Hillsboro High School will be presenting the musical Hello, Dolly! at 7:30 p.m. on Nov 8, 9, and 10 in the high school auditorium.

In 1890s New York City, the bold and enchanting widow Dolly Levi (Jenna Hinerman) is a socialite-turned-matchmaker. Her latest clients seeking assistance are the cantankerous “half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder (Avery Unruh) and a young artist named Ambrose (Charlie Major), who is in love with Horace’s niece, Ermengarde (Malory Ediger). Dolly’s scheming soon involves Horace’s employees (Dillon Boldt and Caleb Rempel) as well as two New York hatmakers (Callie Arnold and Eva Franz), as she tries to cover up her own secret romantic designs.
