Next Stage NOW 

In March 2016, Mayor Hancock unveiled The Next Stage Vision Plan for the Denver Performing Arts Complex. The plan aims to re-energize the Arts Complex with new and updated venues, more public space and diverse and accessible programming.

While construction will not begin immediately, The Next Stage NOW programming ignites this exciting transformation in the present, with public performances, programming and placemaking initiatives.
