ACU's Freshman Follies lands this weekend

For Immediate Release
September 20, 1999

The journey is just beginning for Abilene Christian University freshmen performing in Freshman Follies Sept. 24-25.

More than 700 freshmen will gather in ACU's Cullen Auditorium to entertain the audience about their new-found college life. Students participate in solo, small group and large chorus acts throughout the show.

Cynthia Cook, dean of students, said Follies is one of the first initial opportunities for new students to get involved with fellow freshmen to produce and participate in a full musical production.

"The dorm acts help the students to get to know other people on their floor and have fun," Cook said. "(This production) provides enjoyment for family and friends."

Freshman Follies' theme is "The Journey Begins: Episode 99." The stage is constructed to look like a spacecraft has landed in Cullen Auditorium.

According to Cook, the `acting troup' will carry the theme throughout the show.

Tickets are $5 and are available by calling 674-2648. Showtimes are Friday at 8 and 10 p.m. and Saturday at 1, 3 and 5 p.m.

Freshman Follies is a part of Fall Preview Weekend where high school students and prospective students and their parents visit ACU.

"This is a chance for high school students to see first-year students come together and pull off a performance as important as Follies in only five weeks," Cook said. "It's a part of what makes ACU different."
