Frantic Follies Vaudeville Show

My film aims to honour the forty-eight amazing years of the Vaudeville Frantic Follies show. It shows the traveling, preforming and working they did throughout those many years.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I found it very interesting that the Follies show had traveled across Canada and America twice! I also found it really cool that the Follies used to produce the shows for Whitehorse, And two in Dawson!

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

If I had the chance, I would want to share all the history of the Follies that I learned. Lessons I learned were that there is always something new to learn and to always remember our history.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

My life compared to the life of a stage performer is very different. They need to learn their lines by heart and have the most energy in the world! I on the other hand have to save my energy for school and my memory for tests :)
