Information & History of the Walden Follies

The Walden Follies was started as a program for the Walden Ladies Association luncheon meeting in 1982.

The first two shows were held at the Yacht Club, with about 50 attending. The cast members of the original Follies were the members of the Walden ladies tennis team: Carolyn Wagner, Carol Caplan (formally a Radio City Rockette), Ginnie Griffin, Judy Eichenbaum, Melody Carr, Cathy Richberg, and Karin Zurbrick. The MC that first year was Bob Brochstein, who owned an upscale restaurant in Conroe called The Blacksheep. The theme was built around a restaurant with all the girls having parts. Phil Griffin was the mastermind behind the production. He built the original stage, did the props and most of the backstage and crew work. He also appeared in many acts over the years.

In 1984 the Follies was growing and the show was moved to the Conference Center, which is now the M.I.S.D. building. The original kickline was started by a talented group of women, although we have since added a men’s kickline to our cast. We had a large stage, lights, make-up and fancy costumes. In 1988 the Follies moved back to the Yacht Club where it has been ever since.

What is the Follies? It is one of the best Walden community organizations!

The purpose of the Follies is to make friends among the residents of Walden while preparing and performing four shows in March. Our cast and crew number well over 100 Walden property owners.

Our audience is about 500-600 people for four performances. If you have never been to the Follies, you are really missing out on a fun event. All ticket holders will be delighted by a wonderful evening of entertainment at the Yacht Club which includes a delicious meal.

Do you want to sing or dance? Tell a joke? Work behind the scenes with lights, sound, and props? Would you like to help decorate the Yacht Club? Or maybe, use your computer or marketing skills? We can find a slot for you as part of the nicest group of people you will ever work with!
