About Denver Center For The Performing Arts:
There are eight theatres within the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Each has a unique personality to match the diverse plays, musicals and shows that happen inside. Explore the stages and find your seat — before the lights go down. They are best known for the touring Broadway shows and Tony-winning theatre. The whole complex is simply amazing, theater and art surrounds you.
The complex has ample parking and some great options for making your trip to the theater perfect. There are restaurants, bars, and coffee cafes in walking distance. Due to school, work and Denver traffic; we decided to have a little mini picnic in the car before heading to our show. BUT, we surprised the kids by getting them a yummy hot cocoa for the show at the theater bar.

We had a wonderful time at the theater as a family and cannot wait to come to our next show. The complex is decorated so nicely for the holidays, it really adds to the experience. It was so fun to see everyone dressed in their holiday dresses going to all of the great shows at the DCPA.
As we were getting ready to leave the Stage Theater we saw a mailbox to mail our letters to Santa. The kids quickly wrote their letters and we mailed them. What a special treat for the kids.
