This is a buy your own ticket event! Please read the following carefully. Doors Open Denver is an annual event that lets the public tour buildings that normally are not open to the public. This special tour allows the public to view behind the scenes of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Many of you have attended plays, musicals, and other performances at the DCPA and you've wandered the lobbies and main hallways and theaters. Here's the chance to discover how the magic comes together behind the curtains and backdrops and under the stages. NOTE: Tickets are $12 (plus a processing fee) and can be purchased here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dod-dcpa-behind-the-scenes-tour-tickets-67086594811. Be sure to purchase a ticket for the Saturday Insider tour and DO NOT delay! Space is limited and tickets can sell out soon. The number of tickets available as I write this (9/9/19) is 12, so that is the ultimate number of members that can attend this event. Once you purchase a ticket, you'll receive more detailed information from the DOD organization. Optional: 10:30 am - Meet for coffee/morning snack at Backstage Coffee [masked]th Street - next to the main entrance of the DCPA). After the DCPA tour, you'll have the opportunity to tour other free DOD sites nearby or in other parts of Denver.
