Planning is in full swing for the 2016 Follies, the raucous, irreverent and R-rated entertainment event and Angels Over Sandpoint fundraiser. For the coming show, planners hope to attract more residents to auditions and diversify the number of performers in each act.

“Last year we heard a few complaints about the fact that so many of our performers were in more than one act,” said Dorothy Prophet, one of the event organizers. “Unfortunately, that was the result of not having enough people come to auditions.”

The Follies needs both people with original acts to run in the show and people to fill out existing acts. To audition, call (208) 290-7685 and schedule a slot, which are available Jan. 8, 5-7 p.m.; Jan. 9, 3-5 p.m.; Jan. 22,  5-7 p.m. and Jan. 23, 3-5 p.m.

The Follies is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Angels Over Sandpoint, which does excellent nonprofit work all year ‘round. So show your community spirit—and your wild side—by participating in the craziest show of the year!
