The Northport Follies Returns on August 29

The Northport Follies has been entertaining audiences since the 1960s, raising money for good works and having fun at the same time.  Building on a 50+ year Northport tradition, The Northport Promise revived the Northport Follies eight years ago, much to the delight of the community.   Our area is blessed with talent and fortunately not too many people are shy about getting up on stage for a good cause.


From the opening act to the finale the Northport Follies showcases local talent and a lot of local humor to help raise money for the Northport Promise, which provides scholarships for Northport High School graduates.

Got talent?  We invite you to join us on stage!  Prefer to watch?  That's okay too.  Every show needs a great audience.  What could be more fun?

The Northport Follies is produced and directed by Gloria Thomas who has been involved with the show since it was a hospital fundraiser in the 1980s.  She's the person to contact if you'd like to join us on stage.  You can email her at

The independent acts - most kept secret until dress rehearsal - are introduced by emcee Tom Wetherbee who honed his presentation skills keeping his fellow electrical engineers entertained at professional presentations.  For a preview of his style check out this presentation from the 2012 Northport Follies.
