An amateur con artist claims benefits for imaginary residents of his household in a scheme to defraud welfare, to the chagrin of his neighbors. But in this quintessential British farce by Michael Cooney, his not-so-carefully constructed plan is in danger of falling apart when various bureaucrats show up to investigate his boarding house, resulting in a bevy of comic complications, mistaken identities and slamming doors. Glendale Centre Theatre brings back its successful 2006 production of this raucous comedy by popular demand. Learn More

What a perfect way to learn more about the life of this American legend!
Great music, costumes, choreography and so well executed by an excellent cast. Danny Michaels' performance was incredible. We might even take friends and go back for a second time.
Highly recommend this one!
Also, Kim (Theater House Manager that night) was welcoming and hospitable. She made the experience even more special.
Will Rogers is famous for saying “I never met a man I didn’t like,” and anyone who has ever seen or performed in Will Rogers Follies will agree that there has never been a man-or woman-who did not like it.
Subtitled “A Life In Revue,” Will Rogers Follies stands out among musicals because of the magic of its protagonist. Rare is the man who transcends decades and rises to the level of legend. Will Rogers does this not only because of his accomplishments, but because of his philosophy, which espouses respect and confidence in the goodness of his fellowman.
Will Rogers was a unique American who, though he died almost sixty years ago, remains a beloved figure remembered for his humor, his wisdom, and his just plain common sense. At the heart of his populist philosophy was his most famous statement: “I never met a man I didn’t like.” Rogers became the biggest, most popular, and highest paid star of every existing medium of his time—stage, screen, radio, newspapers, and public appearances. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that he was the greatest star this country has ever produced.
