A new holiday tradition in Cairo is ready to delight audiences as a slew of local talent takes to the stage for the Second Annual Christmas Follies next week.
The “old fashioned” Christmas variety show is sponsored by Syrup City Players and will feature performances by more than 20 different groups and individuals at Cairo’s Zebulon Theater.
Showtimes are Friday and Saturday, Dec. 7-8, 7:30 p.m.; and a children’s matinee on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. Advance tickets are on sale at Miss Myrt’s and Center Drugs and are $10 for adults or $6 for students and seniors. Ticket prices for the children’s matinee are $6 for adults and $4 for students/seniors. Tickets will also be on sale at the door.
Performers will include members of the Cairo High School drama and music programs: Pine Level Baptist Church Chimes; South Georgia Ballet; Off Broadstreet Centre for the Dance Arts; Washington Middle School drama; singers Alicia New, Cindy Meadows and Lauren Mobley; saxophonist Austin Brinkley; Amelia and Vickie Pharis playing violin; a bluegrass band; short skits from Syrup City Players; United Methodist Singers; with a special appearance by members of the Boys and Girls Club.
“It’s going to be a very fast-paced night of entertainment that is sure to help put everyone in the mood for Christmas, and will encourage people to stay at home and enjoy our local merchants and traditions right here in Grady County,” says Jeff Lovett of Syrup City Players.
The children’s matinee on Saturday is co-sponsored by Grady County Young Life and will feature high school kids performing skits, sing-alongs with the kids, wacky games, puppets and a visit from Santa.
