After bringing down the house for 30 years, the Greenville Follies will be taking their final bow. The 30th Anniversary show scheduled for 28-29 April 2017 will be the final Follies Fundraiser. You won’t want to miss the fun! Greenville Follies is a musical revue that raises funds for community projects. The cast and crew are composed entirely of local residents. Follies is glitzy, fast paced entertainment where local talent gets star billing in comedy and production numbers that rival professional stage shows. The Follies fund-raiser started in 1987. There have been a total of 18 shows raising over $680,000 for local non-profit organizations. The 2017 Follies proceeds will benefit The Hunt County Children’s Advocacy Center.
