When the curtain goes up on September 20, The Spectacular Senior Follies will be presenting its special anniversary production, “Encore! Everything Old Is New Again.” A tribute to the longevity of the Follies, the show will highlight its best of the first 10 years by presenting many of the favorite songs, dances and comedy acts that entertained the audiences over the years.
The Follies opened its first show on the stage of the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts in 2008 and nobody could have predicted the success the show would have that year and nobody dreamed that the Follies would be celebrating a decade of entertaining the Dallas area with a musical revue featuring entertainers over the age of 55. But, here we are, bigger and better than ever imagined.
Much of the success of the Follies is due to our Celebration Magazine cover stars, Andy and Judy Michlin. Andy has been musical director of the Follies from its first days and has directed his band on stage for all of the years of the shows. His lovely wife, Judy, has been one of the beautiful showgirls the Follies features every year. They truly embody the true spirit of the Follies cast.
The Follies’ anniversary show will include many favorite performers, and is very excited to once again present Mark Carroll and Trella Hart. Our cast of talented performers comes from many different professional backgrounds such as Las Vegas, Broadway, Hollywood and other places across the country and all enjoy performing and showing their talents to other seniors in the area.
Being a 501-C-3 charity, the mission of the Spectacular Senior Follies is to preserve the traditions and legacy of the American performing arts for future generations, provide community outreach that inspires all age groups, educate by example and reinforce the vibrancy of seniors by presenting high quality performances with senior entertainers 55 and older. Each cast member lives up to this mission with every performance.
The Follies will run 5 performances in Dallas at the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts from Thursday, September 20 through Sunday, September 23 with matinees daily at 2pm. There will also be an evening show on Saturday, September 22 at 7pm.
At Firewheel Town Village Apartments in Garland, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
