Get ready! Brook Hill’s 2014 spring musical is coming this way! This May Brook Hill students will be performing in this year’s spring musical, Hello, Dolly.
The show is set in Yonkers, New York, where matchmaker Dolly Levi has her sights set on the city’s most eligible bachelor, Horace Vandergelder. The role of Dolly, previously played by such actresses as Barbara Streisand and Carol Channing, will be created on the Brook Hill stage by our very own Kelsey Kilgore and Jazmen Jones.
The show’s director, Mr. Glenn Ballard, says that “the audition process revealed a lot of talented kids and excitement is running high among the directors. The play is a classic work and we feel very good about staging this musical.”
The play is indeed timeless, as cast member Emily Webb said, “It has a lot of great music with some amazing dance numbers.”
So be sure to mark your calendars for May 2, 3, 9 & 10 and come see Hello Dolly. You’ll be glad you did!
