Maria Dawson

One of Women Of Whimsy’s original members, Maria was a member of Monterey’s Playback Theater, a troupe that improvised scenes based on the life stories of audience members. Maria maintains a wall of silence about her nefarious theatrical beginnings – “Improv just sort of happened to me – spur of the moment, if you know what I mean.”  However, her high energy and bigger than life stage presence reveals her love of making things up on the spot. Favorite things:  being an elementary school drama teacher, the Beatles, gardening, and Milk Duds.
