Hello Girls Musical at Kennedy Center

This Original Musical Honors the U.S. Army’s Female Telephone Operators,  Who Played Key Role in World War I. Free Mini-Concert at the National World War I Memorial will also take place.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tickets are now on sale for the critically-acclaimed musical “THE HELLO GIRLS” which will play in Washington DC on Tuesday, May 7th at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, at the Terrace Theater at 7:30pm.

The show tells the true story of the first women soldiers in the U.S. Army. These women served on the front lines during World War I, acting as bi-lingual Signal Corps Telephone Operators, and played a key role in the American combat effort. Deployed to France, they connected over 26 million calls and remained to assist during the post-war period, and for the Treaty of Versailles that officially ended the war. Colloquially known as the “Hello Girls,” over thirty of the women received individual commendations, and two made the ultimate sacrifice for their country while in Army service.

This special one-night-only performance of THE HELLO GIRLS is a staged concert produced by NYC’s Prospect Theater Company, which commissioned, developed and premiered the musical Off-Broadway in 2018.  The production earned multiple Drama Desk and Outer Critics’ Circle Award nominations during its initial run.

A majority of the original Off-Broadway cast and creative team is reuniting for this engagement.  The show features music and lyrics by award-winning composer Peter Mills, with script by Mills and Cara Reichel.  Choreography is by Christine O’Grady and music direction is by Ben Moss, and the production is directed by Cara Reichel.

Tickets are available at the Kennedy Center Box Office, by phone (202) 467-4600 and online at kennedy-center.orgFor all other ticket-related customer service inquiries, call the Advance Sales Box Office at (202) 416-8540.

The show is a partner-project supported by the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission, and the Doughboy Foundation. The Centennial Commission was established by the U.S. Congress in 2013, to create public awareness regarding America’s involvement, and sacrifice, in World War I. Among the Commission’s, and Doughboy Foundation’s, efforts are to advocate to Congress to award the original Hello Girls the Congressional Gold Medal for their extraordinary wartime service. That advocacy effort is ongoing.

In advance of the Kennedy Center ticketed performance, there will be a free family-friendly mini-concert hosted by the Centennial Commission and the Doughboy Foundation, performed by The Hello Girls cast, at the National World War I Memorial in Washington, DC.  This special sneak-peek event will take place on Sunday, May 5th, at 4:00pm (EDT). Event is free of charge, no tickets are required, and it is open to the public.
