Henry Awards

The Henry Awards Are Back!

The Colorado Theatre Guild’s 16th Annual Henry Awards will take place on Monday, July 25, 2022 at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, 6901 Wadsworth Boulevard, Arvada, CO 80003.

Established in 2006, the Henry Awards honor outstanding achievements during the past season and serves as the Colorado Theatre Guild’s annual fundraising event. The awards are named for longtime local theatre producer Henry Lowenstein. Nominations are determined through a judging process conducted by more than 100 statewide peer professionals, academics/educators and other theatre lovers.

Nominations are determined through a judging process conducted by statewide theatre reporters, educators, and assigned judges. 

Few people have had as much impact on theater in Denver—or the lives of theater people in Denver—as Henry Lowenstein, who ran Denver Post publisher Helen Bonfils’ crown jewel on East Colfax Avenue and Elizabeth Street until the theater closed in 1986. He discovered new talent. He launched careers. He encouraged women and people of color. For hundreds of thousands of Coloradans, the Bonfils served as their first experience in live theater.
