Members of Abilene Christian University's freshman class will be performing for parents, friends and visitors during the annual Freshman Follies show Oct. 3-4. ACU's Office of Student Productions puts on the long-standing tradition -- a variety show performed and produced by freshmen -- each fall semester. This year's theme is "A Fresh New World."
Performances will be in Cullen Auditorium Friday at 7 and 9 p.m. and Saturday at 1, 3 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 and all are general admission. Tickets are available by calling 325-674-2287, Monday through Friday 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., or online at www.freshmanfollies.com.
The show provides several different opportunities for student involvement. Each floor of the first year men's and women's residence halls participates by putting together a medley of three to four songs and adding choreography. Freshmen are also given the opportunity to audition for small ensembles, solos or duets, a dance troupe or to participate in large chorus groups.
"Freshman Follies is definitely a variety show," said Evan Woods, freshman music education major from Fleming, Ohio, and show co-chair. "It is going to have some great musical talent in each act, and there will be plenty of laughs."
Each residence hall act gives students an opportunity to tell the audience about the various aspects of freshman life at ACU.
"The amount of creative effort that has gone into this show is unbelievable, and that has made it so much fun to work on," said Kaitlyn Whitlock, freshman theatre major from Garland and show co-chair. "I have enjoyed being a part of the production staff partly because of all the wonderful, talented people that I have met."
