Follies 2016

What could be more amusing than a show full of sarcastic songs, zany dances, hysterical jokes, exaggerated stories and riotous skits put on by your friends, neighbors and local celebrities? (Photo: Todd Crotty performs dance routine at 2015 Fun-Follies)
For the third year in a row, the “Fun” Raising Follies, a variety—show fundraiser for the Mississippi River Sculpture Park, offers a uniquely good time that will evoke plenty of laughter and side-splitting entertainment. It is held in the Little Theater at Prairie du Chien High School.
Three performances are scheduled for the weekend of Friday, Jan.8 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday; Jan. 9, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Advance tickets can be purchased at Prairie du Chien True Value and Prairie du Chien Piggly Wiggly. Tickets can also be purchased at the door. There is no reserved seating.
"This year promises to be even better than the last two years. New songs, new dances and wonderful skits will be performed," Cindy Hertrampf, director, said. This is the third year for the Fun follies directed by Hertrampf.
Dan Harwood, second director, will direct the music and also perform last year's favorite, The Round About song. "There will be a few changes in the song," Harwood said. "After all, the round-abouts have been in Prairie du Chien for more than a year."
Norb Aschom will be the master of Ceremonies.
By unwinding at the Follies and having a good laugh, audience members help the sculpture park gain its next planned statue. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the “Fun” Raising Follies will he used toward the statues at the sculpture park on St. Feriole Island.
“This fundraiser will really make, a big dent in the cost of the next sculpture. The sculpture park represents the history of the people who walked in our community. It is such an amazing facility, we're very lucky to have in Prairie chi Chien,” Hertrampf added.
