Henry Award Nomination
I have been nominated for a 2021-2022 Colorado Theatre Guild Henry Nomination for Best Actor in a Musical for the Cowardly Lion in "The Wizard of Oz" at the PACE Center!
"Last seen at PACE in the Sasquatch/Parker Arts production of Matilda the Musical, Ben Hilzer has a breakout, scene-stealing performance as the cowardly lion. Channeling Bert Lahr in the original 1939 film, Hilzer pumps up the Bowery Boys pugilism while adding a wide range of curious, hilarious vocalisms that made him a crowd favorite."
Alex Miller, OnStage Colorado, The Wizard of Oz
"Hilzer and Von Bokern are at the height of their comedic game. Who knew these two guys with gorgeous vocals could basically pull off any accent with perfection."
Chris Arneson, BroadwayWorld, The Big Bang
"Mr. Wormwood (brilliantly performed by Ben Hilzer whose comic timing is, once again, impeccable)...Be sure to come back in a timely fashion from the intermission. One of the funniest parts of the show is the conversation Mr. Wormwood has with the audience members before they start Act II. It's classic Ben Hilzer."
Beki Pineda, Get Boulder, Matilda the Musical
"Ben Hilzer offers the perfect Vaudvillian counterpoint as [Gaston's] bumbling stooge Lefou."
Patrick Dorn, Best Seat in Town, Beauty and the Beast
"For a wicked, wicked father, Ben Hilzer couldn't possibly be a more lovable Wormwood."
John Moore, Former Critic of the Denver Post, Matilda the Musical
"Playing Stan Laurel to Largents' Oliver Hardy is Ben Hilzer. It's hard to take your eyes off his clowning Sylvestre, who often steals the show with an agility and strength that makes him an excellent physical comedian. Hilzer is a skilled mimic who kills in his set piece of movie quotes."
Kate Forgach, Tattle Tales, Scapin
"Ben Hilzer as Mr. Henslowe has pitch perfect comedic timing, and whether goofy or deadpan received the biggest laughs of the show."
Ginny Quaney, PlayShakespeare, Shakespeare in Love
"Also exceptional is Ben Hilzer as Moritz, an ill-fated boy who can't seem to catch a break. The spellbinding Hilzer drew sobs and sniffles throughout the opening-night audience."
Kate Forgach, Tattle Tales, Spring Awakening
