Learn about Poke Sallet Follies on new website

ATHENS — The cast and crew of the 21st annual Poke Sallet Follies are about to begin rehearsal.

This year, the public can learn more about the yearly fundraiser — such as dates and times, ticket prices and history — on a new website.

According to this year’s show director, Stacy Givens, the site — pokesalletfollies.org — will soon be up and running for the show, which is set for March 7, 8 and 9. She said a new company, Image In a Box (imageinabox.com) volunteered to build the site and design a logo.

“The short of it is that we felt that the event needed ‘branding,’” Givens said. “As a result, we were able to get a company to volunteer to put together a cohesive marketing plan. It includes a new logo, a website and the program for the event.” 

Tickets go on sale from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Feb.18, and each day following from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Athens Senior Center at 912 W. Pryor St. All seats are reserved and must be paid for in advance. The center will accept cash and checks only. Tickets are $35 per person and include a three-course meal.

Early reservations and telephone reservations will not be accepted.

“The website provides the history of the event, contact information, ticket sale information and important dates for the cast members,” Givens said. “The primary benefit is obvious — people can get information easily about the event without having to pick up the phone and call someone.  It’s a central place for answers to common questions. It also will help promote the event to those who've never heard of it or never attended.” 

This is some of the information included on the new website:

Sponsorship

Poke Sallet Follies offers a variety of sponsorship and advertising opportunities for local businesses and events. Short commercials written by volunteers and shown during the event, program ads, website ads and tablescapes are available for purchase.
