SLPHS Musical Hello Dolly!

Hello Dolly

Book by: Michael Stewart Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman   Based on the play: The Matchmaker by: Thornton Wilder Original Production Directed and Choreographed by: Gower Champion, Directed by: Kevin Dutcher

This musical adaptation of Thornton Wilder’s hit play, “The Matchmaker” bursts onto the stage with humor, romance, energetic dance numbers and some of the greatest songs in musical theatre history.  It’s the story of Dolly Levi, a strong-willed matchmaker, as she attempts to find a match for the miserly "well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder.  Along the way she also succeeds in matching up the young and beautiful Widow Molloy with Vandergelder’s head clerk, Cornelius Hackl; Cornelius’ assistant, Barnaby Tucker, with Mrs. Molloy’s assistant, Minnie Fay; and the struggling artist, Ambrose Kemper, with Mr. Vandergelder’s forlorn niece, Ermengarde.

Mrs. Levi tracks Vandergelder from his hay and feed store in Yonkers to Mrs. Molloy’s hat shop in New York, out onto the streets of the city and finally to the most elegant and expensive restaurant in town. Does everyone end up “happily ever after”?  Come join us and find out!
