Director

As director, I believe that I am the steward of the story and curator of the aesthetic. My purpose is to empower, encourage, and uplift our artistic team to create a compelling, focused, polished presentation for our audience.

Dulcie’s artistry shines in her ability to mold a cast into an ensemble team, draw out the best performance from each individual, and create a high quality, imaginative theatrical adventure! Her direction of Seussical the Musical for Fort Collins Children’s Theatre not only met our already high bar of excellence, but raised it a notch for future productions. Lucky for FCCT, she’ll direct for us again!
— Karen Christophersen, Producer, Fort Collins Children's Theatre
Dulcie is a compassionate, professional and prepared director. She has the ability to listen and collaborate; while still having a distinct view point. She gave me the opportunity to make strong choices and was there to help me nuance and polish them.
— Sydney Parks Smith, Actor, OpenStage Theatre & Co
I worked closely with Dulcie Willis in a beautiful play, Almost, Maine, and still regard it as one of my favorite experiences. She understands how to work within the art community as a great support for all those around. She helps others discover the enjoyment, beauty, fulfillment, and companionship through art that we are all looking to find.
— Cary Klataske, Actor
I have worked with Dulcie on Almost Maine, I,Claudia, Fringe, and much much more. I promised myself our first production working together that I will audition for everything she ever does! She is an inspiring, organized, creative, intuitive, full of passion and life, and a lover of collaboration. She is an absolutely dream to work with, which is why she’s the first one I call!
