Director: Brad Garnaat         Assistant Director: CJ Pletcher

Comstock Community Auditorium, 2107 N. 26th Street, Kalamazoo, MI 49048
Hello, Dolly! is the enchantingly elegant story of Mrs. Dolly Levi and her determination to marry the well-known half-a-millionaire, Mr. Horace Vandergelder. Along the way, her desire to meddle in other peoples’ affairs creates gut-busting comedic conflict as Dolly drives the story forward, leaving behind a wake of laughter. From out in the country, to the bright lights of the big city of New York, New York, this show sings and dances itself along with a fast paced and fun energy.  Purchase Tickets Here
