The Colorado Theatre Guild announced earlier this week that Thunder River Theatre Company, based in the heart of the Carbondale Creative District, has been nominated for 11 Henry Awards.

The Henry Awards are the highest honor bestowed on theaters in the state of Colorado. TRTC has been honored with 28 nominations over the past three seasons and received three Henry Awards over the past two years.

A number of theater regulars were nominated this year, as well as both Isaac Stackonis and Brittany Dye, from Los Angeles and New York, respectively, who TRTC hired this year through the theater’s inaugural Guest Artist Program.

“There are so many terrific theaters doing beautiful work throughout the state, and we are so honored to be nominated among such esteemed company,” Corey Simpson, TRTC’s executive artistic director, said. “We are so lucky to be in a beautiful and creative mountain community that embraces unique, heartfelt and risky artistic work, and we invite everyone to come and visit us.”
