The tuneful troupers at Northwest Savoyards unleash lavish productions of operettas and family-friendly Broadway hits that have kept the Snohomish County free of a musical-theater drought for more than 20 years. To conclude its 2011 season, the nonprofit players present the crowd-pleasing, Tony-winning Hello, Dolly!. A musical revamp of Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker, Hello, Dolly! spins the lively tale of a meddlesome widow who plays Cupid for others before setting her own romantic sights on grumpy Horace Vandergelder. Chock-full of classic songs by Jerry Herman, such as "It Only Takes A Moment" and "Put on Your Sunday Clothes," Hello, Dolly! gets toes tapping and spirits soaring infinitely more effectively than its failed sequel, Adios, Effigy!
As one of the oldest operating theaters in the state of Washington, the posh Historic Everett Theatre has earned its significant moniker, thriving since 1901 in an ever-changing world of volcanoes and disco. Seating at the majestic venue is first come, first served by reservation.
