Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) Chairman Martin Semple announced that two new members have been named to its Board of Trustees - Ruth Krebs, long-time DCPA patron and benefactor, and Broadway producer Brisa Trinchero.
"On behalf of the Trustees of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, we are delighted to welcome Ruth and Brisa to the Board," said Semple. "Ruth has been both a patron of the Denver Center as well a Producing Partner, whereby she and her husband have contributed financially to realize the artistic vision of our Theatre Company productions of The Who's Tommy and Anna Karenina. The Broadway industry and, by extension, every road market in the country has benefited from Brisa's passion for and investment in some of the best shows in recent history. We are very fortunate to have both of these individuals lend their guidance and support to the future of the DCPA."

She also directed her energy and financial support to numerous non-profit organizations including Africaid, Beyond Our Borders, Women's Foundation, Foothills Art Center, Friendship Bridge and World Pulse. She and her husband, Peter, have been long-time subscribers of both DCPA Broadway and Theatre Company, supporting The Who's Tommy, Anna Karenina and next season's Choir Boy. Ruth also is serving on the Capital Cabinet to help fundraise for the DCPA's capital campaign.
