Saturday Night Alive
March 3, 2018
Saturday Night Alive is the signature benefit for DCPA Arts and Education Programs. In 2017, more than $1,200,000 was raised, with net proceeds of over $1,000,000, helping share theatre with more than 106,000 Colorado students.

Saturday Night Alive is the signature benefit for DCPA Arts and Education programs.

The evening brings together a sellout crowd of 800 leaders from the Denver community for a memorable event. By supporting performances, classes, workshops and scholarships through one magical night, you’re giving children and teens from across the state the tools to thrive. 

Proceeds from the benefit enrich 106,000 Colorado students annually and:

  • Ensure that every Colorado child can access life-changing artistic experiences
  • Spark a love of theatre through deeply discounted student tickets
  • Provide opportunities for children as young as three through our Theatre for Young Audiences program
  • Enable on-site and in-school workshops that boost critical thinking skills and build confidence
  • Provide scholarships for classes and fieldtrips
