Featuring favorite Jerry Herman songs such as "Put on Your Sunday Clothes," "It Takes a Woman" and, of course, "Hello, Dolly," this endearing tale will tug on your heartstrings and make you laugh.

The cast includes Debbie Spradling as Dolly, Tim Harper as Horace Vandergelder and Cameron Vance as Cornelius Hackl. The classic production is under the direction and choreography of Nina Denton Pasinetti with musical direction by John Marshall and technical direction by Tom Pasinetti.
