high school career, Dawn Marie studied all aspects of theatre and film,
both technical and performing. She had a staring roll in a cable
TV series, which ran for two years. She also did radio commercials
and dabbled in the stand up comedy field. In 1988, Dawn Marie's dabbling
became a passion as she was one of the youngest comedians to work stand
up at a local comedy club as a regular. She was also one of the original
members of WAITT (Washington Area Improvisational
Teen Theatre). Through WAITT, Dawn Marie did many short
films and also won awards for her excellence in acting. In 1989,

community. Despite obstacles in her life, she continued to reach

Club 21". In 1989, Dawn Marie did a commercial/infomercial

kids. For the past 12 years she has coached kids in improvisation
and Shakespeare. She has directed her students in several Shakespearean
plays that were taken to the Folger Theatres'
