Cast of Hello, Dolly!

The cast of Hello, Dolly! is excited to bring this energetic musical to Utah audiences! In order to get to know them better, we asked some cast members a few fun questions!

Dori Waymer (Minnie Fay)

Who do you want to play you in a movie about your life?

  • Shamelessly, I think I wanna play myself in the movie about my life haha!

When did you first perform?

  • I first performed in a musical when I was eight!

 

Myles Woolstenhulme (Ambrose)

What’s your perfect Sunday no-show day look like?

  • My perfect Sunday no-show day would start with a delicious brunch at my favorite restaurant, Trolley Cottage Cafe. Later, I would probably go for a drive up the mountain with the windows down so I can feel the spring air all around me. I would finish the day at home with my partner Izzy, eating a homemade pizza with some wine and a good movie.

Besides this one, what’s your favorite stage show?

  • My favorite stage show has to be “An American in Paris.” I loved getting to be involved in a show that uses so much dance to tell the story. I think the score by Gershwin, along with the dancing just make the perfect recipe for the stage, and the audience seems to always love it. 10/10 would do that show any day.

 

Alexander Mendoza (Cornelius Hackl)

Do you have a ritual before you step out before the curtain goes up?

  • I definitely put on pop music and dance around like a goofball. Once I get all of that energy out I find a moment to thank God for being able to do this and pray.

What’s your perfect Sunday no-show day look like?

  • Probably drinking coffee with a friend and catching up OR watching TV shows all day with my dog. We love “Downton Abbey.”

 

Hannah Balagot (Ermengarde)

If you had a magic wand, what show would you do next?

  • “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”

When you have a five-minute break during rehearsal, what do you spend that time doing?

  • Inhaling a snack!

 

Paige Davis (Dolly Levi)

Who do you want to play you in a movie about your life? 

  • My first thought was Jennifer Love Hewitt because everyone tells me we look so much alike. But my vote would go to Marissa Tomei.

Get a new pet, buy an air fryer, learn to make sourdough, or acquire a foreign language: which did you do during the pandemic? 

  • I did none of those things. Patrick and I spent our time binging virtually every show available to mankind. I popped a LOT of popcorn!

 

Kelly McCormic (Irene Molloy)

My favorite stage show is…

  • Anything choreographed by Justin Peck…*swoon*

What I do when I’m not doing theatre…

  • Too many things to list, but my favorite is spending time with my husband and our angel of a cat.

 

Michael J. Rios (Barnaby)

Get a new pet, buy an air fryer, learn to make sourdough, or acquire a foreign language: which did you do during the pandemic?

  • Got a new air fryer

Who’s the funniest person in the cast in real life?

  • Dori Waymer, who plays Minnie Fay in the show.
