Theater

I began my theatre career in first grade by playing the last little apple of the season. (Wish I had some pictures of that!)

I did a few more plays in high school like The Doctor in Spite of Himself, but during college I was too busy getting a degree in music education to act. In Vermont I appeared with other teachers as a sloppy housemaid who loved to make lemon pies in a play best forgotten. I also appeared with my students as Mother Otter in a fun production of Wind in the Willows. (I got to wear a bonnet and a tail for that one.)

Marilyn D. Anderson in Prince Charming My present home town has a great little theatre, and I've had the privilege of playing lots of great parts. These pictures are of me as Prince Charming's mom in Cinderella (left) and a sweet young thing in a melodrama named The Drunkard(right). Marilyn D. Anderson in The Drunkard

The Fourth Wise Man

During my years of teaching general music, I always wrote plays for my kids to perform. Later I did the same for my church youth group. One even got published.

The Fourth Wise Man is a play I wrote for my Sunday School to perform at Christmas. Now you can perform it too. It's available from Dramatic Publishing.

For Christmas several years ago, the Little Theatre of Bedford chose to stage this play with a cast composed entirely of children. We had a wonderful 4-night run and made more money than the theatre did on Little Shop of Horrors.
