VHHS Backlight Theatre Company Presents...Hello Dolly!

One of the most beloved musicals of all time, Jerry Herman’s energetic Hello, Dolly! is a musical filled with charisma and with heart. Dolly Levi is a widow, a matchmaker, and also a professional meddler --but everything changes when she decides that the next match she needs to make is to find someone for herself. Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Hello, Dolly! is boisterous and charming from start to finish. Featuring such memorable songs as “Before the Parade Passes By,” “It Only Takes a Moment,” “Put on Your Sunday Clothes,” and “Hello, Dolly!” this musical will appeal to all ages.
VHHS will bring this classic musical to life with over 90 students involved in cast, crew, and orchestra in this production. Backlight Theatre Company is honored to present our version of this fabulous and timeless musical.
