Fifth Winter Follies scheduled

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

ROCKVILLE -- Parke Players will present the fifth Winter Follies variety show at the historic Ritz Theater in Rockville Saturday, at 7 p.m.

Scheduled to perform at the fundraising event are singers, dancers and musicians throughout the Wabash Valley.

Among the lineup for performers for the 2013 Winter Follies are Joe Cooper, Andrea and Homer Faucett, Debbie Hamke, Archie and Clyde Krout, Dave Marty and Friends, Mission In Dance, Rick Morris, David Moon, Kristin Natalie, RES Boomwhackers, Ellen Rohr, Jack Shannon, Chris and Lee Ann Smith, Dorothy Smith, Andy Snowden and Roger Wycoff.

The show is produced by Andy Snowden and will be hosted by Don Collins.

The first Follies event was presented July 30, 2005, by a lineup of more than a dozen of Wabash Valley entertainers.

In January 2009, the Winter Follies show was added to the Parke Players season.

Proceeds from all Ritz Follies events go toward the continuing operation and maintenance of the Ritz Theater as well as aid in the completion of planned improvement projects.

This year's Winter Follies proceeds will go toward the servicing of stage technical systems.

The historic Rockville landmark celebrated its 100th anniversary as Parke County's premier entertainment venue in 2012.

All seats to the Saturday event are $7 and doors open at 6 p.m.
