From New York to Paris, from ragtime to jazz, The Hello Girls chronicles the story of America’s first women soldiers. These intrepid heroines served as bi-lingual 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. Music and lyrics by Peter Mills, book by Peter Mills and Cara Reichel, both Princeton alumni. Directed by Princeton senior Kate Semmens and featuring seniors Molly Bremer and Violet Gautreau, alongside a company of twelve student actor-musicians.
