Meet Dulcy Rogers & Dawn Barnes: Extraordinary Role Mommies
Our latest Blog Talk Radio show featured a double dose of inspiration when we got the chance to speak with actress and playwright Dulcy Rogers and female karate expert and entrepreneur Dawn Barnes.
Actress/playwright Dulcy Rogers has performed in New York and regional theatre, as well as in several new plays off Broadway. After moving to Los Angeles she guest starred on many sitcoms including "Frasier", "Wings", "The Savages", "Pursuit of Happiness," "The Drew Carey Show," "The Caroline Rhea Show" (in which she performed and wrote) as well as acted in such movies as "Father of the Bride II", "Rude Awakening", "Certain Guys" and "Almost Home" -- a short film she wrote herself, which was seen around the country on the film festival circuit. She wrote and performed her one woman show Ruth Draper and Her Cast of Characters, as well as developed two shows for television--one at the WB for herself and later another for her husband Diedrich Bader at CBS. Her latest play, "I Am A Tree" is currently playing at the Lillian Theater in Santa Monica. Dulcy shares amazing stories about her childhood and how she has managed to pursue her passion for writing and acting throughout her life.
