"It was a terrific show - VERY well done, and particularly amazing that all the performers were over 55 and all volunteers. Please tell you're fellow performers and directors that I have seen all that there is to see in Hollywood, and the Senior Follies is right up there with the best."

"This show is not an 'old folks' talent show. Most, if not all, of the cast members are or have been professional entertainers. Guaranteed that you will leave the performance in better spirits than when you walked into the auditorium - including young people."
Carol McCune Castelhano
"After being in this show for five years, I attended the show in 2017 as an audience member and was completely WOWED by everything.....the sets, the costumes, the backdrops, the lighting, the sounds and the energy. This show will leave you tapping your toes and humming on old familiar tunes for weeks afterwards. So much fun!"

"The Spectacular Senior Follies is a magnificent production. Though it mainly serves the senior citizens in our community throughout the year, the show is open to the public for 5 performances on September 20-23 at the Eisemann Center in Richardson, Texas. This year's program is called 'Encore - the Best Is Yet To Come' and it will be the best, for sure. I am thrilled to be a part of this production each year since becoming involved in its 2nd year of 2009. The team that "

Jill L. Brooks
"I have been a part of this "family" of entertainers since 2010 and I can tell you, from the performer's point of view, this show has grown from super great to one of the best productions on stage each year. We began with the expertise of Mark Carroll, the comedic timing of Ned Starzel, and now thrive in the gifts of Tony-award-winner Michael Serrechia and creative genius of DeeAnne Meece. This show only comes around once a year in September. You really don't want to miss it. Great for the WHOLE family! Come and celebrate the joy of life, love, and laughter through the great music and talents of the 'seasoned' (not senior) cast members! You won't regret it! "
Stephen Daingerfield Dunn

Do yourself a favor and give your entire family the perfect gift of tickets to this heartfelt show that will have you on your feet clapping and blowing kisses!!! "
Marcie Green Baker
"I started going to the Spectacular Senior Follies four years ago and always took someone with me, my mom, mother-n-law, friend and everyone always thoroughly enjoys the show. Last year was my first year to be in show instead of the audience! WOW! These performers, directors and staff are absolutely phenomenal! Last year my husband, friends and son and his fiance attended for the first time. They were all blown away and had a great time. This is a show you simply should not miss! "
Sheila K Klein
"I am delighted to be participating in the 10th Anniversary of the Spectacular Senior Follies. The shows just keep getting better and better every year. It's a family friendly show filled with exciting singers, dancers, aerial performers, comedy skits and beautiful showgirls. You will fall in love with these energetic and talented artists who believe that 'age is just a number and theirs are not listed'. Hope to see you at the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts in September! "

"I Saw the 2017 Follies and was Mesmerized!!! So this year I tried out and will now be a new cast member for the 2018 show! So excited to be dancing with these 126 cast members! Everyone is so encouraging and welcoming- It's one great big family!!! It will a great show with fantastic singing & dancing . There's something for everyone to enjoy! Several of my friends took their moms last year. They were so happy & glad they could share the experience together!! How to see them again this year!!! "
Jim Heaberg
"This show is one of the most professional entertainments in North Texas. Many of the performers appear in community and regional theater productions, and several have Broadway experience, performed in movies and in Las Vegas. Each annual production by these talented, volunteer entertainers (over the age of 55) has become more Spectacular than the previous year. It is definitely the most lavish production in the DFW area. "
Carol Ann Cohen
"The best thing I can say about the Spectacular Senior Follies is that it's so full of surprises! You have a WOW moment from the colorful costumes & very cute guys & girls. Then, BAM, you see a dazzling performance from our Dancing with the Stars caliber couple we import from Florida. Never mind our Cirque duSoleil-style, silk- climbing pixie. And, let us not forget our drop-dead gorgeous Show Girls, with headdresses going up to the heavens & legs for days! All tied up with a patriotic red, white & blue ribbon finale full of America's best, most mature singers, dancers! "

"I attended the first Senior Follies Show to see my famous mom, Rosemary Rumbley perform and I couldn't wait until I became of age to perform in the show. It has morphed into the best production ever produced locally. It's a must see and I can't wait to see this year's show evolve. "
