“We have enjoyed the DCPA since we moved to the Denver area more than 20 years ago. We find the performances inspiring, enlightening and thoroughly entertaining. What we have received from the performances in our 10-plus years as subscribers is priceless, and it is our pleasure to give back as we realize the theatre cannot survive on ticket sales alone." — Mike & Elisa Ferrari
