It's SHOWTIME at the Denver Center for Performing Arts! 

Lucy Roucis, a Denver actor living with Parkinson's, has joined the Denver Center Theater Company's Community Relations Committee, whose mission is to increase awareness of, and access to, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts for diverse audiences. As a Committee Member Lucy is given the opportunity to host guests at the Denver Center Theater Company performances. Lucy has chosen to work with the Parkinson Association to crate a list of interested guests to host during the 2014 season.


The 2014 performance line-up is exciting: ten plays, including four world premieres. For the shows Lucy is able to host guests she will be looking to the Parkinson Association for a person living with Parkinson's and a caregiver (or two people living with Parkinson's) to be her guests FREE OF CHARGE.


Lucy will coordinate dates and times of performances with participants. The Denver Center also has fantastic audio listening devices for the hard of hearing, and can coordinate seating for wheelchair users and people unsteady on their feet.


To be added to the list of interested participants email:
