We are FRIVOLOUS FOLLIES – a group of exciting and talented individuals who aim to emulate the nostalgia of Vaudeville, all while raising money for local animal groups. We love to entertain, and help those who cannot speak for themselves. So far we have been able to raise over $2500 for 5 different local animal groups, all from proceeds from our shows! None of our performers are paid; we perform for the love of performing and for our love of animals. Our cast and crew are forever changing; we have some cast and crew members that have been with us since the beginning (November 5, 2016), and some that have joined us along the way. We welcome guest performers and guest crew members as well! Our performers are eclectic and have a variety of experience levels. Our Vaudeville style variety show is different with each performance; we do not repeat acts, and are constantly thinking of new ways to make our audience laugh. Please send your ideas to us for new potential acts, and let us know your favorite acts from past shows!
Our next show will be Saturday, March 21, 2020!
We are still trying to decide on our next animal rescue group; as soon as we decide, it will be posted HERE. There is something VERY EXCITING we are going to do for our next show: we are going to have JUKE JOINT HAND-ME-DOWNS entertain you for the pre-show!
Because we are bringing in huge talent for our pre-show act, we will be raising the ticket prices a little. They will only be a few dollars more than they were before; as soon as we get the prices finalized, they will be posted here. Members will get a discounted price.
Doors open at 7 PM, show begins at 8 PM, and lasts @ 2 and a half hours, including intermission.
As soon as the tickets for our next show become available, we will post the link!
Want cheaper tickets and the ability to purchase alcohol at the show?
Our last show, Spring Spectacular, was so much fun! And it was for such a good cause. This show was to raise money for senior dogs with Silver Muzzle Cottage, and was also a tribute to two senior dogs owned by the founder of Frivolous Follies (Sweet Vidalia), Mazie and Clover, who passed away in April, 2019. Clover was adopted from Silver Muzzle Cottage in October, 2018. Six dogs from Silver Muzzle Cottage (and their handlers, and the founder, and her father) travelled all the way from the Traverse City area to watch the show and even got to participate in two different acts on stage, the "Canine Cotillion", and the tribute to Silver Muzzle Cottage. The audience and the cast had a wonderful time. We were able to raise $570 for them! Thank you to everyone!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for making our performances a success! We perform these shows as benefits for animal rescue groups; there will always be a tribute number to the group of choice. If you have specific animal groups that you support, please let us know! We were able to raise money for the animal rescue groups from bottle and can collections, merchandise sales, 50/50 raffle ticket sales, and tips from the audience. Thank you so much for helping us help the animals!
