NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Because it will take some time to repair the hurricane damage to the inside of the Rivertown Theater, the theater is moving “Hello, Dolly” into a different venue – the Solomon Theater at St. Martin’s School (225 Green Acres Rd, right off of Airline Hwy in Metairie). The theater says they are persevering and doing everything in their power to serve their patrons.

NEW PERFORMANCE DATES – OCTOBER 1, 2, 3, 8, 10. No show Sat, Oct 9.

Additional information from a theater press release:

Unfortunately, we can’t get the elaborate and oversized scenery out of our shop bc the loading dock door is damaged. But you will still experience all the wonderful song, dance, costumes, sound and lighting that were originally intended.

We are so grateful to our committed cast of actors and creative team members who have rearranged their schedules and who are eager to present this beloved show to you!

This move also means that we cannot offer reserved seating at the new venue, so all seating will be general admission. Please ignore the seating assignments on your tickets, and arrive early to ensure your choice of seats. (although much like at Rivertown, all seats in the new venue are good seats). If you had wheelchair accessible seats, you will have the same at the new venue.

We know this is not ideal, but please don’t give up on us, we’re doing our absolute best to keep the show going.

You will use your existing ticket or e-ticket for entry at your new assigned performance date according to the following schedule:​

Original Date -> NEW Date
Fri 9/10 -> Fri 10/1 7:30 p.m.
Sat 9/11 -> Sat 10/2 7:30 p.m.
