The Bobby G Awards, a year-long celebration of Colorado high-school theatre administered through the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, has released the list of 30 participating schools for the third annual awards to be presented on Thursday, May 28, at the Buell Theatre.

After just two years, the DCPA has expanded the Bobby G Awards into a year-round program. And for the first time, Colorado high schools statewide are now eligible for consideration. One of those new high schools is Glenwood Springs.

Private and public high school musical theatre programs in Colorado were invited to have their shows adjudicated by professional theatre experts. Participating schools receive detailed feedback on their musical production and are considered for the annual awards show, which is modeled after the Tony Awards. Students named outstanding actor and Actress move on to the  National High School Musical Theater Awards  in New York City.
