Dolly makes her Spring Lake debut after a very successful recent revival on Broadway. This full of fun and upbeat musical follows the romantic exploits of Dolly Gallagher Levi, a strong-willed matchmaker in 1890’s New York as she tries to find a match for the miserly “well known unmarried half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder. Most memorable songs include: “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Elegance,” and of course, “Hello Dolly.”


Dolly Gallagher Levi: A widow in her middle years who has decided to begin her life again. She is a matchmaker, meddler, opportunist, and a life-loving woman.

Horace Vandergelder: The proprietor of a Hay & Feed store and a client of Dolly Gallagher Levi's. A well-known half-a-millionaire, he is a widower, gruff, authoritative, and set in his ways.

Cornelius Hackl: Vandergelder's chief clerk who yearns for one exciting day in NYC. Energetic, enthusiastic, and adventurous young man who has a sweet innocence about him.

Barnaby Tucker: An assistant to Cornelius at Vandergelder's Hay & Feed store. He is sweet, naïve, energetic, and a follower.

Irene Molloy: A widow and a beautiful, smart, fun-loving milliner with a hat shop in New York. Dolly has introduced her to Horace Vandergelder but she yearns for romance.

Minnie Fay: A young girl who works in Irene's hat shop. Irene's assistant, she is a naïve, strait-laced, fresh, and a follower.

Ambrose Kemper: A young and explosive struggling artist seeking to marry Ermengarde.

Ermengarde: The young niece of Horace Vandergelder. She cries often and wants her independence and wants to marry Ambrose.

Ernestina Money: An eccentric-looking girl in need of Dolly's matchmaker services.

Rudolf Reisenweber: Maître d' of the Harmonia Gardens restaurant.

Judge: A white-whiskered night court judge. Easily moved to tears by romance.

Mrs. Rose: An old friend of Dolly's.
