Aurora Fox Arts Center Announces 2017-2018 Season
New this season, a Cabaret Series and shows on Thursdays
AURORA, Colo. – The Aurora Fox Arts Center is proud to announce the 2017-2018 season featuring five outstanding productions, “Company,” “Hi-Hat Hattie,” “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” “Real Women Have Curves” and “Passing Strange,” as well the introduction of a Cabaret Series and the addition of Thursdays performances.
Kicking off Season 33 is Stephen Sondheim’s contemporary musical classic, “Company,” running Sept. 22 – Oct. 22. Winner of seven Tony Awards, “Company” has been lauded as the show that redefined modern musical theatre and promises to be a laugh-out-loud season opener featuring some of Sondheim’s best known songs.
Then comes “Hi-Hat Hattie,” playing Nov. 24 – Dec. 23. This musical tour-de-force soulfully examines the life of Denver legend Hattie McDaniel and will feature local favorite, Anna High (“The Color Purple” and Porgy & Bess”).
Rounding out the latter portion of the season will be the cult favorite musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” (Jan. 19 – Feb. 10), the lauded Latina immigrant comedy-drama “Real Women Have Curves” (Feb. 23 – Mar. 18) and the high-energy Tony Award-winning musical “Passing Strange” (Apr. 13 – May 13).
A new exciting addition to The Fox programming is the Cabaret Series, which will feature a dynamic program in the intimate setting of the Fox’s Studio Theatre. Also new for Season 33 is the addition of Thursday night performances to the entire season, allowing more options to enjoy the first-class entertainment at The Aurora Fox.
The Annual Fox Fundraising Gala will be held in April this season, once again featuring pre-show dinner, select wines, a silent auction and a full performance of the Season 33 closing musical, “Passing Strange.”
