About Me

“It’s Dodie Brown, who was director of the St. Peter’s choir for 35 years. Dodie is among a small handful of local actors who have achieved national recognition and who never fails to elicit spontaneous applause when they first come on stage.

Dodie has worked with luminaries in the theatre for many, many years and is loved by audiences and critics alike. She and (husband) Bud have been members of St. Peters since the church was built – or close to that time. Dodie and Bud are devout Christians and Dodie is a natural-born caregiver and mentor to anyone who needs her cheerful, upbeat and brilliant intervention.”
