ISU Summer Theatre Program to Present Classic Musical “Hello, Dolly!”


Idaho State University’s College of Arts & Letters will present Jerry Herman’s Tony-Award-winning “Hello, Dolly!” as the 2018 Summer Musical. The show opens on June 13 with a 2 p.m. matinee performance. Additional performances will take place on June 14, 15, 16, 18, 21, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. All performances will be in the L.E. and Thelma E. Stephens Performing Arts Center Beverly B. Bistline Thrust Theatre. 

The “Hello, Dolly!" musical follows the story of Dolly Gallagher Levi, a strong-willed matchmaker who makes her living through what she calls "meddling,” matchmaking with numerous sidelines. The musical follows Dolly as she tries to find Horace Vandergelder, a widower and half-millionaire, a spouse.

The show features numerous beloved hit songs, including “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Ribbons Down My Back,” “Dancing,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” “It Only Takes a Moment” and the title song “Hello, Dolly.”

"Hello, Dolly!" is one of the most enduring musical theatre hits, with four Broadway revivals and international success. It was adapted into the 1969 film "Hello, Dolly!" that secured seven Academy Awards and won three. The production will also feature a live orchestra.

Tickets for the June 13 performance at 2 p.m. are $5 each and are available at the ISU Box Office. Additional performance tickets are $15 for adults, $14 for faculty and staff, $10 for children and $7 for ISU students with a Bengal ID. Tickets are available at and (208) 282-3595.
