Mid-Columbia Lions Follies’ “Gilligan’s Island, the Untold Story” continues April 12, 13, and 14 at 7:30 p.m. Follies is an annual fundraiser for Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation (OLSHF). This year, 50 percent of the proceeds will also go to the Hood River Children’s Park playground project.

“The Lions are pleased to up their game in fundraising by adding this important local community need,” co-director Bev Bridgewater said.

Donations will be taken at the door as well as several levels of larger donations, should folks want to provide a higher level of support. Gilligan’s show t-shirts will also be available for purchase.

All performances in the 42nd annual show will be at the historic Hood River Middle School Auditorium. In the 1960s TV show “Gilligan’s Island,” seven folks were stranded after a storm at sea marooned them on a deserted island. Writers Mike Oates (island stories) and Terri Tyler (mainland back story) put their heads together for this year’s production, an annual revue involving songs and sketches performed by local residents and some out-of-town guest performers. Directors of the show are the long-involved Bridgewater and Kim Vogel.

Tickets are $10 general admission and $8 for children ages 12 and under. Attendees can save $1 by purchasing in advance at one of the ticket outlets.

Tickets are available at Studio 10 Salon, Waucoma Books, Windmaster Market, Mid Valley Market, Jim’s Market, Columbia State Bank, Key Bank, Hood River Adult Center, Postal Annex, Tallman Ladders, Klindt’s Bookstore and from any Lions club member.

For further information or to inquire about tickets or making a donation, please contact Trudy Tallman at 541-386-2763 or tallmantru@gmail.com.
