Hello, Dolly!, the blockbuster Broadway hit, bursts with humor, romance, high-energy dancing, and some of the greatest songs in musical theatre history. The romantic and comic exploits of Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and “woman who arranges things,” will keep you laughing all night.
The show’s memorable songs include “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” Ribbons Down My Back,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Hello, Dolly!,” “Elegance,” and “It Only Takes a Moment.”
Stuart Richey directs, with Ashley Daily as music director, Ted Blessing as choreographer, and Barb Armstead as stage manager.
