Ethics Follies®is an original musical production that has surprised many with its professional look and sound.The two-hour production features judges and attorneys in the roles of attorneys, business leaders and politicians making good and bad ethical decisions. To take the show to a professional level of entertainment, professional actors are paired with the San Antonio attorneys, judges and other professionals. Guests such as the nationally syndicated columnist "Heloise," singer Rick Cavender and U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Edward Prado have joined the cast to show their support for encouraging ethical behavior in the legal profession.
ACC South Central Texas chapter has received national acclaim for the Ethics Follies and has produced an ethics conference in San Antonio for thirteen years, with fully produced musical productions at the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre for the last three years.By writing, producing and staging a musical comedy based on ethics and white-collar crime and ethics headlines each year, ACC's membership can meet other professionals, network and have a creative outlet that helps others. They accomplish their mission of raising ethics awareness and also achieve their mission of giving back to San Antonio with ACC's donation of a significant portion of the net profits from the Follies to the Community Justice Program.
