Dory Lerew grew up on her family’s fruit farm in PA and got a taste for theatre when the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) traveled to a neighboring town and she adoryuditioned for the show! She didn’t get a part in that production but she went on to do a lot of other plays and even helped to start a community theatre in her area.

She studied theatre and education at Albion College and then toured the world as a Tour Actor/Director with MCT.

Now she lives in Missoula and works at MCT in the Tour Marketing office where she helps to schedule week-long theatre residencies in over 1,200 communities every year. Spirit at Play students love learning about acting with Dory- expressing emotions, gaining confidence, teamwork, vocabulary and thinking outside the box are just a few of the skills that children garner from engaging in theatre.

In her free time, Dory plays pickleball, cooks and goes to movies.
