The Geritol Frolics is a musical variety show presented in vaudeville fashion by talented performers over age 55 from around the Brainerd Lakes area.

Originally created in 1987 as a means of promoting involvement of seniors in community theater, the show became an entity in its own right delighting audiences with a fast-paced mix of song, dance and comedy. Since 2004 the show has been presented on the Franklin Arts Center stage and has played to over 40,000 people from the five-state region, many of whom have come by chartered tours.

Our Mission has been to provide senior citizens the means for artistic expression in the performing arts by becoming involved in a musical variety show designed to entertain the general public; while continuing to provide learning experiences, socialization, exercise and mental stimulus for those participating.

Over the years, several hundred seniors have enjoyed the experience of having their ‘moment in the spotlight’. Unfortunately, those numbers have been declining over the years and that, coupled with advancing age and some health issues, has forced the decision to discontinue presenting the show. The 2018 Geritol Frolics show will be our FINAL CURTAIN performance.

To ensure that we can go out on a high note (pun intended) we have asked past performers to come join us in presenting a “Grand Finale”. It will be a really good show and we’re sure our audiences will leave with happy hearts and smiles on their faces singing our theme song
“You’re As Young As You Act, You’re As Young As You Feel”.
