Congratulations to the Milton Follies on achieving twenty years of bringing live theatre and entertainment to the Milton – Ulladulla community.  We are a not-for-profit community-based group run by volunteers who have provided theatre opportunities to people aged from five to eighty.  It is a credit to so many who have given up their time to act on stage or be part of the creative team (directors, musical directors, set builders, choreographers, wardrobe, front of house), all of whom have added to the talent available in the area.  It is a credit to the community who have got behind the Follies with generous sponsorships and other support which has enabled the group grow into the dedicated theatre group it has become.  Money raised by the Follies is put back into future productions. We also wish to thank the Milton Theatre Committee for their support.           

In 2000, Leone Rogers, a local singing teacher, had the dream of forming a theatre and entertainment group. She organised a committee in 2002 to present variety shows which raised money.  In 2003 it was decided to present Alice in Wonderland with assistance from the Bay Players who had costumes and sets which they generously lent to the Follies.  But the Follies did not have a director.  At this time, Di Falloon was profiled in the local newspaper, highlighting her background in theatre direction. Follies had a director and a show!    

Since then, we have produced over 30 shows with a great range of directors, including Di Falloon, K-M Doyle, Simon Grace, Julie McKenzie, Jan Shaw, Lloyd McDonald, and Ruth Myers. The Follies have produced up to two shows a year, including Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, Alice in Wonderland, Arabian Nights, Pinocchio, No Limits 150, Joseph and His Technicolor Dreamcoat, Godspell, Summer Wonderland, Peter Pan, The Pied Piper, Anything Goes Jr, The Little Mermaid Jr, Seussical Jr, Evie and the Birdman, Monty Python’s Spamalot, Calendar Girls, Noises Off, and The Vicar of Dibley. 

The Follies is proud of the theatre developed and wishes to take this opportunity to thank the many volunteers and supporters for their hard work and support over the past 20 years.
