  • MVNU Theatre Presents “The Matchmaker”

    MOUNT VERNON, Ohio – Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s theatre program, MVNU Theatre, presents “The Matchmaker” written by Thornton Wilder and directed by Keely Heyl. Wilder is best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning plays “Our Town” and “The Skin of Our Teeth.” In this comedic play that inspired the musical “Hello, Dolly!,” a wealthy merchant hires a matchmaker to help him find a wife. Hilarity ensues as she becomes entangled in mischief with two of the merchant’s clerks, several ladies, and a pair of waiters at the finest restaurant in town.
