Students at Barrington High School will be singing and dancing to two of the most catchy showtunes on planet Earth this weekend as they take the stage for performances of this year’s spring musical, Hello Dolly.  Tickets are available and can be purchased at the door or online, but before you read on, HEED THIS WARNING:  If you listen to the songs below, they’ll be stuck in your head as you tap your toes all weekend…

I thought you might like to put a little spring in your step! First, here’s the scoop on this weekend’s performances. Students will perform Hello Dolly at the Barrington High School Auditorium, 616 W. Main Street in Barrington, Illinois. The show starts at 7:30 tonight and tomorrow night. (Friday, March 2nd and Saturday, March 3rd). There are also 2:30 p.m. matinees tomorrow and Sunday. (Saturday, March 3rd and Sunday, March 4th). Tickets cost $12.00 for adults, $8 for children and students, $5 for senior citizens and BHS student’s can see the show for only $1.  You can purchase your tickets at the door or online by clicking HERE.  If you have questions, call the Ticket Office at 847-842-6500 and, for a quick peek at one of the show’s dress rehearsals, check out this student-produced video preview.

One of the songs I’m most eager to hear the BHS performers sing this weekend is one of my all-time favorites and the musical’s title track, Hello Dolly.

Waiters:
We feel the room swayin’
For the band’s playin’
One of your old fav’rite songs from ‘way back when

Dolly:
So here’s my hat fellas
I’m stayin’ where I’m at, fellas

Waiters:
Promise you’ll never go away again

Anyone out there know the words?  Even my 3-year-old daughter sings the lyrics to this one and Louis Armstrong’s version is one of the very best!

And how can you forget this old-school classic?  Is there any song more chipper than Put On Your Sunday Clothes?

Children:
Put on your Sunday clothes when you feel down and out
Strut down the street and have your picture took

Women:
Dressed like a dream your spirits seem to turn about

Townspeople, All:
That Sunday shine is a certain sign
That you feel as fine as you look!

I think I need to start a new tradition of singing this one to my kids when they wake up on Sunday mornings.  How long do you think it’ll take for that to drive them crazy? 😉

Happy International Women’s Day to all women who live with, or care for someone with, mental illness. According to NAMI, “1 in 8 women experiences depression in their lifetime; twice the rate as men, regardless of race or ethnic background.” Furthermore, “some experiences are unique to women, including post-partum changes, infertility, and hormonal fluctuations throughout their lives." Access to mental health care is critically important, as shown during COVID-19, as well as the equality of access to it.
