Doris French Memorial
Dorie's first acting role at PCS was as Dolly Fabian in Once More with Feeling in 1962. She went on to play roughly 20 more roles at PCS, ranging from slapstick to high drama, including: Elizabeth Corban in Catch Me if You Can; Marion Hollander in Don’t Drink the Water; Norma Hubley in Plaza Suite; Mrs. Van Daan in The Diary of Anne Frank; and Clairee in Steel Magnolias. She was a master of accents, whether British, Irish, French, “Brooklyn”, or Southern, from a bereaved widow in All the Way Home to Regina Giddens in The Little Foxes. Her final PCS role was in a production of Champagne Charlie Stakes in 2007. In 2014, PCS presented Dorie with a Member Laureate lifetime achievement award, the highest honor it can bestow upon a member. She remained a fixture in the audience, and an enthusiastic supporter for many years after retiring from active participation.
