About Us

 

The Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts is a division of the University of Denver.  Our tri-partite mission is:

A. to assist the Lamont School of Music and University Department of Theatre in their uses of the theatrical venues in the Newman Center,

B. to curate and present to the public a multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural performing arts series, which we call Newman Center Presents, and

C. to make venues in The Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts available for rental by community organizations.

The Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts is home to almost 500 events each year, nearly all of which are open to the public, and many of which are free performances by the outstanding students of the University’s music and theatre departments.  Over 100,000 people come to performances in our four theaters each year.  At the Newman Center people share entertaining and moving experiences with good friends in the region’s best performance venues.

The Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts is a vibrant example of the University’s commitment to excellence and public service.  No other university performing arts center is so beautiful or offers such unparalleled acoustics, comfort and sight lines.  These traits enable our students to learn in the best possible environment, challenging them to live up to the standard of what surrounds them; they allow the artists we present from all around the world to give our community the best artistic experiences possible; and they offer our clients the best facilities to achieve their own missions and performance potentials.
