Larry Parr's HI-HAT HATTIE to Play the Aurora Fox
A solo musical tour-de-force, Larry Parr's "Hi-Hat Hattie" takes place backstage of an old theater where Hattie McDaniel recalls the incredible events of her storied show business life. The production will run November 24 - December 23, 2017 at the Aurora Fox.
Raised in Denver and a graduate of Denver East High School, the show details her journey from childhood, through her pain as a stunned widow, to becoming the graceful artist that never buckled under the restraints of appearance, gender or race.
"Hi-Hat Hattie" is the funny and thought-provoking musical biography of a talented female artist, who would become the first black woman to win an Oscar for her iconic role as Mammy in "Gone with the Wind."
Features jazz and blues classics like "St. Louis Blues," "Danny Boy," "Can't Help Lovin Dat Man," "Amazing Grace" and more.
Starring Anna High as Hattie McDaniel, with musical direction by Jodel Charles.
