The top-of-the-bill attraction in Whitehorse is the Frantic Follies (tel. 867/668-2042; www.franticfollies.com), a singing, dancing, clowning, and declaiming Gold Rush revue that has become famous throughout the North. The show is an entertaining mélange of skits; music-hall drollery; whooping, high-kicking, garter-flashing cancan dancers; sentimental ballads; and deadpan corn, interspersed with rolling recitations of Robert Service's poetry. Shows take place nightly May through September at the Westmark Whitehorse Hotel (tel. 800/544-0970). Tickets are C$24 adults, C$10 children 12 and under.
