The Overture Center’s Tommy Awards Program has named the St. Ambrose Academy production of Hello, Dolly! an Outstanding Musical! This award is considered to be the highest honor a school can receive within the Tommy Awards Program, as it recognizes the achievement of excellence within all aspects of the production.
