MONTE VISTA — Tickets are now on sale for the upcoming production of “Hello Dolly,” which is being presented by the Monte Vista High School Drama Club and Rocky Mountain Stage Productions.

The show will be staged at Bill Metz Central Auditorium at 7:15 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16 and Saturday, Nov. 17. A matinee will be presented at 2:15 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18. This show is a combined performance of local school students and community members.

Tickets are $7 for adults, and $3 for students and seniors 65 and older,and can be purchased at the door the days of the performance or reserved by calling Fassett at 852-3385 or Crites at 852-5337.

The production is being co-directed by Monte Vista High School Drama Club sponsor Tami Fassett who has been directing local high school productions for the past 18 years, and veteran director Charlotte Crites, who has directed community theatre productions for the past 30 years.

Fassett has presented several drama, comedy and Shakespeare shows as well as presenting several Broadway reviews, and Crites has directed community theatre productions for Rocky Mountain Stage Productions.  

The company started in Monte Vista 33 years ago under the direction of the late Richard Talley from Alamosa, along with local community members Margaret Rominger and Suzanne Gosar.  According to Crites, their first full scale musical production, Camelot, was held in Central Auditorium, so she felt it was only fitting that the last big musical production she will direct will be held in the same building.

Fassett says this is also the last big production that she will direct, although both she and Crites will continue working on their small venue shows.  Tami will direct high school students to present more drama, comedy and Shakespeare.  The drama club has acquired Central Auditorium as their new performance venue and will turn it into a fine performing arts center for theatre as well as concerts and, in the future, outside performances coming to Monte Vista.

Crites will continue to present musical cabarets with the theatre company, putting together specialized shows and singing for various organizations, as well as organizing fundraisers to help the community.

Come and enjoy a fun-filled performance as Dolly Levi weaves her magic spell as a modern day, turn-of-the-century matchmaker.  

Enjoy such music as “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Dancing,” “It Only Takes A Woman,” “Put On Your Sunday Clothes” and more.
