The RI Mediators Association hosted a special evening as Charlie Hall's "Ocean State Follies" invaded our annual Celebrate Mediation RI !

Last year, the food and camaraderie was great and so was our speaker Mayor Avedesian of Warwick.

This year, we arranged for a special presentation.  

The ‘godfather’ of Rhode Island comedy, Charlie Hall, and his talented crew brought their riotous act to the Rhode Island Mediators Association Annual Celebrate Mediation RI May Event on Tuesday, May 14th, 2013.

The troupe performed at the 1149 Restaurant in Warwick, RI. 
with right-on skits spoofing local politics, politicians and institutions.  Anything, and anyone, in the news is fair game for this fun-loving crew. 

The troupe constantly adds new spoofs, so the show is always fresh in its 'Only in "Rodylin'' Style. 

The Follies are now into their 21st year of spoofing RI, and still refusing to "act like an adult".  This award-winning comedy cabaret has been named RI's Best Comedy Show multiple times by RI Monthly Magazine. 

The Providence Journal has called the show "sharp, tuneful and wickedly funny .... genius!" 
Whether you are an old fan, or have never seen the "Follies", its a "must-see" evening!
