New Candlelight Theatre announes the 1st Annual New Candlelight Memorial Benefit, FOLLIES...In Concert, September 27-30th, 2012.

Aisle Say has seen the full show several times. It is one of Sondheim's masterpieces; the songs are legendary, the plot is – how you say – labored. Therefore, a concert version is the supreme way to enjoy tunes such as "Losing My Mind," "I'm Still Here," “Buddy's Song” and "Broadway Baby."

For four performances only, the Delaware Area's finest performers and musicians will volunteer their talents to make a difference for NCT. The goal of presenting FOLLIES…In Concert is to raise $15,000 for the New Candlelight Memorial Endowment which was founded with the purpose of supporting capital efforts of NCT.

I know 90% of these performers. Two ladies, Claudia Kaiser and Becky Buswell Forsikas, were stars in my DE's Best of Broadway productions in the '80's and '90's. They are two of the REAL Broadway-worthy performers in this benefit. And, in a departure from the recorded music, these four shows will feature a full orchestra

This all-star cast includes many Delaware area favorites such as: Gerri Weagraff as Phyllis Stone Rogers, Patrick O'Hara as Benjamin Stone, Karen Murdock as Sally Durant Plummer, and Lou Marino (DiMarino) as Buddy Plummer. Due to an overwhelming amount of talent, the production has been double cast and will feature certain performers on certain nights. Visit website for complete casting information.

FOLLIES…In Concert will be produced in honor and memory of Lee C. Goldstein, Terry Johnson, and John O'Toole. As the first honorees in the memorial fund, their spirit continues to influence and inspire the Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers of NCT. Families and friends of these individuals contributed to create this endowment fund, and NCT hope that through events such as FOLLIES…In Concert we will continue to create a lasting legacy on their behalf.
