Playwrights, Composers, Lyricists and Authors
Wendy Woolf grew up in San Diego and as a child played piano and oboe, later teaching herself guitar. Drifting away from music in high school and college, she pursued a career in genetics after graduating with a degree in Biology from UCSD in 1978. Then in 1985, Wendy joined a new local community theater group, The Park Dale Players, led by director/playwright Pat Lydersen. She continued acting with the group and in 1993 became the composer and music director. She has since composed the music to over 12 of Pat’s plays, 3 of which are published by Pioneer Drama. The Park Dale Players now conducts elementary/junior high theater camps with their zany and imaginative original musicals. Besides composing and directing, Wendy teaches art and science at local elementary schools and paints in oils. Her paintings can be viewed on her website.
