The Arts Center of Cannon County presents Hello Dolly.

Directed by Matt Smith, Choreography by Regina Ward
Music Direction by Nicholas True

She successfully matches many others in the city, including Horace's niece and two clerks, but everything seems to go wrong when it comes to matching Horace.
