Congratulations to Fountain Hills Theater’s Prizm Award Recipients!

The Prizm Awards are presented annually by Fountain Hills Theater for excellence in acting, design and direction. The Prizm Awards are voted upon by FHT’s Season subscribers and attended by invitation only.  The Prizms have become a celebration, party and reunion night for actors and crew, as well as designers, musicians and staff. Also honored are volunteers who have gone above and beyond in service to the theater. Fountain Hills Theater sincerely thanks all of the cast and crew members from all of our 2017-18 productions.
