Musical fans can say hello to an old favourite

Derbyshire-based Present Company will be performing the popular musical Hello Dolly! at Buxton Opera House from August 21-24.

Present Company is delighted to return to the stage of Buxton Opera House with a third Jerry Herman musical, arguably his best.

In the musical, Dolly Levi, matchmaker par excellence, employs all her womanly wiles to secure a new husband for herself, turning New York City upside down in the process, while bringing romance, love and joy to everyone she meets.

Jerry Herman’s up-beat razzle-dazzle numbers include Hello, Dolly!, Put On Your Sunday Clothes, It Takes a Woman, and more, make this a witty, all singing, all dancing, fun-filled show for all the family.

After Mack & Mabel in 2000 and La Cage Aux Folles in 2004, Present Company is delighted to complete Jerry Herman’s trio of masterpieces of musical theatre.

It is 50 years since “Dolly” first said “Hello!” to an adoring public, prior to a triumphant Broadway run of 2,844 performances, and 25 years since Present Company first performed at Buxton Opera House.

Performance are nightly from 7.30pm with an additional Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. For tickets, call 0845 127 2190.
