“It’s so nice to have you back where you belong!” – Hello Dolly

From a very early age I was obsessed with Golden Age Musicals. As time developed and fellow cast mates and students at school were learning how to belt the most recent Idina Menzel musical rave, I was hooked on the voices of Barbara Streisand, Audrey Hepburn, and Julie Andrews. I always associate watching Golden Age Musicals as watching something with “kid goggles.” It’s that memory that awakens with a different color and smell, and you remember every detail and sensation! As we grow older it’s important to have those moments that take us back and remind us of pure happiness and our youth. 

One thing Hello, Dolly! brings for any one of all ages is just that- nostalgia. It presents the audience the story of LOVE. Young love, new love, old love, and the trials we are willing to endure for that love! It’s what the phrase “dancing through life” means and encourages the audience to just live with no regrets! 

Welcome to The Firehouse Theatre and THANK YOU for being a part of our nostalgia! 

Put on your “kid vision” and enjoy this classic musical theatre masterpiece!
