Silver Hotties and Friends: 10th Anniversary Road Trip
Windsor Gardens Auditorium: June 6 and 7

     The first appearance of The Silver Hotties was ten years ago. They’ve performed 19 times at Denver Nuggets games as well as being featured at the Ameristar Casino in Blackhawk and other venues throughout the Metro area. So after a decade of acclaimed shows they decided to do a celebratory production.
     “The Tenth Anniversary Road Trip” was only performed for one weekend at the Windsor Gardens Auditorium. 
     SRO crowds who gave it standing ovations received the show warmly. Director Hillary Hutson, who also choreographed the show, led these lovely ladies through their paces with tongue planted firmly in cheek.
The show takes us on a Road Trip down memory lane on which these talented ladies hoof it to such diverse tunes as: “Belly up to the Bar, Boys”, “Anything Goes” and “All That Jazz.” The show does get a little steamy when the ensemble appears as “The Hell’s Hotties”.  In “Born to Be Wild,” Judy Flomberg gets to show her edgier side in a scene that one might call “50 Shades of Grey” at the Gardens.
     Contributing hugely to the show was Lynn Nicholson who created and built the scenic design, played drums and even sang at one point. (You may remember him from his portrayal of the Inspector in Vintage Theatre’s “Harold and Maude.” You know that hilarious and touching play Pamela Clifton, who also teaches Drama and directs plays at Windsor Gardens, directed.)
     The jazzy finale, danced to “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” sent one and all home with an ear-to-ear smile pasted on their faces.
     The Silver Hotties are: Alice Daley, Beth Vaden. Carole O’Connell, Cindy Crockett, Gretchen Sombar, Hillary Hutson, Judy Flomberg, Judy Ramsey, Julie Whalen, Kathy Jochem, Kelly Hopper, Loretta McCoy, Lori Fath, Marilyn Tyler, Mary Julsen, Nancy Delhay, Pat Stone, Patty Farrell and Sherrie Harris.

Windsor Gardens Auditorium is at 595 South Clinton in Denver.
