HELLO DOLLY! has become one of Broadway’s most enduring musical hits and features well-known songs such as “Put On Your Sunday Clothes”, “Before The Parade Passes By”, and of course, “Hello, Dolly!” Matchmaker and professional meddler, Dolly Levi takes a trip to Yonkers, New York to see the “well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire,” Horace Vandergelder. While there, she convinces him to go on a trip to New York City, and proceeds to weave a web of romantic complications involving Horace, his two stock clerks, a pretty milliner and her assistant. Tony®-nominated actress Loretta Ables Sayre, last seen in DHT’s “South Pacific” will play the role of “Dolly Levi”.
