Holiday "Last Hurrah" Closes With Two New Year's Eve Performances
Palm Springs, California (November 21, 2013) At the stroke of midnight on December 31, the bizarre, the hilarious, the joyous madness that is Christmas At the Follies will have come to a final, twinkling close . . . and The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies' holiday season will have officially ended--forever! However, up to eight performances per week of this world-famous holiday extravaganza still remain, and while good seats are available, packed houses are expected for what is to be our holiday last hurrah. It's your final chance to celebrate the Yuletide with the Follies, and you won't want to miss it.
A soaring medley of "Silent Night," "Ave Maria" and "O' Holy Night"; a comedic performance of "The Dreidel Song" by dancing rabbis; a burlesqued "Santa Baby"; and a shimmering onstage snowfall to the strains of "White Christmas" all combine to make the Follies' holiday offering unlike anything you've seen before.
And this season, the festivities also include sensational guest star Susan Anton who returns to the Plaza Theatre stage with her very special tribute to the holiday season--with songs both traditional and contemporary. From "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus" to such classics as "Count Your Blessings" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", Anton delivers a fitting "Last Hurrah" for the Follies' closing season.
On December 31, the Follies presents two special New Year's Eve performances at 3:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., each with a glittering champagne reception and hats and noisemakers to welcome in 2014 ("Rio de Janeiro midnight" for matinee-goers).
So if you are searching in vain for holiday spirit among the rush and crush of year-end obligations, The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies offers you a haven of joyful Christmas cheer and unforgettable New Year's revelry.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Grammy-nominated Maureen McGovern opens January 7 as Follies guest star, playing through March 8, 2014.
The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies 23rd and final edition is (aptly) tilted "The Last Hurrah!" Since 1992, the Follies has been seen by over three million patrons, and celebrates the music and dance of Mid-Century America with a cast ranging in age from 55 to 84 years "young." The show features lavish, Broadway-caliber production numbers, and plays five days a week from November through late-May. In 1997, it was the subject of an Oscar-nominated short documentary entitled Still Kicking: The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies. The show is housed in downtown Palm Springs' historic Plaza Theatre, a charming, neon-encrusted old movie house, which is an attraction itself. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Box Office at (760) 327-0225 or online at www.psfollies.com.
