Hamilton drama presents “The Matchmaker”

Hamilton High School Drama invites community members to attend “The Matchmaker” by Thornton Wilder Nov. 12-15 at the Hamilton Fine Arts Center (HFAC). Shows are at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Horace Vandergelder, a wealthy merchant in 19th century Yonkers, N.Y., is in search of a wife and employs a matchmaker, Mrs. Dolly Levi. Dolly subsequently becomes involved with two of Vandergelder’s clerks, several lovely ladies and the headwaiter at an expensive restaurant where this swift farce runs headlong into hilarious complications. After everyone gets straightened out romantically, Vandergelder finds himself affianced to the astute Dolly Levi herself.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students under 18 years of age and senior citizens over age 60. They may be purchased 30 minutes prior to the show at the HFAC box office. Please note only cash and checks can be accepted at the ticket window. Tickets may also be purchased online at the HFAC website www.hamiltonfineartscenter.com. The Hamilton Fine Arts Center is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex.
