Where? The Polacek Pavilion at People's Natural Gas Park
When? Friday, Sunday, Monday - all show times are moved to 8 PM. Is the facility covered? Yes! This is a lovely outdoor performance space that will also protect our patrons in case of any rain. In the event of any lightning, we will delay the performance until it is appropriate to continue.
Seating: General admission. First come, first served for seat placement. We ask that while you may sit near your party but leave 6 ft between yourselves and other parties. Seating is pre situated to compliment this arrangement.
In compliance with the guidelines for the health and safety of our performers and audience members, performances of “The Hello Girls” will be moved outside to the Polacek Pavilion at People’s Natural Gas Park. The venue has covered seating to protect all patrons from any potential rain. Ticket sales will still be limited to 180 patrons to stay within the state mandates and, as a result of the move, we have elected to cancel our Thursday, July 30th performance. Performances will be held on Friday, July 31st, Sunday, August 2nd, and Monday, August 3rd at 8:00 PM. Please take note of the altered start times from what is stated on your ticket.

Any Thursday tickets not exchanged will be automatically refunded at the end of our final performance.

Seating is limited to 180 Patrons since we are limited to 250 participants including actors and staff.
Seating is socially distanced general admission. The seats will not be assigned. Audience members may sit with their party but should otherwise socially distance from other patrons.
Those with preexisting medical conditions or otherwise compromised immune systems are advised to use their best discretion when deciding whether to attend.
All guests are required to wear masks at any time they are not able to social distance.
The originally planned Spaghetti Luncheon for the Sunday performance will not be rescheduled. We look forward to welcoming our Gold Card members to continue this tradition at future High School Musicals at Richland.
Richland High School was the first amateur group to apply for rights for this brand new musical which tells a powerful American story. Our performance will mark the Pennsylvania Premiere of the show and one of the first amateur productions.
From New York to Paris, from ragtime to jazz, an ensemble of actors chronicles the story of America’s first women soldiers in a new musical by Prospect Theater Company. These intrepid heroines served as bilingual telephone operators on the front lines, helping turn the tide of World War I. They then returned home to fight a decades-long battle for equality and recognition, paving the way for future generations. THE HELLO GIRLS celebrates the centennial of these groundbreaking women.
