Not Your Father's Library Card - How to Save 15% on Select Performances at the DCPA

A library card recently sold at auction for $7500.00. It bore the signature, the earliest known signature, in fact, of eighth-grader Elvis Aaron Presley, and was issued by Humes High School in Memphis in 1948. The King of Rock and Roll had borrowed a copy of "The Courageous Heart: A Life of Andrew Jackson for Young Readers."

Although your library card probably won't fetch such a price at auction, there are lots of ways it will save you money, the latest being a 15% discount for Broadway and Theater Company productions at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Actually, all you have to do is type in "DPL18" as the promo code when you buy your tickets.

In addition:

  • There are some restrictions on certain dates, shows, and availability, but generally the discount will be offered
  • Tickets are available by email, or held at will-call for pickup one hour before the performance
  • All sales are final; no refunds or exchanges
  • Tickets must be purchased online to receive the discount

And if you want to impress your fellow theater-goers with insightful observations, the library has some handy resources to prepare you for any performance. We have thousands of plays, musical scores, reviews of productions from the Denver Post and New York Times, as well as literary criticism and playwright bios from the Literature Resource Center.

Wow... this is super awesome to know! And typing DPL in the promo code is so easy. I wish I could go back and get the retro-savings. Oh well - this is super to know and very cool!
