Music in Durham

Hello, Dolly!

Durham University’s largest Musical Theatre society head to New York, Yonkers ‘to handle a highly personal matter for Mr. Horace Vandergelder, the well-known, unmarried, half-a-millionaire’, in a spectacle of glitz and glamour. With classic numbers including ‘Put on Your Sunday Clothes’ and ‘Before the Parade Passes By,’ Hello, Dolly! is a story of meddling, mischief, charm, and the ultimate matchmaking mission when Dolly Levi, a widow, renowned matchmaker, and all-round meddler decides that the next match she needs to make is for herself!  This Golden Age classic boasts a comedy-packed script  that also provides a heart-warming feel good atmosphere that will have you ready to “close the town in a whirl!”
