The Matchmaker

About The Matchmaker

A rich widower, Vandergelder, wants to re-marry for convenience. His niece wants to marry for true love, but Vandergelder won't allow it. Vandergelder's assistant is looking for excitement rather than romance.

Along comes The Matchmaker, Dolly, to sort it all out... but whilst pretending to help Vandergelder find a bride, she plans to marry him herself!

In 1964, songs were added to this classic comedy and it was re-named "Hello Dolly!" - "The Matchmaker" has the same plot, characters and laughs as it's musical counterpart, but now you can see the original Dolly working her magic!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Matchmaker are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
