SUN CITY CENTER - The "Follies" show is back.
Tickets are on sale for the show put on by the Pelican Players on Feb. 29 and March 1.
The "Follies" show - including chorus singers, tap dancers, solo artists and more - has been the biggest moneymaker for the Pelican Players since they started putting it on in Sun City Center in 1984, according to organizers.
Ticket proceeds go to the Pelican Players Scholarship Fund, which has raised more than $300,000 in the past two decades for local high school students pursuing arts degrees at a college of their choice.
Currently, there are about two dozen students from local high schools studying at colleges nationwide on a fund scholarship.
The "Follies 2008" shows will be at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 29 and 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. March 1 at the Borini Theatre at Kings Point.
Tickets cost $11.
Sun City Center and Kings Point residents can buy tickets with community association badges at the Kings Point box office from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays or 30 minutes before each performance. Residents living outside those areas can call 633-1753 for tickets.
