Hundreds of people packed Secrest Auditorium for opening night of the 24th annual Zaney Follies.

This year, the Zaney Follies presents "We’re Crossing Z-Bridge," featuring several acts full of singing and dancing.

Support specialist from Genesis Healthcare Lori Junk said the show takes a satirical look at Zanesville’s conic Y-Bridge.

"The directors and writers thought of this because of our Y-Bridge that we have here and the major storyline is how can we change the Y-Bridge to the Z-Bridge. So Just a lot of songs a lot of singing and dancing and a little bit of acting, which is great," said Junk.

The proceeds from the Zaney Follies benefit Genesis Hospice and Palliative Care.

Junk said the outpouring of support from the community has been overwhelming.

"It’s very overwhelming the support and the love of the community that they have for us and the people and the love that they have given for out patients. So the community has really come together to support us and its a wonderful cause," added Junk.

Junk hopes they show will raise $60,000 – $70,000 for the Hospice and Palliative Care Center.

If you missed Friday’s show, you can see it again Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
