Farewell to the 25th

Farewell to the 25th


When September hits, the Follies has sadly come to an end. The 25th season entitled The Race, The Voice, and the Gentlewomen had a great run.

The man who started it all, Ray Furlotte, watched over this season and now has a few final words:

I personally want to thank everyone who worked on this show to make it such a memorable season:

Brian Turner who wrote the script, Drew Chale and Boris Vdovine who wrote the music,  RJ Peters for bringing life to the words and music, Lisa Henderson for finding the actors, the actors with a wide variety of  creative contribution and skills, Shirley and Larry McLim who got the stage and actors visibly ready with a great sets and costumes, our sponsors, the city of Rossland who supplied a venue for our work, and all the folks at Seed Marketing who helped to increase our attendance by 30%.

We are already talking about plans for next year. People have expressed interest in writing and music for the 2012 show. We hope to attract actors and musicians from the eastern sector of Canada for the new season as well.

Jason Whitley will keep our website up to date so check the site regularly for news regarding auditions. We will have that information up soon.”

And to our loyal fans, we’ll see you next year!
