This year's Freshman Follies production was like
no other, said Kendall Massey, director of Student
Freshman Follies is an annual variety show in which
freshman students perform in choruses, groups, residence
hall and solo acts. This year's theme, The Mission,
celebrated the university's centennial school year.
"There was so much more continuity in this show in
comparison to previous years," Massey said
One of the unique features of The Mission is that it
tied into an original film that Massey and a team of about
six members are producing.
"It's kind of like a take off of National Treasure and
The Da Vinci Code," he said.
Massey said it was as if the audience is watching a
treasure hunt unfold.
Massey said that he was also pleased with the solo acts
that signed up.
As director, Massey listened to acts and matched their
voices with certain musical pieces that he felt complimented
their sound, he said. Massey said he found this method to
rrLoIO Uy oildrl l)lrTlUt
be successful according to the feedback he received.
The production had a great turnout for performances
and freshman participation, he said.
"The [resident directors] did a good job at getting the
word out," Massey said.
Reagan Dunagan, business marketing major from
McAllen, said freshman moral was high.
Dunagan said he attended the last three Freshman
Follies and thought it was fun. As a freshman at Mabee
Hall, he performed with freshman peers on the second floor
of Mabee's west wing. 'Iheir theme was the 1990s.
"I think it's a time for the freshmen to be able to know
each other and have fun at the same time," he said. "We're
in it to have fun. It would have been nice to win, but that's
not what it's about."
