Coweta: Backstage Players to Perform "Hello Dolly!"

The Backstage Players of Northgate Senior High are proud to present their annual spring musical production, “Hello Dolly!” The play will run three evenings: Thursday, May 13th, Friday, May 14th and Saturday, May 15th at The Centre For Performing and Visual Arts in Newnan. All shows start at 7 p.m.

“This should be a wonderful show – the students have been working so hard and rehearsing for a few months. Their energy levels are ‘at the top’ and we look forward to a great turn out for Hello, Dolly!” according to Drama Teacher Melanie Bruner.

“Hello Dolly!” is the story of Mrs. Dolly Levi’s efforts to marry Horace Vandergelder, the well-known half-a-millionaire and to send Horace’s money circulating among the people like rainwater, the way her late husband, Ephraim Levi, taught her. Along the way, Dolly succeeds in matching up the young and beautiful Widow Molloy with Vandergelder’s head clerk, Cornelius Hackle; Cornelius’ assistant , Barnaby Tucker, with Mrs. Molloy’s assistant, Minnie Fay; and the struggling artist, Ambrose Kemper, with Mr. Vandergelder’s weeping niece, Ermengarde. When everyone shows up at the swanky restaurant The Harmonia Gardens, mayhem ensues. Dolly is greeted by the waiters, cooks, doormen and wine stewards in one of the most famous songs in the history of American musical comedy, “Hello, Dolly!”

Classical musical numbers include “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Ribbons Down My Back,” “Before The Parade Passes By,” “Elegance,” “It Only Takes A Moment,” “So Long, Dearie,” and “Hello, Dolly!”

Coweta’s Centre For Performing Arts is located at 1523 Lower Fayetteville Road, Newnan, Georgia. Show dates are Thursday, May 13th, Friday, May 14th and Saturday, May 15th. All shows start at 7 p.m. The Centre staff opens the doors at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at $5. for students and $8. for adults.
