The Follies 2017
Play Reading Festival Winners
Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 19 at 2 p.m., join The Players Follies and witness brand new plays ranging from one minute monologues to 10 minute scenes performed in readers’ theatre format. Twelve carefully chosen short plays will grace the stage in the intimate Backstage black-box theatre. Tickets for each show are $12.
The Players Follies is a 50 + performing troupe who represent The Players Theatre throughout the community and on the mainstage of the theatre as a seasoned wing of the arts organization, with several staged productions. The Follies also serves as an outreach performing troupe to bring live entertainment to those who cannot travel to theatres. With so many performance opportunities, this troupe is an excellent outlet for performers to gain camaraderie, support and the chance to express themselves theatrically…and you can join this active and vibrant group! The group is in its sixth year as a part of The Players Centre and is open to anyone who has an interest in singing, dancing and/or acting.
