Follies this weekend

By Don Bryant

The Tallassee Music Boosters’ 20th Annual Fabulous Follies will take the stage on Feb. 17-18 at the Tallassee High School Auditorium. This hilarious evening of lip-sync craziness is the brainchild of Pat Merrett, who does it all (producing, directing, acting, prop- and scenery-making, choreographing) as a fundraiser for the schools’ bands and choirs.

This year’s production reprises some favorites from years past, mixed in among lots of new skits. There will be some Carol Burnett, Lily Tomlin and Jeanne Robertson;  Dorf will attempt to press over 400 pounds; Soul Man is on the agenda, along with Ghostbusters and King Tut.

Besides Dorf’s amazing athletic prowess, audiences will be treated to Olympic-quality synchronized swimming and gymnastics, and an introduction to the Rio games. Hard to imagine this will be happening right there on stage. Gotta see it to believe it!

There will also be numbers by some tiny tots and Southside Middle School band students, and New Image Show Choir will perform (real talent: no lip-syncing there).

It’s a guaranteed fun evening for the entire family. Tickets ($5) will be available at the door both nights. Performance will begin at 7:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday.
