About the Play
"Hello, Dolly!" is the popular Tony Award-winning Broadway musical by the legendary creative team of Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart. Based on Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker, the musical regales the audience with the heartwarming story of life’s second chances as maneuvered by the indomitable Dolly Levi, who states in her daily code, "Some people paint, some sew...I meddle." Audiences will travel on a whirlwind race around turn-of-the-century New York City while being treated to some of the most beloved show tunes of all time, including, "Before the Parade Passes By," "It Only Takes a Moment," and of course the favorite, "Hello, Dolly."
"Hello, Dolly!" features Broadway veteran Courtenay Collins making her GET debut as Dolly Levi; Danny Cook plays Horace Vandergelder; the rest of the talented cast includes Marcie Millard as Ernestina, Chase Crandell as Ambrose; Anna Kimmel as Ermengarde; Jeff McKerley as Cornelius; Chris Lewis as Barnaby; Kylie Brown as Minnie Fay; Mary Nye Bennett as Irene; and Trey Getz, Lauren Rosenzweig and Tucker Weinmann as Ensemble. Heidi Cline McKerley directs the production, with Bill Newberry serving as Music Director and Jeff McKerley as Choreographer.
