Saturday To-Do: 'Follie Holidays'

Posted By on Fri, Jul 24, 2009 at 3:25 PM

‘FOLLIE HOLIDAYS'
1 p.m. and 7 p.m., The Rep. $10.

Most professional theater companies around the country have programs for young artists like the Rep's Summer Musical Theater Intensive, but few, if any, put those young performers on their Main Stage, which is what the Rep will do twice this Saturday (ages 16 to 23) and twice again Saturday, Aug. 8 (ages 10 to 15). In November, the groups will join to present the program in a two-week run. Don't mistake “Follie Holidays” for just another kid's show, redeemed by cuteness and precociousness. Hundreds auditioned for a spot in the SMTI, and those that make it are serious about acting. Past shows have been hugely impressive. This year's musical revue takes on songs from well-known holidays — New Year's Day, National Dress Up Your Pet Day, National Barbershop Quartet Day, Multiple Personality Day and the like. Don't dawdle: Tickets for the summer performances often sell out quickly.
