Chisago Lakes Baptist puts on ‘Hello, Dolly!’

School production set for next weekend


The Broadway classic “Hello, Dolly!” will be brought to life by the talented cast of Chisago Lakes Baptist School May 2-4. Performances will be at 7 p.m. each night.

As the classic musical comedy goes, flamboyant matchmaker Dolly Levi, portrayed by Victoria Bennett, arrives in New York City to arrange a marriage for wealthy Horace Vandergelder, portrayed by Justin Keck. Dolly herself ends up falling for Vandergelder, and must find a way to woo him.

The performance includes popular toe-tapping numbers written by Jerry Herman like “Elegance” and “Call on Dolly,” which capture a humor that will not soon fade from memory. This family friendly performance is directed by Chris Young.

Purchase tickets by calling (651) 257-4587 ext. 25. General admission seating costs $8 a ticket and reserved seating is $10 a ticket.

Thursday night is family night, and the Friday and Saturday performances include free desserts at intermission.
