2nd Star theater company is offering audiences a lively rendition of the 1964 Tony-winning Jerry Herman classic, "Hello Dolly!" - one that seems destined to set local benchmarks. In the troupe's artfully nostalgic production at Bowie Playhouse, audiences are invited back to the 1890s, when hardworking clerks dream of sampling a swanky big-city restaurant - where their bosses and exquisitely gowned women are the clientele. Serving as director and producer, 2nd Star president Jane B. Wingard delivers an award-worthy production with a dynamic cast, strong support from musical director Joe Biddle and his pit musicians, and skilled choreography by Vince Musgrave.

Gilbert and Sullivan fans - and those not yet in their ranks - will find 2nd Star Productions' The Pirates of Penzance at Bowie Playhouse a highly entertaining show. Considered by many Gilbert and Sullivan devotees to be the best and funniest operetta ever penned by the British duo, Pirates is their only work to premiere in the United States, when in December 1879, Arthur Sullivan conducted the New York theater's orchestra. 2nd Star's current reincarnation succeeds on several levels - as a tuneful musical, a clever spoof and an old-fashioned romance that is well cast.
