Denver Center Theatre Company
Denver Center Theatre Company is a division of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and is the principal resident professional theater in the Rocky Mountain region. Its mission is fourfold: to create theater that excites, engages, and inspires audiences throughout Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region; to produce an eclectic season of 10 to 12 productions that reflect both the diversity of its community and the challenges facing this country; to support a resident company of the highest caliber providing opportunities for leading professionals from across the United States; and to foster the future of the American theater through the commissioning, development, and production of new plays and musicals that add to the American canon. Programs in Colorado schools include Dramatic Learning residencies, student matinees, Young Playwrights, talkbacks, and perspectives offered on-site.
For Shakespeare in American Communities, Denver Center Theatre Company will present student matinees of Hamlet (January to February 2014) directed by Artistic Director Ken Thompson. The company will provide related educational activities, including teacher training, workshops, post-show discussions, and a study guide. They anticipate reaching 11 schools in Colorado.
