“This Follies is all about re-energizing our senior community.”

Among the entertainers planned for the Follies are Grammy winner Jody Miller, international actress and singer Charlotte Franklin, dancer/choreographer Robert Windsor and actor Terry Runnels.

“Our Follies have only seniors clear up to and beyond 90 years old,” Lane said. “Sing, dance, present side-splitting comedy. Show, by our example, our senior community that they can also get up out of their chairs and get active. Maybe they don't perform, but their talents are needed and wanted in this community, and we value them.”

The fourth annual Oklahoma Senior Follies will be staged at 7 p.m. June 13, 3 p.m. June 14 and 3 p.m. June 15, at Oklahoma City University’s Kirkpatrick Auditorium. Tickets go on sale Monday and can be purchased by calling the OCU ticket office at (405) 208-5227 or online at http://www.okcu.edu/ticketoffice.
