Senior Follies returns to Steel River Playhouse

Back by popular demand, students in the Senior Educational program will perform for one weekend only at Steel River Playhouse, 245 E. High Street in Pottstown.

A perennial favorite, this time they take on Chez Follies for a revue with music, dance, comedy, and pathos – everything you’ve come to expect from these “mature” adults. Save the dates – the show runs May 3rd and 4th only!

The scene is a club in danger of closing down. The performers have good (and bad) memories of days gone by, and they don’t want to see their old club be torn down. Maybe if they put on one more show – everybody will know why this club should be saved. Can they do it? Will they save it? Come to CHEZ FOLLIES and find out!

This production was written by Pat Rhoads and her senior cohorts from the cast, so you know there will be surprises in store! The production is facilitated by Deborah Snow, who does her best to keep the hijinxs organized! The cast includes Rosemarie Kidon (Boyertown), Joanne Arnold (Spring City), Elizabeth Bauer (Pottstown), Mary Jimick (Spring City), Norman Cohn and Laura Cohn (Pottstown), Mason Craig (Pottstown) Bonnie Heath (Pottstown), Pat Rhoads (Pottstown), Margaret Curry (Boyertown), Ellie Brown (St. Peters), Bob Roebuck (Pottstown), Marian Wray (East Coventry), Earl Boehmer (Pottstown), and Joyce Foster(Pottstown).
