When you wish upon a star, what do you wish for?  The littlest elf (Zhade Beers), wishes that the star that fell from above could somehow be placed back up in the sky, where she thinks it belongs.  The Keeper of the Stars (played by Tamara Szalewski) however, has some words of wisdom to help the little elf and her elf friends to learn a lesson about love and light within your own heart.  Children’s Repertory of OR Workshops (C.R.O.W.) invites you to this year’s Holly Jolly Follies on November 30th, December 1st, and December 2nd at the Florence Events Center.  Can you help the littlest elf with her mission?

This year’s poignant central theme was penned by local author, Rose Ellen Jacobson, and the show is directed by her daughter and C.R.O.W. Artistic Director, Melanie Heard.  An army of incredible volunteers has already been collecting props, planning scenery, arranging music, working on special effects, preparing costumes, and much more.  A true variety show with performers of all ages, this year’s Follies features many new and wonderful surprises, including stellar vocal solos and duos, live instruments, comedic interludes, small and large group numbers, and of course, C.R.O.W.’s Flight Dance Team, which will perform beautiful dance choreography. Florence’s own Marty Adams will tickle the ivories, along with his band of magnificent musicians.  Rumor has it that the “Tutu Dads” will also be back and ready to electrify you! “The sparkling stars of Florence shine incredibly brightly in this year’s show,” says Director, Melanie Heard.  “Come let us put you in the Holiday mood!”

The 2018 Holly Jolly Follies will be presented at the Florence Events Center November 30th – December 2nd – Friday and Saturday at 7 PM, and Sunday at 2 PM.  Tickets are $18 for adults/$10 for kids 12 and under.  Proceeds support scholarships for kids in the arts, and C.R.O.W.’s ongoing arts programming.  Tickets can be purchased by calling (541)997-1994 or by visiting www.eventcenter.org.  Please remember to bring a non-perishable item for the Food Share collection bins.  “Star light, Star bright, hope to see you Opening Night!” says Heard.
