The countdown to the holidays has officially begun. Fight the sweater weather temptation to stay indoors and start your holiday celebrations early with these weekend events.

“Hello Dolly”

A night out on the town along with seeing “Hello, Dolly” is likely to be a match made in heaven, just like the ones made by matchmaker Dolly Levi. It’s impossible to resist watching the story of Dolly finding a bride for businessman Horace Vandergelder unfold on the stage. Say hello to Dolly and the rest of the cast at the Hale Center Theater in Orem.
