MainStage Irving-Las Colinas closes its 2015-16 Light the Lights! season with Thornton Wilder's classic comedy, THE MATCHMAKER. The production will open on July 22 and run through August 6 at the Irving Arts Center's Dupree Theater (3333 N. MacArthur Blvd., Irving, TX 75062). BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast in costume below!

Horace Vandergelder, a wealthy merchant in 19th Century Yonkers, NY, decides to take a wife and employs a matchmaker, Mrs. Dolly Levi. Dolly subsequently becomes involved with two of Vandergelder's clerks, several lovely ladies, and the headwaiter at an expensive restaurant where this swift farce runs headlong into hilarious complications. After everyone gets straightened out romantically, will Mr. Vandergelder find himself affianced to the astute Dolly Levi herself? The warhorse play that inspired the musical Hello, Dolly!
