|Experience local talent at free Senior Follies on Oct. 5 at Jewish Community Center|
This year's Senior Follies promises an exciting afternoon of great entertainment.
Now in its eighth year, the 2014 Follies will take place beginning at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 5, at the Jewish Community Center, 5801 W. 115th St., Overland Park. The event generally lasts about two hours and is free of charge for both audiences and performers.
About 20 acts were expected for this year's show, including singers, dancers, musicians, and comedians. It's possible there could be space left for additional acts, but anyone interested would need to contact 50 Plus Special Events and Travel Specialist Kari Baesel right away by calling (913) 826-3032.
JCPRD hosted the first follies event at Shawnee Mission South High School in 2007. That event was the Men’s Follies. In 2008, the event moved to the community college. In fall 2010, a Women’s Follies event was introduced and was also well received. In 2011, limited access to a venue resulted in combining the separate men's and women's events into a single Senor Follies, which was another great success.
The JCC location has 500 seats and organizers expect many of them to be full.
