Dee Dunn (1941 - 2016)
On February 14th, the Cincinnati theater community lost a dear friend when Dee Dunn passed away at the age of 74. Mariemont audiences would know her best as Betty from our September 2011 production of The Foreigner (pictured above). However, she also directed November 2013’s The Lion in Winter and costumed recent MPI productions such as You Can’t Take It With You and Chapter Two. A long-time member of CenterStage Players and The Drama Workshop, Dee was recognized by ACT-Cincinnati in June 2015 with the Art Rouse Award for her exceptional commitment and dedication to our theater community. As MPI member Burt McCollum puts it, “Dee embodied the best of what community theater strives to be. She was a crown jewel.” We will miss her deeply.
