"'Hello Dolly!' is just a beautiful story," stated Susan Adams-Johnson, Director of Production of Opera & Musical Theatre at SNU, when asked why this particular musical was selected as the fall musical production. On top of the well-known story itself, the SNU music department also has two very strong, gifted singers that fit perfectly with this musical that is family-friendly and entertaining.
