GREENVILLE — Anyone who has ever harbored the dream of being a part of a stage production will have a chance to make that dream come true, starting this week.

Follies 2013, “Shaken with a Twist of Sublime” is scheduled April 26-27 at Greenville Municipal Auditorium.

The Meet the Director Party is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Fletcher Warren Civic Center, 5501 Highway 69 South, in Greenville.

Jaime Donegan returns as the director for the production.

Proceeds from the show will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Texas, to fund the construction of an outdoor learning center at the Reecy Davis Recreation Center, 4320 Lee Street.

Auditions will be held Wednesday, with the rehearsals starting Thursday.

The Follies is a fundraiser for community projects which presents musical numbers and comedy sketches featuring a cast made entirely of local residents.

The Follies began in 1987 and is now conducted every two years. There have been 16 shows which have raised more than $600,000 for local non-profit organizations.
