—Dayton Most Metro

Muse Machine’s Hello, Dolly! played to a string of enthusiastic audiences and standing ovations January 11-14, 2018. Bravo to the 150 young people from high schools, middle schools and elementary schools across Western Ohio who dedicated three months to creating this uniquely Muse version of a musical theatre classic. Thank you as well to the creative team, legions of parent volunteers, generous sponsors and dedicated Board and staff who collectively comprise the village that brought Dolly back where she belongs.
