Rosalyn moved to Dunedin with her husband Don in 2002. Shortly thereafter, she began the search to join a community theatre. That search led her to West Coast Players, where she has been an active member ever since. Rosalyn has appeared on the West Coast Players stage in several productions and has also won two S.T.A.R. Awards during her tenure. Some of her favorite productions include Come Blow Your Horn (S.T.A.R. Award), 45 Seconds From Broadway (S.T.A.R. Award), The Constant Wife, Regrets Only, and the very first production presented at the current West Coast Players home, Abie’s Irish Rose. In addition to having stage managed and occasionally working behind the scenes, she has previously served as secretary on the board of directors and has once again graciously accepted that responsibility. Both Rosalyn and her husband also serve West Coast Players in other capacities and agree that the theatre is an important part of their lives.
