On Tuesday, June 12, the Colorado Theatre Guild announced the nominees for its annual Henry Awards, the most anticipated theater awards in the state, with two Colorado Springs companies represented: the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College and TheatreWorks. Last year, the FAC earned 12 nominations and won five awards for its production of Man of La Mancha, and Springs Ensemble Theater received three nominations.

Now, the FAC has racked up a whopping 24 nominations, putting them just behind Arvada Center, which received 29. TheatreWorks received two. Fun Home and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, both FAC productions, tied with the most nominations for a single production — 11 each.
