In 2009, Theatre Aspen received the Outstanding Regional Theatre Henry Award. Its 2015 season opens today with “Cabaret.”
Established in 2006, the Henry Awards honor outstanding achievements during the past season and serve as the Colorado Theatre Guild’s annual fundraising event. The awards are named for longtime local theater producer Henry Lowenstein. Nominations are determined through a judging process conducted by more than 45 statewide theater reporters, educators and assigned judges, including Aspen Times arts editor Andrew Travers.
The 10th annual Henry Awards ceremony will be July 20 at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. Tickets are $23 for guild members, $30 for nonmembers or $50 for VIPs. Tickets go on sale July 6 through the Arvada Center website and at 720-898-7200. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door for $35. For more information, go to http://www.coloradotheatreguild.org.
