Saturday Night Alive is the signature benefit for the DCPA Education programs. Mark your calendars for March 7, 2015. Next year's event promises to be bigger, better and more fabulous than ever!

With marquee entertainment from Hollywood and Broadway's finest — past entertainers include Michael Bublé, Matthew Morrison, Tony Bennett, Bernadette Peters and The Temptations — Saturday Night Alive is the night out in Denver and is one of the best social events of the year.

Not only is Saturday Night Alive the place to see and be seen, but the money it pulls in every year helps make our wonderful Education department possible. Through classes, seminars and experiences, our Education team provides both children and adults a creative outlet and top-notch training in the theatre arts. Especially for young people, exposure to the arts means they perform better academically, exercise their imaginations more expansively and better express their thoughts and ideas. Your participation in Saturday Night Alive means engaged, creative kids who will become better students with the tools to succeed in life.

Saturday Night Alive attracts a sell-out crowd of 800 business and community leaders. Monthly payment plans are also available.

  • Individual ticket | $400
  • Patron ticket | $1,000 per person
  • Platinum Patron ticket | $2,500 per person
  • Corporate & Benefactor tables of 10 are available at the $6,000, $10,000 or $25,000 levels.

Saturday Night Alive includes an extensive, high-end silent auction with more than 100 items valued at $1,000 or more, including trips around the world, jewelry, art and sports memorabilia.

Our guests are also invited to purchase "surprise boxes" at $100, $200 or $300. The value of the contents of the box is always equal or more than what you give — and while you never know what you'll get, you’re sure to be delighted!
