EODS are delighted to bring to you Hello, Dolly!, the blockbuster Broadway Musical that bursts with humour, romance and high-energy dancing. The story follows the romantic and comic exploits of widow Dolly Gallagher-Levi the turn-of-the-20th century "woman who arranges things”. Dolly is always on hand to meddle, manipulate and play matchmaker to anyone who pays for her expertise. Dolly is employed to play matchmaker by a wealthy client  but decides she’s going to marry miserly half-a-millionaire hay & feed dealer Horace Vandergelder herself, and so the fun begins.

Along the way to finding herself a new husband we see Dolly having regular touching chats with her late husband Ephraim, seeking his approval to find love again. The tale moves fast but Dolly still finds the time to play cupid for the hapless Cornelius Hackl and Milliner Irene Molloy and their counterparts Barnaby Tucker and Minnie Fay.

Claire Robinson plays the dazzling Dolly Levi and Clem Jackson provides the perfect foil and as the grumpy Horace Vandergelder. The energy and enthusiasm comes from Wayne Newton and Christopher Smith who play Vandergelder’s downtrodden clerks Cornelius and Barnaby. Casey Dearing and Josie Mead play Irene Molly, the milliner ‘who hates hats’ and her faithful assistant Minnie Fay.

Together with Cornelius and Barnaby they play a large part in leading the energetic dance routines. The main players are supported by a wonderful cast who sing, dance, tumble, juggle and smile their way through the show. Hello Dolly! is certain to thrill and entertain audiences so don’t miss out on memorable songs such as "Put On Your Sunday Clothes," "Ribbons Down My Back," "Before the Parade Passes By," "Hello, Dolly!," "Elegance," and "It Only Takes a Moment."
