was our summer 2014 production


Hello, Dolly is the exuberant story of matchmaker, Dolly Levi as she meddles her way into people’s lives from small-town Yonkers to the big city of New York. This ensemble musical features a cast of loveable and quirky characters who dream of something better than their ordinary lives.  Dolly’s meddlesome antics stir up change and eventually usher in love reminding us that sometimes a moment of folly can create a lifetime of bliss.  Every song in Hello, Dolly is a showstopper including Put On Your Sunday Clothes, Ribbons Down My Back, Before the Parade Passes By, Elegance, It Only Takes A Moment and of course, Hello, Dolly.
