The Matchmaker
A homegrown literary hero, Thornton Wilder graduated from our own Berkeley High School in 1915 and hit the ground running. Years after his "Our Town" and "The Skin of Our Teeth" both won Pulitzer Prizes he reworked an older play of his into the rambunctious farce "The Matchmaker," opening it on Broadway in 1955. We missed our chance to present it then  by two years and tens of thousands of dollars  but with the fates fully aligned now, we are proud to show at last Mr. Wilder's winning creation to our loyal Berkeley audience.

It's a farce with a lot of heart - along with slamming doors, mistaken identities, and hiding in closets and under tables - as the irrepressible Dolly Levi schemes to match the penny-pinching Horace Vandergelder with... herself. Vandergelder's young niece also hopes to marry a poor artist, it's a union only Ms. Levi can make happen  or can she?

Showing Fridays and Saturdays July 18th through Augst 16th, with an extra show on Thursday, August 14th, all shows at 8 p.m.
