Directors Rosemary Knight and Dawn Achin met in 2013 on the set of "Dearly Beloved" at the Pineapple Playhouse in Fort Pierce, FL. Dawn was assistant director of the show, while Rosemary played one of the leads, Honey Raye Futrelle. The following year, Dawn would direct her first show, "Love, Sex and the IRS," in which Rosemary would act in the supporting role of Vivian Trachtman. Both shows were among the most successful in the community theatre's history. In the years since, Rosemary and Dawn have worked on numerous shows for various local community theatre and performing arts centers, as directors, assistant directors, stage managers and, of course, actors.
In honor of their successful partnership, the two women will begin and end the 2019 season in familiar roles. Dawn will direct the first show of the season, "On Golden Pond" and in which Rosemary will perform the supporting role of Chelsea. The last show of the season will be the very funny "Christmas Belles," the sequel to "Dearly Beloved." Once again, Dawn will direct and Rosemary will once again play Honey Raye Futrelle.
The goal of Treasure Coast Theatre is to offer quality entertainment to theater patrons on the Treasure Coast. This season, the Theatre will be producing award-winning dramas, comedies and farces.
Rosemary has been active in theater for over 35 years. She graduated from Fordham University with a minor in theater and has acted in or directed over 40 community theatre and semi-professional productions in New York, Boston, and Florida.
Dawn’s theater journey began in Port St. Lucie high school, when she first served as a stage manager before moving on to direct, produce and perform in more than thirty productions in various community theatre companies in Florida.
