July 29 & 30, 2pm
The Golden Follies variety show returns for the sixth year in a row to the Firehouse Arts Center in Pleasanton with two big matinees at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, July 29 and 30. The sparkling Las Vegas-style dance revue features a large 25 member cast of seasoned performers ages 55-90 from all over Northern California.
"5, 6, 7, 8...The Golden Follies 2017!" does not disappoint, with the trademark lavish costumes, high energy delivery, stylish choreography, and radiant smiles. Popular San Francisco Chanteuse Wiggy Darlington will also be making an appearance for a few numbers. With music from Nightclub to Broadway, Sinatra to Buble, and a touch of Bruno Mars to keep everyone on trend, the show promises to deliver a healthy dose of toe-tapping glitz and glam appropriate for all ages.
Tapping to professional choreography by co-founders and artistic directors Susan Bostwick and Diane Stawicki, the troupe's mission is to pay loving tribute to the music of vaudeville's heyday right up through today's hottest sounds, often featuring numbers honoring legendary performers, reminiscent of the great variety shows of the past.
The Golden Follies was founded 20 years ago by sister team Diane and Susan, who are the dynamic force behind all aspects of the show, including direction, choreography, concept, and costumes. Both have extensive professional performing backgrounds, having traveled throughout the US and Europe appearing with such artists as Wayne Newton, Robert Goulet, the Pointer Sisters, Rita Moreno, Paul Anka, Jack Jones, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dolly Parton to name just a few.
