By Christina Mary

“Well, were all rehearsed,

we wont blow our lines,

and we’re sure not nervous because,

of the thrill that’ll getcha,

when we get our picture,

on the cover of the Horsefly Buzz

(or Tribune Weekend) or the Tribune!”

These are lines from one of the songs we sing in this year’s Horsefly Follies show After Hours which begins a two-weekend run tonight!

Its going to be a great show!

Be prepared to laugh at our antics, and sing along with the cast of The Horsefly Follies.
