Hi, what are you looking for?


‘Hello, Dolly!’ comes to the Manchester Arts Center

Need a wife? Need a husband? In turn-of-the-century New York you’d call on Dolly, matchmaker and “woman who arranges things” – like luncheon parties, poker games, and love!  

The classic musical Hello, Dolly! takes over the Manchester Arts Center for two weekends beginning November 11, bursting with laughter, romance, farce, rousing dances and some of the greatest songs in musical theatre history.  

Doreen Schulz lights up the stage as Dolly, marriage broker and meddler, with Landon Spangler and Roy Adams as Cornelius and Barnaby, who skip work to head into the city, vowing to “not come home until we’ve kissed a girl” (though they never have), and Karen Wainright and Kaitlyn Rogers as Irene and Minnie, the objects of their clumsy and hilarious affection.
