Mary Anne has the theatre bug …

She's been doing community theatre for more years than she'd care to admit. She's played lots of roles both onstage and off. She's especially proud of the times when she wrote, directed, and performed in her own one acts, "Fires in the Village," Acts of Destiny," and "The Most Dangerous Enemy."

Among her favorite onstage roles are Rose from "Gypsy," Reno Sweeney from "Anything Goes," The Witch in "Into the Woods," Sheila in "A Chorus Line," Esther in "Two by Two," Mrs. Malloy in "Hello Dolly," and Mame in the play "Auntie Mame." Her favorite directing jobs were for "Oklahoma" which she also choreographed, "The Man Who Came to Dinner," and "Enchanted April." Her favorite choreography job was for "Guys and Dolls."

Even when she can't be part of a production, she likes to cheer them on. If you look around, there's always a group looking for new members or an audience. These are a few of Mary Anne's favorite community theatre groups:

The Heights Players -

Our Town Theatre Group -
