A Christmas Carol Presented by
Theatre Palisades Actors' Troup

In Memoriam: Sherry Coon

It is with great sadness that the Board of Theatre Palisades notifies you of the passing of Sherry Coon (1950-2020), a stalwart of our company. Sherry was involved as an actor, director, and Member of the Board of Directors for many years, going back to the days that shows were presented in the gym at Rustic Park in Pacific Palisades. Sherry directed the production of Auntie Mame which was the opening presentation at the then-brand-new Pierson Playhouse in the fall of 1988.

An active member of Theatre Palisades since 1978, Sherry had served as President, Secretary and Vice President of Administration. Her committee work included Costume, Play Recommendation, Director Recommendation, and Membership Entertainment. She co-chaired the Actors Workshop with Andrew Frew, and she was an active member of Theatre Palisades Actors' Troupe since its formation in 2013. She also worked as a producer, costume designer, actor, and light and sound technician. She was the 2001 recipient of Theatre Palisades' Cristofer Cariello award (initiated in 1998 to recognize those who repeatedly excel in all aspects of creating live theatre and whose body of work shows outstanding production creativity).

Sherry had an encyclopedic knowledge of plays and theatre. One of Sherry's most memorable stints was as the director of Twelve Angry Men in 2012, where she met the challenge of a difficult play and created an unforgettable production.

Sherry played many roles over the years including Mrs. Boyle in The Mousetrap, Miss Maudie in To Kill a Mockingbird and Dr. Graham in Black Coffee. Most recently, Sherry headlined as Ouiser Bourdeaux in our production of Steel Magnolias, a character with whom she felt a great affinity. Like Ouiser, Sherry was brilliant, acerbic, funny and all of these qualities surrounded a heart of gold.

She will be missed.
