Aspen High School’s spring production of the musical “Pippin” has been nominated for two Bobby G Awards, which annually recognize outstanding achievement in high school musical theater in Colorado.

Lighting designer Scott Nelson and Aspen High School student designer Demian Detweiller are up for Outstanding Achievement in Lighting Design, while set designer Tom Ward and student designer Hannah Freeman received a nod for Outstanding Achievement in Scenic Design.

“This is so exciting for Aspen High School,” said theater teacher Logan Carter, who directed “Pippin.”

This spring was the first time that Aspen High submitted its production for consideration by the Bobby G Awards, which are named for pioneering Denver-based producer Robert Simpson Garner and hosted by the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.

The awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 25, at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in Denver.
