Break a Leg Presents Hello Dolly!

Don't let the parade pass you by. Join us this July and be wowed by South Shore's youth talent as we present an esteemed classic — choreographed our special guest, Broadway legend Richard Riaz Yoder.

Richard, the original cast member of Some Like It Hot and current Associate Choreographer of Lempicka on Broadway, has spent countless hours with the BAL cast — crafting pieces that not only challenge the individual growth of each student, but pay homage to the authentic choreography of an iconic masterpiece.

Jerry Herman’s energetic Hello, Dolly! is a musical filled with charisma and with heart. Matchmaker Dolly Levi is a widow, a matchmaker, and also a professional meddler --but everything changes when she decides that the next match she needs to make is to find someone for herself. Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Hello Dolly! is boisterous and charming from start to finish. Hello, Dolly! features such memorable songs as “Before the Parade Passes By,” “It Only Takes a Moment,” “Put on Your Sunday Clothes,” and - of course - the title number, “Hello, Dolly!” Dolly herself is one of the strongest and richest starring roles for a woman ever written for the musical theatre, and famous Dolly Levis have included Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, Pearl Bailey, Mary Martin, Barbra Streisand, and most recently, Bette Midler and Bernadette Peters.
