The 2019 Spectacular Follies "A New Attitude" is coming to Dallas in September and we are looking for beautiful, talented women over the age of 55 to audition to be one of our famous Follies Showgirls.

Entering our 11th year, The Spectacular Follies is an all-live musical review featuring a cast of talented entertainers over the age of 55. One of the highlights of every performance is the presentation of the Follies Showgirls who capture the hearts of the audience when seen parading down the grand staircase and across the stage wearing lavish costumes featuring gorgeous, impressively large feather headdresses. Being a showgirl in the Follies is one of the most coveted roles in the show and here is your chance to be part of the fun.

Sunday, March 31st at 4:00 pm

The showgirl audition process is a fun, exciting event that brings out many hopeful women who wish to strut their stuff on the stage. The criteria is simple; the Follies looks for women who can walk on cue, pose and maneuver down a flight of stairs with grace, poise and elegance. Wearing a leotard, tights and high heels at the audition is requested and all participants will be asked to parade before our audition panel to show off their ability to sparkle. A Follies Showgirl must have confidence and glamour and display an outgoing personality that will shine over the footlights.

Casting for the 2019 Follies Showgirls will be held on Sunday, March 31 at 4pm.
at United Disciples Christian Church
601 E. Main Street in Richardson, Texas.

The Follies is not affiliated with this or any other church; we are a secular 501(C) (3) nonprofit organization who welcomes everyone.

The Spectacular Follies began in 2008 as a showcase to feature talented entertainers over the age of 55 who still had a desire to perform but found limited venues to do so. The Follies opened with a cast of 40 entertainers and has grown over the last decade into a spectacle of over 140 performers who present the finest in theater performance, professionally staged with colorful sets, live music and glorious costumes. Featuring hits from Broadway to Hollywood, country to comedy, the Follies has presented tributes to the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s to our audiences to great acclaim.

Being a family friendly show, audiences encompass all ages - grandparents to grandkids. Everyone will find something to sing along with while tapping their toes.

Casting call for singers, dancers, (groups and ensembles) and specialty acts will take place Saturday, March 30 from 10am to 5pm and Sunday, March 31 from 1pm to 4pm at same location. See our website for specific times and requirements (www.seniorfollies.com).
