Video, photos: DCPA, Macy's help 'Make-A-Wish' come true


Video above: The Denver Center for the Performing Arts teamed with Macy’s on National Believe Day to help bring a young woman named Carter an unforgettable experience at the Cherry Creek Shopping Center. Carter was treated to performances by DCPA actors singing some of her favorite songs, as well as dance lessons from two Denver Broncos cheerleaders and members of the Monte Vista High School pom squad.

DCPA Director of Education Allison Watrous presented Carter with prizes including autographed show posters, free DCPA Education classes and the coup de gras … an all-expenses trip to New York to see a Broadway musical.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. On average, a wish is granted every 35 minutes.
