Mary started performing at seven and has continued through four kids and over fifty years.



She trained at BoarsHead Theatre in Michigan, doing everything from Shakespeare and musical comedy to original plays and musicals: in Virginia at Barksdale Dinner Theatre, Theatre IV and Virginia Museum Theatre; in New York at Light Opera of Manhattan, the Public Theatre and a variety of off-off Broadway; in Colorado at the Denver Center Theatre; in New Jersey at Foundation Theatre, Passage Theatre and seven seasons at McCarter Theatre. 

Now a proud Philadelphian, she has had the privilege of working at the Arden, Azuka, Interact, Lantern, Peoples Light and Theatre, the Prince, the Walnut, the Wilma and 1812 Productions. Mary has received five Barrymore awards; has had the thrill of performing with the Philadelphia Orchestra, received a Lunt/Fontanne Fellowship, and the 2016 Lantern Luminary Award.
