All of town’s a stage


Children's Repertory of Oregon Workshops (CROW) performs mini show around Florence

Aug. 18, 2021 — CROW Advanced Acting Students presented three showings of their “History of Live Theater” play around town on Friday. Two performances drew large crowds at the Port of Siuslaw Boardwalk and Gazebo Park in Historic Old Town Florence. The students wrote and then acted in the play, which was directed by CROW Artistic Director Melanie Heard and her colleague Diane David. The students also created their own set, which had scenic design from Brian Sandahl. The show drew laughter as the students showed theater’s progression from ancient Greece to “Hamilton,” complete with singing, soliloquy and stage deaths. For more information, visit
