The Bug Performance and Media Art Center (aka “The Bug Theatre”) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit multimedia venue in Northwest Denver. We feature live theatre, independent film, standup comedy, dance, music, and every other conceivable art form or live event, and keep both our ticket prices and rental rates well below industry standards, as we believe in the importance of making the arts accessible to everyone in our community. As such, our organization’s ability to continue to operate is due in large part to the generous support of local and regional grantmakers, individual donors who believe in our mission, and fiscal and in-kind contributions from businesses and corporations.


Programming at The Bug Theatre is made possible in part thanks to the generous support of the following:
