The Albemarle Players, C-VILLE’s Best Musical winners for two years running, are going for a trifecta this weekend when Hello, Dolly!, the Tony Award-winning musical based on Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker, hits the stage. Originally called Dolly, A Damned Exasperating Woman, the show’s title was shortened when Broadway producer David Merrick heard Louis Armstrong’s version of “Hello, Dolly.” Half a century later, director Fay E. Cunningham is banking on Armstrong’s prescience when he sang, “You’re still glowin’/You’re still crowin’/You’re still goin’ strong.”

Thursday-Sunday 5/2-5  $13.50-17.50, 8pm (3pm on Sunday). Albemarle High School Auditorium, 2775 Hydraulic Rd. (800) 594-8499 or ahspresents.com.
