Dorothy (Dot) came late to theater but has enjoyed playing sweet little old ladies and not-so-sweet little old ladies in various settings. When she's not on stage she finds other ways to volunteer at Center on the Square. She is also a writer, having published 3 books and numerous short stories.  Her play, RIP Emma Lou Briggs was presented on the COTS stage in 2011. You can visit her website and blog at

Favorite quote from a stage play:  "It's a well known fact that if you keep flint in one drawer and steel in the other you're not going to strike any fires."  - Mrs. Paroo in The Music Man
