DCHS Drama Department and the Delphi Players are performing the Broadway smash hit Hello Dolly for this year’s spring musical.


Set in 1890s New York City,  the widow Dolly Levi (Sarah Rohrer) is a socialite turned matchmaker. Her latest clients are the cantankerous “half-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder (Seth Mesaros) and a young artist named Ambrose (Kevin Zabala), who is in love with Horace’s niece, Ermengarde (Jessica Powlen).


Dolly’s scheming soon involves Horace’s employees Cornelius (Noah Red Elk) and Barnaby (Aden Sinks), as well as a New York hat maker Irene Molloy (Kristina Powlen) and her assistant Minnie Fay (Emily Hudson). Hilarity ensues as Dolly tries to cover up her own secret romantic designs.


Cassie Pettiner, the musical’s student director, said, “I love working with everyone and making new friends. This musical is going to be amazing and everyone has put a bunch of hard work into it. We all are excited to have people come out and watch us perform. It’s a lot of hard work but it’s a lot of fun.”


The performances will be March 16 and 17 at 7:00 pm, with the Friday performance possibly being moved to Sunday at 2:00 pm if Mrs. Cotten’s Entertainers qualify for state. Tickets will be sold in advance on the Delphi Opera House website and sold the week of the performance during lunches.
