Theatre Arts Presents: Hello, Dolly!

Saddleback Civic Light Opera and the Department of Theatre Arts proudly present Hello, Dolly! starring Jonelle Allen as Dolly on July 11th-27th in the beautiful McKinney Theatre on the Saddleback College campus. Jonelle Allen is not only a Saddleback College acting professor but also an established film, television, and musical theatre performer. Directed by Myrona DeLaney with choreography by Roger Castellano and musical direction by Lex Leigh, this enduring Broadway classic is the winner of ten Tony Awards including Best Musical.

“And what do you do for a living, Mrs. Levi?’ asks Ambrose Kemper in the first scene of this most delightful of musical comedies. “Some people paint, some sew… I meddle,” replies Dolly. Hello Dolly is full of memorable songs including: Put on Your Sunday Clothes, Ribbons Down My Back, Before the Parade Passes By, Elegance and Hello, Dolly! And we’re off on a whirlwind race around New York at the turn of the twentieth century as we follow the adventures of America’s most beloved matchmaker.
