Welcome to DSA Theatre

The Denver Public Schools’ Denver School of the Arts (DSA) is the only comprehensive arts magnet school in the Rocky Mountain region.  Founded in 1991, the sixth through twelfth grade school provides many unique opportunities to our 900+ students to nurture their creative talents in a supportive environment designed to encourage artistic and academic excellence.

Fill the Gap Campaign

The actual cost of educating a DSA student with a comprehensive arts/academic education is $6,250, however the estimated 2017-18 DPS allocation for DSA students is $4,978 per student. So we are faced with a gap in fully funding a nationally competitive arts and academic education. This gap is $1,272 per student.

With all DSA parents coming together to Fill the Gap with a monthly, unrestricted contribution, we will be able to provide the quality educational programs in the arts and academics that our students deserve. A school-wide culture of philanthropy is essential to the success of our students, and fulfilling our mission…and together we will be stronger!

Your support of the Fill the Gap Campaign is greatly appreciated!  CLICK HERE to donate.

THANK YOU! We cannot continue to thrive without your support.

DSA Theatre Students and The Laramie Project

The Matthew Shepard Foundation set out to capture a behind-the-scenes look at “The Laramie Project” with students at the Denver School of the Arts, who performed both “The Laramie Project” and “The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later” in January 2015. Combining the perspectives of Susan Burk, original Tectonic Theater Project member Kelli Simpkins and student performers, this video aims to capture the continued relevance of the themes presented in the play and define the life-changing experience cast and community members receive by putting on this production.
