Now in its 39th year of production, the annual Athens Area Follies will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 23, at the Quonset Hut Theater, 132 N. Capital Avenue in Athens. Admission is by donation. Arrive early to ensure getting a good seat, then sit back and enjoy the local talent that’s on display.  

This year’s Follies will feature singing, dancing, a dramatic reading, musical instrument performances and humorous bits interspersed throughout the production, much of what audiences have come to expect.  

However, there will be no large production numbers, which were a prominent feature of the Follies when it was held on the stage of the Athens High School gymnasium until 2020, when they were cancelled due to the COVID-19 lockdown that occurred midway through rehearsals.
