Celebrate the life of Flo Greenberg: September 16, 2018

 In News

Please join us for a celebration honoring the life and work of beloved acting teach and coach Florence Salant Greenberg (March 4,1926 – September 15, 2017) on Sunday, September 16, 2018 from 1 to 4 PM at the Nyack Community Center, 58 Depew Ave, Nyack, NY 10960 (corner of Broadway).

Flo was one of Elmwood’s earliest members, active as a performer and as the co-author of Exurbia, a collection of comic sketches chronicling the challenges facing creative people living in the suburbs in the 1960s. The piece was originally created as a fund-raiser for the theater but became so popular that it went “on tour” in Rockland.

From 1966 until 1984 Flo was the drama coach at Nyack High School, teaching speech and directing the school’s acclaimed student productions of musicals and dramatic plays.

During those years, Flo performed Off-Broadway, taught Drama at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in the Bronx and at Rockland Community College, and taught acting privately at her home in Upper Nyack and in her Manhattan studio, The Actors’ Workshop. Primarily children and young adults, many of her students have gone on to substantial careers.

Flo is remembered for her ability to discover and encourage talent, her optimism, her easy laughter and for her kind, generous and loving heart. She was a great lady of the theatre and will be missed by all who had the good fortune to know her.
