Our History

Founded in 1991, the DPRCA is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing arts and cultural experiences to the heartland. Over the past two decades, we have transformed a block of vacant buildings in New Rockford, ND (population 1400) into a center of cultural activity. This historic Opera House complex includes a renowned stage theatre, coffee shop, wine bar, gift shop, and dance studio. A second building location was donated in 2011, leading to the renovation and opening of the Old Church Theatre.

Our Vision

DPRCA shall inspire, educate, and entertain audiences by providing a wide range of artistic presentations. It shall also serve as a resource and a gathering place for the community at large by providing art related education and programming opportunities.
