At the turn of the century, everyone in Yonkers, New York turns to professional meddler and matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi for advice on romance, practical matters, and everything else (“Call on Dolly”). Dolly, of course, is happy to oblige (“I Put My Hand In”).

The town’s miserly half-a-millionaire Horace Vandergelder, a widowed hay & feed dealer, seeks a second wife (“It Takes A Woman”) and hires Dolly to find him a suitable match. Though she arranges for Horace to meet the young widow Irene Molloy, Dolly clearly has her own interest in Horace—and his money. Meanwhile, a young artist named Ambrose Kemper seeks Dolly’s assistance in acquiring the hand of Vandergelder’s niece, Ermengarde.


Material To Prepare:
Be prepared to sing a song (not exceeding 32 bars) from the show sung by a character you would like to audition for or that's in your vocal range. Also, come prepared to dance with proper dance attire.
