In their words: In the year 2007 A.D, after ages of dark and improv-less turmoil, 
there arose an appointed few who sought to bring a unique light into this world.
They named themselves The CLAY CROWS. 
Many moons have passed since that day, 
and still the CROWS continue their legacy
with weekly workshops and epic performances.

In other words: The CLAY CROWS are PLU's resident improv team. Their audition-based group performs theatre created on the spot for audiences every month. Auditions are held a few times a year, depending on the size of the team. Anyone is eligible to audition, though it is recommended that those interested come to multiple workshops.
