Esther Williams, eat your heart out.
Friday Harbor’s irrepressible Francie Hansen, creator of county Fair’s Trashion Fashion Show, has found a new medium to mine—water.
Hansen together with a dozen island mermaids will perform what is being loosely described as a water ballet, “Francie’s Follies”, as a benefit to provide swimming lessons for children that may not be able to afford them.
Guaranteed to be a splash, this don’t-miss performance will get under way at San Juan Island Fitness, 435 Argyle Ave., April 18, beginning at 7 p.m. Suggested donation is $10 for adults.
Expect the unexpected and a fun-filled, yet graceful, performance when Francie “Flounder” Hansen and her school of mermaids hit the pool; the show includes a guest performance by Mark “King Neptune” Cunningham.
