Friends, we at The Denver Actors Fund believe in building community while building funds. So most of our events are performative in nature so that you have a good time while helping a good cause. Here are some of the fun events we have in the works.

COMING SEPTEMBER 25: MISCAST 2017
“Miscast,” the major annual fundraiser produced and presented by the Denver Actors Fund, is an opportunity for local performers to sing songs and act out scenes they would never … ever! … get cast to perform on any legit stage. Think gender-bending, race-bending and age-bending. Odd couples and mixed groups. Wrong is oh so right. “Miscast” has evolved over the years into one of the biggest nights of the year in the Colorado theatre community – and it is a really good show. The video below showing one 2016 number has now been viewed more than 400,000 times online. “Miscast2017” will be held Sept. 25 at the Town Hall Arts Center, and it will sell out, so reserve your seats now. Tickets only $20. BUY ONLINE
