Introducing DCPA's groundbreaking News Center media outlet

newscentertop800

There’s a new media outlet in town, and it is our very own. Check out our News Center on the new www.DenverCenter.Org. We call it Denver CenterStage. It has been in the works for a year — and we think it is already one of the most active and vibrant sources for news and information about local theatre you will find anywhere on the web.

This is a groundbreaking new professional journalism initiative headed by respected local arts journalist John Moore and Video Producer David Lenk, who are bringing you fresh theatre stories every day from the Denver Center and throughout the Colorado theatre community using words, photos, audio and video.

Our News Center is a cornerstone of the new DenverCenter.Org. It’s another major reason to visit our new web site — ­ and stay awhile. With stories being added several times a day, we hope you visit often. For those of you who have followed our coverage while the News Center has been under construction for the past year, the previous MyDenverCenter.Org URL will now take you to our new home.

STAY INFORMED
The DCPA hired John Moore, the former longtime theatre critic at The Denver Post, to report news, tell feature stories and keep readers informed about all things happening not only here at the DCPA, but in the Colorado theatre community and around the nation. Working alongside award-winning Video Producer David Lenk, our team will make sure you know about all the varied happenings at one of the nation’s leading arts centers, and in the neighboring community.

SORT YOUR NEWS HOW YOU WANT IT SORTED
At Denver CenterStage, you will find our content neatly organized according to your interests. Easily find coverage specific to our Theatre Company, Broadway or Education divisions. Or go straight to our coverage of Other Theatres or the Community. For now, with so much attention on our season-opening staging of The Unsinkable Molly Brown, we’ve created a temporary tab to make it as easy as possible for you to find all of our coverage of the show to date in one place. We also have a highly efficient search engine located at the top of any page on our new web site. Just enter the show, actor or term of interest, and your selection should pop right up.

MEET THE CAST VIDEOS

One of our most popular innovations is our “Meet the Cast” video series. In the past year, we have produced more than 60 brief video introductions that allow you get to know our actors in a much more personal way than ever before. These videos are posted individually on the News Center, but they are also available on our unique “Cast and Crew” pages that we produce for every show we stage. To find them, click “Shows and Tickets,” choose your show and then click “Cast & Crew.”  To play the video featured above, just click here and enjoy.
