Photos: Opening night of 'As You Like It'

Photos from before and after the opening night performance of the DCPA Theatre Company's As You Like It, in The Space Theatre.

It was a bittersweet evening at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, as the death of DCPA founder Donald R. Seawell was marked before the start of all shows with remarks and a round of applause. Seawell was the first producer to bring the Royal Shakespeare Company to America.

As You Like It was followed by a traditional cast celebration in the Helen Bonfils Theatre Complex lobby. Performances run through Nov. 1.
