Hall Acts are large groups of students (20-45) from a dorm or floor that perform a short lip-sync act. This is the primary way that most students participate in Follies.



If you want to participate in a Hall Act, follow these steps:


1) Scan the QR codes that will be soon posted in your hallways. These will add you to a GroupMe group for that Hall, where you can collaborate and create the act.


2) Once you have a group forming, you need to select a "director" who will coordinate your group and be the point man for the Follies team to communicate with. After that, you can appoint any person to do any job the group sees necessary (choreographer, costumer, music editor, etc).

3) Register to become an official act at this link: You can register even before you have the full act, but you will need to keep recruiting up to the minimum amount of people if you want your group to remain in the show.

    • Each act must be at least 3 minutes.

    • Acts cannot exceed 4 minutes in length.

  • Waivers

    • All participants need to sign a waiver before the week of the show. The waiver can be found HERE.

  • Communication Expectations

    • Follies is FAST! As a director, you need to check your emails so you are always in the loop regarding dates and times, and can keep your act in the loop as well.

  • Information Deadline

    • A list of all songs, names of participants (name and banner ID), and production (sound/light/staging) needs must be submitted before the Dress Rehearsal. The Hall Acts Team will contact you with specific ways to submit this information as the deadline approaches.


  • Director Meetings

    • The Director of each act and up to 2 other people (3 total) will meet with the Director of Follies, Courtney McGaha, along with the Hall Act team leaders, to assist you with your act.

      • They will help you brainstorm, talk about what rehearsals should look like, and give you a rough schedule of how to make sure you are ready for Show Week.

      • These will take place by appointment during the first week of classes.
