Clayton Youth Theater follows their highly successful run of Hairspray with The Matchmaker, a comedy by Thornton Wilder. The play will be performed on February 28 and March 1-2, 2013 at 7:30pm at The Clayton Center Auditorium.
Horace Vandergelder is a wealthy merchant in Yonkers who decides it’s time to take a wife. He employs the irrepressible busybody Dolly Gallagher Levi to help him find the perfect match. Through Dolly’s subtle machinations, several unlikely couples come together to find happiness in 19th-century New York. This wonderful play was the inspiration for the Broadway musical Hello Dolly!
Tickets for each show are $10 adults, $5 students 18 and under.
