DENVER — The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) has announced the cancellation of its 2020/21 DCPA Theatre Company season.

The new season from the DCPA Theatre Company, the producing regional theatre arm of DCPA, was expected to kick off Sept. 18 with a production of Angry, Raucous, and Shamelessly Gorgeous.

The company's beloved production of A Christmas Carol was scheduled to open Nov. 25, after a one-year absence, at the newly-renovated Wolf Theatre.

With these nine canceled DCPA Theatre Company productions, the DCPA has now postponed or cancelled 25 shows, two fundraisers, hundreds of classes and numerous events.
