Future of Follies uncertain

The Lebanon Follies is taking a break from performances this year — the first time in 20 years — with a possibility that it may not return.

Interim President George Piper said the organization has been facing some difficulties in recent years: smaller casts, lower ticket sales, higher production costs and changes in leadership. And those difficulties may lead to the end of the 20-year Lebanon variety show tradition.

“It would be nice to see it continue,” Piper said. “I think it’s a fun show. The audience enjoys it, enjoys seeing those local faces up on stage in different capacities.”

The board of the Lebanon Follies Company has not made an official decision as to what direction will be taken, Piper said. The issue will most likely be revisited early in 2013.
