About Lone Tree Arts Center
Owned and operated by the City of Lone Tree, the Lone Tree Arts Center is the premier cultural destination in the South Metro Denver area. Built by a citizen-approved bond in 2011, the Arts Center now serves over 50,000 people each year with a budget of $3.2 million. The Arts Center’s Main Stage, a 500-seat theater, hosts music, dance, and theater performances year-round. The flexible Event Hall space is an ideal hall for business meetings and small performances. The lobby serves
as an art gallery, with four curated exhibitions each year. The Terrace Theater is home to Tunes on the Terrace, a popular outdoor summer concert series.
The motto of the Arts Center is something for everybody, and its programming reflects this, particularly with its community impact programs for toddlers, school-aged children, those with autism and developmental disabilities, people experiencing early memory loss, and seniors. The Arts Center’s innovative sensory-friendly programming has become a national model for how to present performances to a population traditionally not welcomed in the theater.
The Arts Center is also home to the Lone Tree Arts Commission, which oversees the City’s art in pub...lic places program, and curates lobby art exhibitions. Events for City residents are also produced by the Arts Center, including the City’s beloved Independence Day Celebration.
The Arts Center has received numerous awards in its ten-year history, including four Henry Awards (Colorado’s version of the Tonys) for its theatrical productions; the Denver Mayor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts for pioneering sensory friendly arts programming; and the prestigious SCFD Rex Morgan Award for Innovation and Collaboration, also for its commitment to sensory friendly programming.
