Since 2018, Clarion Performing Arts Center and the Grant Avenue Follies have collaborated and supported each other in numerous community-driven projects.
Grant Avenue Follies preserve the history and continue the legacy of San Francisco Chinatown’s Nightclub era (1938-1970.) The cabaret troupe provides song and dance entertainment in senior homes and appearances to benefit charitable organizations. The Follies’ mission is to uplift the spirit of the elderly, the sick and bring hope and joy to the audiences in the Bay Area and around the world.
Situated in the heart of San Francisco Chinatown, Clarion Performing Arts Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It provides an honorable and safe space for education and live performance opportunities for youth, adults and seniors. Artistic projects in music, poetry, theater and cinema are organized throughout the year to amplify the voice of Asian Americans, the marginalized, and the youth from low income/immigrant families.
Together, the Follies and the Clarion have produced many memorable shows such as M**der at the Forbidden City Nightclub, Firecracker Burlesque, and most recently, the Gai Mou Sou Rap to stand against anti-Asian hate crimes and violence to elders. The Rap has gone viral with 86k views on YouTube and gained much media attention.
Showgirl Magic Museum, curated and maintained by the Follies, has also established its home in the underground alcove of the Clarion.
We invite you to be a part of the giving community that sustains the viability of Grant Avenue Follies and Clarion Performing Arts Center. Your presence at the Dazzling Tigers Fashion Show & Luncheon will give us much joy and energy.
