by Brooke Arnold


hello dollyOhio University Lancaster Theatre has announced auditions for the upcoming musical Hello, Dolly! The show opens on July 22, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. as a featured event during the historic Lancaster Festival. More performances will run Thursday, August 2 – Sunday, August 5, 2018.

Hello, Dolly!, which featured Bette Midler in the title role in the recent 2017 revival on Broadway, bursts with humor, romance, high-energy dancing, and some of the greatest songs in musical theater history. The romantic and comic exploits of Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and “woman who arranges things,” are certain to thrill and entertain audiences again and again. The show includes memorable and well-known songs such as “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Ribbons Down My Back,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Elegance,” “It Only Takes a Moment,” and the classic number “Hello, Dolly!”

A. Victor Jones, Artistic Director and Lecturer of Theatre for Ohio University Lancaster is thrilled to be announcing auditions for Hello, Dolly! He says, “I have been to New York to see Bette Midler as Dolly Levi and will be returning to New York on April 14 to see Bernadette Peters in the role, all to prepare for auditions.”


Auditions will be held April 27, 28, and 29, 2018 in the Wagner Theatre. For more audition information and information on what to prepare, visit the Ohio University Lancaster Theatre audition page:
