After Hours: them for Horsefly Follies 2013

The Horsefly community is in the final weeks of rehearsal for its ever-popular Horsefly Follies.

The Horsefly community is in the final weeks of rehearsal for its ever-popular Horsefly Follies.

The 2013 Horsefly Follies coming up April 26-27 and May 3-4 will be the 29th production for the The Horsefly Musical Theatre Group.

Friday, April 26 the show is geared for children.

The other three shows are for adults, says co-director Christina Mary.

Tickets for the children’s Friday evening shows starting at 7 p.m. sharp will be available at the door for $2 for children and $6 for adults.

Saturday shows for adults start at 7:30 p.m. sharp. Tickets are $12.50 and are available at Clarkes Store.

There will also be two other short windows for pre-ticket sales at the Horsefly Community Hall on Saturday, April 6 from 10 a.m. to noon, and at the Seniors’ Activity Centre on Fourth Avenue in Williams Lake on Saturday, April 6 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

The theme for this year’s follies is After Hours.

“Follies is traditionally a collection of  short humorous skits and songs that are sure to tickle your funny bone,” says Mary, who is co-directing the production with Paul Williams. “This year is no exception!”

She says the cast has adapted short skits compiled by herself, Paul Redford, and Curt and Sandy Tugnum.

“What happens After Hours?” Mary says. “We used our imaginations!”

Actors this season are Paul Redford, Sandy Tugnum, Dawn Bigg, Ernie Gruhs,  Christina Mary, Walter Hlookoff, and Jeff Jenner. Melissa Vaughn is producing.

This community fundraiser will also include a live auction and door prizes at half-time on each of the adult performance nights.

Items on the action block have been donated by local artists and artisans and include stained glass by Joanne Brown; hand woven basket by Christina Mary; horseshoe candle holders by Darcy Jackson; acrylic painting by Paul Redford; quilted item by Chris Kenny; framed print by Maureen LeBourdais; throw blanket by Laurel  Reynolds; wood turned item by Murray Manuel; barn-board bird house by Bun Wright; and a sun catcher by Maureen Chappell.

The auction items will be on display at the Anvil Pub during April.

The Horsefly Follies is a non-profit group that raises funds through the follies and other events to help support the operation and community programs held at the  Horsefly  Community Hall.
