Former Powder River Playhouse members ready for ‘Hello, Dolly!’ performance

For the first time in a year, former members of the Powder River Playhouse will be on stage this weekend performing the musical “Hello, Dolly!”

Although the Powder River Playhouse had to close up shop, its members are going forward with their planned production of the musical “Hello, Dolly!”

The performers and crew exemplify the theater adage that “the show must go on.” That’s because this weekend’s opening of “Hello, Dolly!” comes a couple of months removed from the Powder River Playhouse having to shut its doors in part because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The playhouse had not put on a production in about a year.
