Marilyn has recently retired with over 25 years’ experience in the television
industry working primarily as a Producer, Director, Writer and Video Editor.

Marilyn’s life-long passion for the arts and especially live theatre, inspired her to run
(Kids in The Spotlight) a two-week summer theatre/video arts camp in the Trenton area
for four consecutive summers. “Watching those young folks gain confidence as they learned new and exciting skills, not only on the stage, but behind the scenes too, was so
thrilling for me.”

Marilyn is a relatively new resident to the Perth area, having moved to the area a couple years ago. She has since played an active part in several Studio Theatre productions -most recently at the helm of ‘Ethan Claymore’s Christmas’ and ‘The Attic’.  Marilyn was
delighted and proud to have received a Best Director nomination in Lindsay On., for her directing of “The Attic” at the Eastern Ontario Drama League One-Act Festival in the fall
of 2022.

While Marilyn has been on stage a few times, she much prefers to sit in the director’s
chair. She looks forward to this spring and doing just that for the production of “The Diary of Anne Frank”.  Some of Marilyn’s previous directing highlights include;  A
Streetcar Named Desire (Tennessee Williams); Steel Magnolias (Robert Harling);  The Melville Boys  (Norm Foster);  The Best Christmas Pageant Ever  (Barbara Robinson) and  A Little Something for the Ducks (Jean Lennox Toddie).
