Glamorous costumes, dazzling sets and huge dance numbers await audiences at Gresham High School’s production of “Hello, Dolly!”

The iconic American musical centers on Dolly Levi, a big-hearted matchmaker who pairs up New York ladies and gentlemen in the 1890s.

Amid the matchmaking, Dolly sets herself up with Horace Vandergelder, a well-known “half a millionaire.”

“The play is about taking chances and doing something you wouldn’t ordinarily (do), instead of living with the day-to-day monotony of life,” said senior Arianne Melton, who plays Dolly. “It’s about true love.”

Closing performances run at 7 p.m. Nov. 29-30 and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1, in the Gresham High School auditorium, 1200 N. Main Ave.

The performance features a cast of 50, an orchestra of 20 and 50 additional crew members.
