“Hello, Dolly!” seniors say goodbye to GRB stage


For seniors in the Quirk’s Players production of “Hello, Dolly!” on March 7, 8 and 9, at G. Ray Bodley High School in Fulton, the musical also signals a bittersweet goodbye.

The show marks a farewell to the high school stage for those graduating, but they wouldn’t trade their experiences onstage for anything.

Pictured are some of the seniors from the Quirk’s Players cast of “Hello, Dolly!” to be performed on March 7, 8 and 9. Left to right are: Yann Taddei, a foreign exchange student from France who is part of the ensemble; Alexis Pawlewicz, Dolly Gallagher Levi; Katelyn Caza, Ernestina Morey; Mitch Lalik, Horace Vandergelder; Michaela Houck, Minnie Fay; and Amanda Trumbly, Irene Molloy.

For some, their history in the Quirk’s Players goes back as far as elementary school when several of the players were cast as orphans in the production of “Annie” when they were only in fourth grade.

“This is the last of the orphans,” said Tom Briggs, director of show, “But the good news is that there are several young parts in ‘Dolly,’ ensuring a new wave of future ‘Quirks.’”

For one, foreign exchange student Yann Taddei, this is his first and last show.

“I wish I was born around here,” Taddei said, “I feel like I missed so much. The more I work in the arts, the more I like it.”

“We’re very proud of all our seniors,” said Briggs, “They are a dedicated group. We will miss them greatly next year.”

The show will have performances at 7:30 p.m. on March 7, 8 and 9, with an afternoon matinee on March 9 at 2 p.m.

Tickets will be $8 for adults and $7 for senior citizens and children 12 and under.
