presented by Queanbeyan Players
Winner of 4 Tony Awards® including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Actress in a Musical (Bette Midler) for the recent Broadway show at the Schubert Theatre, Hello, Dolly! has been enthralling audiences for over 50 years.
Hello, Dolly! offers classic musical theatre without a hint of apology. It bursts with humour, romance and is boisterous and charming from start to finish.
In 1890s New York City, the bold and enchanting widow, Dolly Levi (who has been played by a bevy of stars from Carol Channing to Barbra Streisand to Bette Midler) is a socialite-turned-matchmaker and as Dolly says “some people sew…I meddle!”. Her latest client seeking assistance is the cantankerous Yonkers “half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder. Dolly’s scheming soon chaotically involves Horace’s employees, Cornelius and Barnaby, as well as a New York hat maker, Irene Molloy and her assistant Minnie Fay, as Dolly tries to cover up her own secret romantic designs.
Queanbeyan Players has assembled a stellar cast, drawn entirely from local talent, headed by Janelle McMenamin (Grizabella in CATS and Diana in Next to Normal) as the irrepressible Dolly and Tony Falla (Javert in Les Misérables and Monsieur Andre in Phantom of the Opera) as the ever-grumpy Horace.
Jerry Herman’s exuberant score is a show-tune bonanza with some of the greatest songs in musical theatre history. It includes the smash hits Hello, Dolly!, Put On Your Sunday Clothes, Before the Parade Passes By and It Only Takes A Moment.
An eternal blockbuster Broadway hit which is currently experiencing a Broadway revival to rave reviews, Hello, Dolly! is energetic and filled with charisma and heart!
