Rosemarie is a multi-talented actor/entertainer/impersonator/mime/teacher.At the age of five she danced (for a local dance company) in The Nutcracker, with the New York Ballet, and that was probably the beginning of her love of theatre. As with many actors she has been involved in many aspects of the theatre: directing, costume design, makeup design, choreography, teaching, and writing. In the past few years she has specialized in impersonations and mime. As an entertainer she has donned a myriad of characters and costumes for major corporations and private events. She enjoys her opportunities to be creative no matter what the venue. She sees herself being more involved in TV and film in the future and looks forward to many new creative experiences. Some of her accomplishments are listed on this page.

Rosemarie began the San Diego based impersonators' association with several other impersonators as a social and business group. The intention of the group was to develop the members to the highest standards as performers and to help San Diego based performers to be recognized by the LA faction as talented professionals. 98% of the impersonators' association do live stage performance, as well as mix and mingle. The San Diego group has reached its goals and perform all over the world. Most of the original members are still in association and help each other with work related opportunities. They are still available and can be contacted through this web site.



The intention of this company is to educate children on the importance of body movement and self expression. The goal is to affect as many children as possible. The company has been together since 1996, and has worked at several children's and arts festivals all over Southern California. They are presently giving performances and work shops through the San Diego School System. The members of the company are dedicated to keeping mime a recognized art form. The players also enjoy entertaining the big kids at parties, corporate events, and street fairs. The spontaneous standing ovation given by 220 children at a recent workshop lets the company know that they are on the right track.
