People flock from across Cape Cod to see the Follies at the Crown & Anchor on Friday. It’s our most popular annual event. Professionally produced with expert lighting and sound, the Fabulous Follies features some of our community’s most talented members. If you’re not performing, you’ll want to arrive early to grab a good seat. The Follies show is always a sellout!

If you’ve ever dreamed of getting on stage, or if you’re already a skilled or professional performer, the Follies offers you a chance to shine in front of more than 200 people. Break out your guitar, sing a song, recite a dramatic monologue, or just pretend you’re Katy Perry or Prince and lip-sync! If you’re uncertain or nervous about performing, don’t be! The audience is always warm and welcoming. The Follies’ director and her wonderful backstage coaches will help calm your nerves. Dive In! Don’t miss the chance to show the world your inner diva! Just step up on stage and be a star! Please remember to sign up early; there’s only enough time for about 18 or so performers. Sign-up is Monday afternoon at the Boatslip; check the schedule to be sure.

The Follies is held in the Crown & Anchor’s Paramount Theater, 247 Commercial St., across the street from Town Hall in the heart of Provincetown. Join us afterward at Tin Pan Alley 269 Commercial Street for a late-night dinner. If you are full of energy and want to dance the night away, join us at Club Purgatory, 9 Carver Street, in the basement of the Gifford House. Several other bars are available before, during, and after the Follies for cocktails to properly celebrate the evening.

Besides being a fun evening, the Follies is also a charitable fundraising event. Tips given to the performers are donated to charity. In past years, we have contributed to the town’s library, the Provincetown Police Depart-ment, an AIDS support group, a local hospice facility, Soup Kitchen in Provincetown, the Provincetown LGBT Welcome Center. the UU Church, and senior services group. We purchased a life‐saving defibrillator for the Fire Department. Since the Follies began, the show has helped us raise more than $58,000 for deserving organizations. Your donations have never been more needed and appreciated!
