and accessible programming in the visual and performing arts. It is in this vision that the company works with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA). Since 1996, Microsoft has given the DCPA more than $3 million in software to present exceptional theatre, embrace classics, create new work, and be a center for learning and civic engagement.

APPLAUSE • Aug – Oct 2017 • 303.893.4100 • denvercenter.org

Microsoft technology enables more than 300 DCPA employees to innovate and stay competitive in the industry, as they produce 23 plays, present 16 musicals and educate 105,000 students. Through its software donation, the DCPA now has the latest desktop and server operating systems to provide operational improvement and the flexibility to meet patron and user needs. “Our relationship with the DCPA is something of pride here in the greater Denver area,” said Chris Giblin. “We are delighted to continue providing donations and software to help great works of art come to life.” A significant portion of the Microsoft funding is directed through ArtsFund, a federated giving program for local corporations, foundations and individuals. In addition to the arts, Microsoft is committed to serving Denver and other local communities in four key areas: empowering youth, empowering nonprofits, empowering employees, and humanitarian and disaster response. With these pillars in mind, Microsoft donated more than $15.5 million to Colorado charities in recent years. More than 400 state employees also have utilized 3,875 volunteer hours to increase their community impact in a way above and beyond dollars and cents. Learn more about Microsoft corporate giving at www.microsoft. com/about/corporatecitizenship. Microsoft stores host regular events ranging from free educational workshops to community events with local nonprofit partners. To find your local store visit: content. microsoftstore.com.

Creating unforgettable shared experiences requires teamwork, which is why Epicurean Group proudly sponsors the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA). Epicurean’s story began more than 35 years ago when the company started humbly but with great vision and conviction. Starting as a family owned operation with a small group of team members, Epicurean Group has developed as leaders in the food service & hospitality industry. Featuring five hospitality-driven divisions, together their team strives to provide impeccable service to both their clients and community. Just as satisfying hungry foodies requires above and beyond hospitality, to impact an audience, performing arts deserve a stage. Epicurean Group applauds DCPA for its expertise in setting the stage. The DCPA provides support, logistics and a platform for the incredibly talented performance artists, troupes and companies that take the stage here in Denver. The collaborative passions for their craft and community result in both DCPA and Epicurean experiencing joy and rapport together as they attend to every detail — from first impressions to final toasts. The last dance. The last bow. After all, performing arts provide more than a good show — they give us hospitality for the soul. Thank you to the DCPA for providing us that spark of life and inspiring all of us to do the same.

Driving downtown for dinner and a show? Make parking a breeze when you locate your spot before you arrive with ParkiFi, preferred transportation partner of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. With more entertaining, retail and dining options in the downtown area, parking can be congested. Using the ParkiFi app allows theatre patrons to type in their destination to see all of the open parking spaces nearby. The service allows drivers to know exactly where the best parking is, even in the busiest parts of town, so guests can easily park and enjoy the show. While a huge benefit to individuals, businesses with dedicated parking spaces also can utilize ParkiFi’s wireless single-space sensor technology to understand occupancy, turnover, and dwell time, and to optimize pricing at each facility based on supply and demand. So whether you are a theatre patron arriving for your show on time or a company needing to manage parking inventory, visit www.parkifi.com to make your journey — from your front door to the theatre or office — worth a round of applause.
