Event Navigation

Don’t miss seeing this upbeat musical that boasts gorgeous costumes, toe-tapping music, and fantastic choreography. Presented in the style of a Ziegfeld Follies revue, the show celebrates American folk hero Will Rogers and his story of making the world a better place than before he entered it. The tale captures his accomplishments, his philosophies of respect and confidence in the goodness of his fellow man, along with his many talents.

 

Winner of six Tony Awards in 1991, the show’s buoyant score by Cy Coleman, with lyrics by Comden & Green, includes “Will-a-Mania,” “Our Favorite Son,” “My Unknown Someone,” and “Give A Man Enough Rope.” An inspiring, feel-good musical for all generations, THE WILL ROGERS FOLLIES is directed by Clare Cooke and features a cast of local talent.
