Book by Michael Stewart
"Share in the feel-good zest of the song-and-dance fun… a tremendous generosity of spirit… this whips through the theatre like a summer breeze" Guardian
"It’s the energy and commitment of the ensemble firing on all cylinders that makes this such fun"
Following our spectacular productions of Kiss Me, Kate and My Fair Lady, we open the 2013 Summer Season with yet another multi award-winning Broadway classic: Hello Dolly! This colourful, exuberant and wildly funny adaptation of Thornton Wilder’s comedy The Matchmaker - itself a big hit at PFT in 2003 - is packed with fabulous songs by the great Jerry Herman (Mack And Mabel, Mame and La Cage Aux Folles), while Michael Stewart’s book celebrates generosity, romance and the sheer joy of life itself. Tuneful, irrepressible, unmissable!
"As Delightful Dolly dazzles in energetic spectacular – The Perthshire Advertiser
"As fine an achievement as ever, with gorgeous parasol-themed sets and costumes… excellent choreography… and the usual Pitlochry combination of a fine live band and onstage actor-musicians" The Scotsman
“The whole show glows with happiness and delight.” The Daily Telegraph
Sponsored by Mrs Rachel Cunningham and dedicated to her children.
"When staying in Pitlochry during the early part of the war, I chanced to see a stately house with a fairly large garden, quite close to the town. I at once realised that here my dream theatre might well be established in this fashionable resort right in the heart of Scotland"… John Stewart, Founder of Pitlochry Festival Theatre.
