Family Events

Experience theatre through the eyes of a child and watch imagination come alive.

We offer plenty of family activities at The Denver Center — musicals for kids, family theatre packages and free events too! Engage your children from an early age and watch them become smarter, motivated, and more confident.

School Breaks

Known as one of the best acting schools in Denver, our Theatre Academy is open to kids ages two to 18. Acting lessons range from beginner to advanced and give students a wide range of skills — from props and painting to dance and drama. There’s something for everyone!


There is nothing like watching live theatre through the eyes of your child — unless you have to cover their eyes, plug their ears or exit stage right. While you know your child best, our tips may help you make the choice that’s right for your family when attending the theatre. As a rule of thumb, if your child sits still and pays attention to a movie in a theatre, he will likely enjoy live theatre as well.

Shows & Plays for Families

With more than 22 productions each year, there is something for all ages. Use our handy Family Guide for advisories on each play. When in doubt, give us a call at 303.893.4100 to discuss the content of the show you’re interested in. Study Guides are available to download for many of our plays; use them to discuss topics of interest with your children. We regret that children under four years of age are not allowed in the theatre.
