Each year the Follies feature a new holiday-themed show. We're calling THIS
year's edition: "HOLIDAZED!" our salute to
the season's shenanigans. Now in the past, patrons have enjoyed "A
(registry worker gone bad), "A Charlie Bakst Christmas" (ProJo
meets Peanuts), "A Crossguard Got Runover by a Reindeer" ('nuff
said) among other infamous titles. Who knows exactly what will
inspire us this year - but you can believe a certain former mayor's
return will be featured, as well as the other issues du jour. Lotsa
audience interaction - perfect for your office pahty.
And... or the first time, we're offering a new show. "LIVE!
with Sid & Sheila!" Charlie Hall and
Doreen Collins star as Sid and Sheila hosts of a hit New
York morning TV show (much like Regis and Kelley). Don't
miss the holiday hilarity that happens when they decide to
shoot a Christmas show on location in Johnston, RI. Nationally-known
comic impressionist John Roarke (johnroarke.com)
provides the celebrity interviews of George Bush, Woody Allen,
Dave Letterman, Johnny Carson and Kramer among just a few.
There's also musical numbers, backstage bungling and yes,
the audience becomes part of this "live" TV faux
taping. FYI: Our two big Friday night shows at the West Valley
Inn (December 7th and 14th) will feature a combo of BOTH

go through the 'Follies hotline' (401) 353-3330 unless otherwise
stated. Luigi's, our 'home' venue, takes their own at 861-3850.
Chan's will takes their own also. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if
you're phonophobic. Most tables seat 8, usually 10. And
of course we put you together! Large groups who need multiple
tables will have their tables close to each other. Of course
sometimes tables are shared with other groups - that's the
fun of dinner theater.
GIFT CERTIFICATES! This year, why not give the gift
of laughter? Although the Follies appear all around the state,
we suggest buying a gift certificate at Luigi's in Johnston,
our home venue. We appear there monthly so it can be used
at whichever show is more convenient for the giftee. Please
call them directly at 861-3850 or stop by if you're in the
PAYMENT: The preferred way to reserve is to CALL US at 353-3330
to put your group on ONE credit card, Visa, Mastercard, or
American Express only. We will accept checks if received at
least 7 days in advance to clear - but again we prefer ONE check as opposed
to a bunch of smaller ones. (Make checks payable to Charlie
Hall, 10-B Cutters Green, North Providence, RI 02904
can be tricky but we could certainly arrange for it if that's
We need a general count when you first call us and a credit card to hold it or a promise to send a deposit check ASAP. A final count is due at least 5 days before the show. If someone shows up at the last minute, we can add them in; however YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR NO -SHOWS unless you call in advance. (I mean, c'mon - we coulda sold those seats to others on the waiting list!) We will try to accommodate changes right up until the last minute...but there is ABSOLUTELY NO GUARANTEE that the restaurant will allow us to cancel meals - in fact they seldom allow it. Best seating (closeness to stage area) depends on how soon you reserve! (But no seat is really THAT bad!).
We now have PAY PAL which allows you to pay online - either as a group or individually. Just make sure you let us know what group/party you are from in the message box of Pay Pal so we know where to put you and your money! Paying online does NOT serve as a reservation - you or your group leader must CALL to confirm your reservation.
POLICY - Despite the bribes we pay to Gary Ley and Tony Petrarca
each winter, there is always a chance that snow and bad weather
will put a damper on an evening. Most Rhode Islanders will
see 6 flakes of snow and make a bee line for the milk and
bread. We all have different views on what "bad weather" is,
and how much snow we will drive in. If you don't want to
drive in 4 inches of slush, fine - but the venue has already
ordered and prepared your dinner - and they're charging the
Follies for it 'weather' you come or not! SO UNLESS IT'S
AN INCREDIBLY HEAVY/STATE OF EMERGENCY SNOWFALL, THE SHOW
WILL GO ON! THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS! You may call 353 -3330
for any weather updates if snow is predicted.
FOLLIES GIFT CERTIFICATES make perfect gifts...and they can be good for any show
this year or next! Combine them with one of Charlie Hall's cartoon
books, or his wonderful print of the Providence skyline and you have an extra
special and unique present for that someone special. Call us for more info...353-3330.
