Friday night kicked off the 23rd annual Zaney Follies show at Secrest Auditorium.

Director John Kunkel says more than 100 volunteers from all over southeast Ohio have been hard at work since January to prepare for "Zaney Radio…WZNY…On the air", which benefits Genesis Hospice.

"They take vacation to come in here and build sets, help us with production, whatever it needs, they take a week’s vacation to come in to do it," said Kunkel.

Kunkel says the Zaney Follies Central Committee chose radio as this year’s theme because of its historical aspect.

"A lot of people have grown up with radio and radio gives you the theatre of the mind so there’s a lot of things you can do with radio that you can’t do on television," added Kunkel.

If you missed Friday’s show at Secrest, there still is time to get tickets at Saturday night’s show. Tickets will be available at the Secrest box office from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday’s show begins at 8 p.m.
