HELLO, DOLLY is an ebullient and irresistible story of the joy of living, glittering with happy songs, shining with loving scenes, alive with the personality of one of the most fabulous characters on the musical stage…Dolly Gallagher Levi!   It is the story of Mrs. Dolly Levi’s efforts to marry Horace Vandergelder, the well known Yonkers half-a-millionaire, and send his money circulating among the people, the way her late husband (Ephraim Levi) taught her: “Money is like manure. It’s not worth anything unless its spread around.”

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 weeping niece, Ermengarde.

Stir into the mix a fantastic street parade, a waiter’s gallop, a polka competition and a court appearance and you have all the ingredients for a wonderful evening’s entertainment.

Classic musical numbers include Hello Dolly, Put On Your Sunday Clothes, Ribbons Down My Back, Before the Parade Passes By, Elegance, It Only Takes A Moment and So Long, Dearie
