Hello, Dolly!

Director/Choreographer Michael Marone & Music Director Hollie Major Baker announce Auditions for Hello, Dolly!

      Saturday, September 29, Noon to 3:00 PM
      Sunday, September 30, 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM

All roles open for anyone age 13 and up.

All those interested in auditioning should prepare 32 bars of a memorized classic music theatre song (singing from the show is acceptable). Please either bring sheet music (in the correct key) or a karaoke track. An accompanist will be provided both days.   No a capella auditions.

NOTE: The score to Hello, Dolly! will be available for use during auditions; however, we cannot guarantee "your song" will be in the key in which you wish to sing. The Original Broadway, Movie, and Broadway Revival scores have many songs written in different keys so be aware and take care when choosing your music/listening to the soundtrack.

Everyone auditioning will be asked to participate in a dance call.

Those auditioning for leading roles will be asked to stay to read from the script.

Production dates are November 24,25 / Nov. 29,30,Dec. 1,2 / Dec. 6,7,8,9 / Dec. 13,14,15,16.

Please bring all rehearsal conflict dates to auditions. No performance conflicts will be allowed.

Auditions will be held at the Music Box Dinner Playhouse, 196 Hughes St, Swoyersville, PA 18704.

Father Joe Scholarship
In 2008, the Music Box honored the memory of a dear friend by dedicating the production of “THE MUSIC MAN” to

The Reverend Joseph T. "Father Joe" Gilbert

and adding a Star in his honor to our
“Theatre of the Stars.”

We continue this memorial by asking all performers and friends of community theatre who knew and loved Father Joe to contribute to a scholarship fund so a few deserving children, who would otherwise be financially unable, can attend our Children’s Summer Theater Workshop each year. Monies collected will be added to the fund and used each year to assist identified recipients. Any amount contributed will be greatly appreciated.

You can support this scholarship program via Paypal:

Use the "Add special instructions to the seller" box to indicate your donation is for the Father Joe Scholarship.

Donations can be also be sent to the theatre:

Music Box Dinner Playhouse
196 Hughes Street
Swoyersville, PA. 18704

Checks should be made out to "Music Box Players". Please write “Father Joe Scholarship” on the envelope and on the check memo line.

Father Joe’s family and Father Sempa will be notified with a complete list of all donors, and will assist in selecting scholarship recipients.

For more information, please contact The Music Box Dinner Playhouse at 570-283-2195 or email

Music Box Costume Rental Shop
Theatrical costumes are available for rent to individuals, schools and other theatre groups!

In our 35 year history, The Music Box Players have often been recognized for presenting costumes rivaled only by professional companies.   Many of these costumes were designed and built by Music Box Costumer K.D.Love and his esteemed seamstress, Inez Williams.

With sufficient advance notice to the Music Box staff, our inventory of costumes is now available to you and your group to make your production, event, or "romantic fantasy weekend" complete.

Cost will depend on the number and complexity of costumes needed. Call the Music Box at 570-283-2195 and ask for further information.
