In Village Players’ production of “Hello, Dolly,” Dolly the matchmaker (Denise Kowalewski-Tucker of Livonia) does not always see eye-to-eye with her wealthy employer (Gary Mach of Beverly Hills).

BIRMINGHAM – Village Players of Birmingham’s second production of its 87th season, “Hello, Dolly,” plays at the Players’ Playhouse through Nov. 22
“Hello, Dolly” is arguably America’s favorite musical – a big brassy extravaganza about the exploits of a “matchmaker” at the end of the 19th century who arranges love matches and marriages for everyone, including herself. Composer Jerry Herman’s songs are more than hummable; they are memorable. Who can forget the chorus breaking out in the title song as Dolly struts her stuff?
Director Michael Gravame notes that in spite of its being an audience favorite, “Dolly” has not been produced by area community theaters for a number of years.
“‘Dolly’ is not an easy play to produce,” he said in a press release.
“This is a big, elaborate musical, and it will be fabulous because we are putting our best foot forward. I want to thank all the cast and crew for their hard work and dedication.
“Hello, Dolly” will play at 8 p.m. Nov. 13, 14, 20 and 21., and at 2 p.m. Nov. 14, 15, 21, 22. The Village Players Playhouse is located at 34660 Woodward in Birmingham (2 blocks south of Maple). For more information, call 248-644-2075 or visit http://www.birminghamvillageplayers.com.
