The Empire Lyric Players, commonly referred to as ELP, was organized in 1958 by Holy Family High School graduates and has been a constant presence in the Denver Community Theater scene since.
Their first production was H.M.S. Pinafore, presented in 1958 at the Denver Women's Club.
Since then they have expanded their repertoire to include most of Gilbert & Sullivan's works.
ELP is committed to preserving Gilbert & Sullivan's legacy and has the distinction of being one of the longest running groups of its kind in the country.
Every year, more than 60 amateurs and professionals volunteer their time and skills in various capacities.
Members are drawn from Denver and surrounding communities, and represent many different professional, occupational, and educational backgrounds.
What all ELP have in common, though, is a sincere desire to entertain audiences.
