Hello, Dolly!

BOOK BY Michael Stewart MUSIC & LYRICS BY Jerry Herman
BASED ON THE PLAY “The Matchmaker” By Thornton Wilder
Original Production Directed & Choreographed by Gower Champion produced for the
Broadway Stage by David Merrick & Champion-Five, Inc

An amateur production presented by arrangement with MusicScope and Stage Musicals Limited of New York

The crux of the smash-hit musical “Hello, Dolly!” is Mrs. Dolly Gallagher Levi’s plan to marry Horace Vandergelder, the well-known half-a-millionaire.  She embarks on herfavourite pastime – meddling – and, along the way, also succeeds in matching up the young and beautiful widow, Mrs. Irene Molloy, with Horace Vandergelder’s head clerk, Cornelius Hackl; his assistant, Barnaby Tucker, with Mrs. Molloy’s assistant, Minnie Fay; and the struggling artist, Ambrose Kemper, with Mr. Vandergelder’s weeping niece, Ermengarde.

Mrs. Levi tracks Mr. Vandergelder to his hay and feed store in Yonkers and then back to Mrs. Molloy’s hat shop in New York.  Out in the streets of the city, everyone is caught up in the great Fourteenth Street Parade, ending finally at the most elegant and expensive restaurant in town, the Harmonia Gardens, where Dolly is greeted by Rudolph and all the waiters in one of the most famous songs in the history of the American musical – “Hello, Dolly!”.

What happens in the end? Dolly’s web of intrigue finally unravels and she gets her man, of course.

The show-stopping numbers in this sparkling production include:  “Put On Your Sunday Clothes”, “It Takes a Woman”, “Before the Parade Passes By”, “Elegance”, “The Waiters’ Galop” and “Hello, Dolly!” itself.

She’s here, she’s back, don’t miss her!

A Play, a Pie and a Pint: 'Auntie Agatha Comes To Tea' George Milne @ The Lemon Tree

Damien and Martin are brothers who do not see very much of their elderly Aunt Agatha. But the business is in difficulties. Agatha has wisdom, experience, and money. It’s the money that they want to focus on. Expecting to inherit her cash, and not too enthusiastic about the wait, it is decided the time is right to invite her round for a “ fly cup.” They have also bought some poison. At the visit, revelations unfold, attitudes change, consciences rise and sink, and refreshments are served. Nothing will be the same after Auntie Agatha comes to tea.
