MEADVILLE — Tease up your hair, peg your pants and get ready for a little “Thriller.” The Meadville Medical Center Charity Follies are back and this year it’s the “Totally Awesome 80s.”

Those interested in being in the show or helping behind the scenes may attend the “Meet the Director” kick-off party on Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. at the Lew Davies Community Center, 1034 Park Ave. No auditions and no talent are necessary — just volunteers willing to “ham it up” on stage. This is a show that will include all your favorite 1980s tunes, with appearances by all your favorite 1980s icons.

Show dates are Nov. 22 and 23 at the Meadville Area Senior High School auditorium. Tickets are $5 for kids 12 and under and $15 for adults, with four tickets for $50. Tickets are available at the Meadville Medical Center gift shops at Liberty Street and Grove Street; Jeron Jewelers, 307 Chestnut St.; and the Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute, 16792 Conneaut Lake Road, Vernon Township. All proceeds benefit the projects of the Meadville Medical Center Auxiliary.

The auxiliary uses money raised by the show to for projects that support the hospital and related services. Projects in the past have ranged from the purchase of medical equipment to providing waiting rooms and a room at the Hospice House with furnishings and decorations.
