A solo musical tour-de-force, “Hi-Hat Hattie” takes place backstage of an old theater where Hattie McDaniel recalls the incredible events of her storied show business life. 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.

The historic Aurora Fox presents one of the most unique theatrical experiences in the Denver-metro area. This, however, comes at a cost: ticket sales only cover a percentage of The Fox’s overall operating expenses. We rely on the generosity of patrons to offset this difference – please help us keep first-class theatre accessible and affordable for everyone by making a donation.
