Follies: “A foolish action, idea, or practice”
“An elaborately costumed revue”
Here at Mississippi College, our students are getting excited about our annual production of Follies, happenning TONIGHT!
The definition above is pretty much the essence of what happens here on the Friday night before Homecoming. Pledges from each tribe and club on campus put on a 10-minute skit for upperclassmen and alumni.
When I participated in Follies my Freshman year, it was a ton of fun! Plus, I loved getting to see my other friends participate. Sophomore year, I got to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show! Both were great experiences and I CANNOT wait to watch Follies again tonight!
Here’s a recap of last year’s skits!
Meet our awesome Follies hosts, Jill and Micheal!
Kissimee kicked off the night with an Alice in Wonderland theme! And they revealed their freshman Beau!
