Additional meeting and event spaces include the Seawell Ballroom, Director's Room, lobby and more.
The Stage Theatre
Patrons will enjoy some of the best theatre in the region with a great view from any seat in The Stage Theatre. There is not a bad seat in the house in this 13-row, 778-seat theatre. As the largest theatre in the Helen Bonfils Theatre Complex, The Stage hosts the Tony Award-winning Denver Center Theatre Company productions, including the world premieres of Tantalus, Black Elk Speaks and the Tony-nominated musical, It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues.
The Space Theatre
The Space Theatre is a 550-seat theatre in-the-round. This distinctive theatre hosts the Tony Award-winning Denver Center Theatre Company productions and often makes full use of its round and revolving stage. Patrons in The Space have gone on an imagined bus trip, seen food fights in The Miracle Worker and witnessed family members hide from Nazis in The Diary of Anne Frank. The Space also has hosted world premiere productions, including Waiting to be Invited and the Tony Award-nominated Quilters. Whatever the play, patrons will enjoy truly skilled performances and amazing technical effects that take full advantage of the Denver Center Theatre Company's expertise and The Space Theatre's seating that make guests feel part of the show.
The Ricketson Theatre
The Ricketson Theatre originally opened as a cinema showing films from 1979 until it was converted years later into a black box theatre for the Tony Award-winning Denver Center Theatre Company. This 250-seat proscenium theatre has hosted wildly successful plays including Sylvia and the world premieres of Lydia and Inana.
The Glenn R. Jones Theatre
Recently, the theatre and lobby space of The Glenn R. Jones Theatre received a beautiful renovation and was named after a former Denver Center Trustee and supporter of the arts, Glenn Jones. The 200-seat black-box theatre, hosts occasional Tony Award-winning Denver Center Theatre Company productions, as well as emergent new works from the annual Colorado New Play Summit.
