The Boyertown Area Times - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ham­burg Area School District and the Ham­burg Hawks Per­form­ing Arts in­vite the com­mu­nity to their pro­duc­tion of “Hello, Dolly!” on Nov. 16 and 17. Come see if Dolly suc­ceeds in her mis­sion to find love in this turnof-the-cen­tury ex­plo­ration of old-fash­ioned ro­mance through com­edy and song.

The pro­duc­tion is di­rected by Barry Dries­bach with vo­cal di­rec­tion by Sara Jack­son and chore­og­ra­phy by Heidi Warmkessel.

De­scrip­tion: In 1890s New York City, the bold and en­chant­ing widow Dolly Levi is a so­cialite-turned-match­maker. Her lat­est clients seek­ing as­sis­tance are the can­tan­ker­ous “half-a-mil­lion­aire” Ho­race Van­dergelder and a young artist named Am­brose, who is in love with Ho­race’s niece, Er­men­garde. Dolly’s schem­ing soon in­volves Ho­race’s em­ploy­ees as well as a New York hat-maker, as she tries to cover up her own se­cret ro­man­tic de­signs! Filled with songs and well-placed comedic tim­ing, Hello, Dolly! (pro­duced through spe­cial per­mis­sion by Tams-Wit­mark) is based on the play The Match­maker by Thorn­ton Wilder. Book by Michael Stewart. Mu­sic and lyrics by Jerry Herman.
