Mildred returns to the theatre after a hiatus of 30 years. In "another lifetime," she acted, directed and costumed in community theatres in Fort Worth and South Bend, Indiana and taught theatre in high school, university and at Casa Manana Theatre in Fort Worth. Favorite roles include Edith in THE WOMEN, Frosine in THE MISER and madame Elizabeth in LOOK HOMEWARD, ANGEL. She has a BFA and MFA in theatre from TCU.
The past twenty years she has spent in another love--showing purebred dogs. She has a kennel full of beagles and is still active in that sport. She counts herself very lucky to having a loving, patient husband of 28 years, Sam.
"I auditioned for the play hoping for a part--what I received was the opportunity to meet a group of the most interesting, funny, caring and overall amazing women!"
