Lutcher Theater presents “Hello Dolly!”

ORANGE — One of the most enduring Broadway classics of all time, “Hello Dolly!” starring Sally Struthers, arrives in Orange, TX as the Lutcher Theater presents this timeless masterpiece at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 26, and, again, on Thursday, March 27.

Tickets for “Hello Dolly!” are on sale now and start at only $35. Tickets are available online at www.lutcher.org or at the Lutcher Theater Box Office. To Charge-By-Phone, call 409-886-5535. Groups of 10 or more should call 409-886-5535 to make group reservations.

Two-time Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Sally Struthers stars as the strong-willed matchmaker Dolly, who travels to Yonkers, New York, to find a match for the ornery “well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder.

Best known for her work as Gloria in the legendary television series All in the Family and more recently as Babette on Gilmore Girls, Struthers’ career has spanned four decades. In addition to her ubiquitous TV career, she has sparkled on the musical theater stage nationwide with featured roles in Broadway productions of Annie, Grease and The Odd Couple, and regionally in The Full Monty, Mame, Legally Blonde and Chicago.

With an irresistible story and an unforgettable score including classics such as, “Hello Dolly!”, “Put on Your Sunday Clothes,” “It Only Takes a Moment,” and the show-stopping “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Hello Dolly!” has been delighting audiences around the world since 1964. However, this is the first time for “Hello Dolly!” to be presented at the Lutcher Theater.

Winner of 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Choreography, “Hello Dolly!” features music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart. Since its multi-Tony Award winning Broadway premiere in 1964, the show has had three Broadway revivals and boundless international success, as well as a film adaptation that was nominated for seven Academy Awards in 1969.

“Hello Dolly!” starring Sally Struthers is directed by Jeffrey B. Moss, with choreography by Bob Richard, Lighting Design by Charlie Morrison, and Musical Supervision by Skip Brevis. The executive producer is Daniel Sher at Big League Productions, Inc.

“Hello Dolly!” is produced by Big League Productions, Inc. Led by President and Executive Producer Daniel Sher and Vice President of Booking, John Starr, Big League is celebrating its 25th season of producing, general managing and booking Broadway musicals and special attractions for touring throughout North America. Past Big League Productions presented by the Lutcher Theater include Blast, My Fair Lady, Dreamgirls and Dr. Seuss How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
