Holly Jolly Follies holds all-cast meeting Monday

Nov. 2, 2019 — Have you always wanted to be in the amazing Holly Jolly Follies? Now is your chance! 

The 2019 Follies All Cast Meeting will be held Monday, Nov. 4, at 6:30 p.m. at the CROW Center for the Performing Arts, 3120 Highway 101.

All are welcome to participate in the ensemble group scenes and numbers, and those who are new to the stage are encouraged to join the fun. 

The title of this year’s show, which is penned by Rose Ellen Jacobson, is “Finding Joy At Christmastime.”

The theme centers around an unexpected and long overdue romance for one of the Follies’ most beloved characters.

“All of your favorite Follies friends will be back to entertain you, as well as some fun new faces,” said the shows director, Melanie Heard. “This year’s Follies is sure to put a huge smile on your face and a song in your heart!” 

Ensemble Rehearsals occur evenings, generally 6:30 to 9 p.m., throughout all of November, and are limited, so they are mandatory.

“Please be ready to commit to all of the ensemble rehearsals, and bring your calendar. We promise you’ll have a lot of fun!” added Heard.

Not all cast members are called every night. Schedules are handed out at the all cast meeting. To note, there will be no all cast rehearsals Wednesday through Sunday of Thanksgiving week.

Tech week begins Dec. 2 and is also mandatory for all cast members.

Holly Jolly Follies will be performed at the Florence Events Center, 715 Quince St., Dec. 6 through 8. Friday and Saturday’s evening shows will be at 7 p.m. and Sunday’s matinee will be at 2 p.m.
