Driving Miss Daisy Fundraiser Play Benefiting Senior Housing Options in Denver
Date: August 18, 2012
Location: The Barth Hotel Assisted Living
Address: 1514 17th Street, Denver, CO
Plan on attending Alfred Uhry’s “Driving Miss Daisy” in the historic lobby of The Barth Hotel. This is the fifth annual summer theater fundraiser for Senior Housing Options (SHO), a non-profit providing quality affordable housing and services for 500 older adults in Colorado. Former Broadway actor Billie McBride plays the Southern Jewish widow Daisy, whose son (played by the Denver Center Theater Company’s Sam Gregory) insists she hire a driver (Dwayne Carrington - reprising the role for which he won a Colorado Community Theater Coalition best actor award in 2000), despite her rigorous complaints. Set in Atlanta from 1948 - 1973, “Driving Miss Daisy” is a profound comedy about aging, prejudice, family and unlikely friendships. Ashlee Temple directs. “Driving Miss Daisy” performs in the historic lobby of The Barth Hotel, 1514 Seventeenth Street in the heart of LoDo. There are only 12 performances, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from July 26 through August 18, 2012.
