Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who came out to see our 51st Annual Melodrama “No Name City or Florence, the Finest Seat in the County” which ran May 7 – 9th, 2015.  Without your involvement and support, we could not do what we do for the area of Florence and the Florence Historical Society.  Thank you again!

Audition Notice: Engaged! A Farcical Comedy in Three Acts


This year I am very excited to have been chosen to direct a show that will leave the audience rolling in their seats. Engaged! brings us a man in love with the idea of being in love. He proposes to every woman he sees, and things get a little tricky when he proposes to his best friend’s gal – and she falls for it! The dialogue in this show is timeless. Written and first performed in 1877 you will not believe how this comedy continues to make audiences laugh out loud. Show dates are August 13, 14, and 15. Auditions will be held Sunday, June 7, at 6:00 PM and Monday, June 8, and 7:00 PM. I’ll need 5 men and 5 women to round out this cast (a few smaller parts will require less rehearsal time). I look forward to seeing many of you at auditions!

– Molly Anderson, Director

2015 Historic Florence Days Parade

After a brief hiatus, the Florentine Players participated in the 2015 Historic Florence Days Parade. The Players’ very own Pistol Pete led the charge to renovate a trailer and build a new float just in time for this year’s parade!

The 2015 Florence Days parade theme was “Salute to Education”.  The path traveled was from Redick Avenue to Fillmore Street.  The Grand Marshal was Gene Haynes, Principal of North High School.  The parade was led by the 2015 Honor Guard, the Boy Scouts Troop 20.

The 2015 parade was organized by Dick Brown of Dick’s Place (for the Florence Historical Foundation).
