A website to honor Muriel Sharon (1918 – 1996)

Muriel Sharon

“Muriel was the Chairman of the Children’s Acting Department of the 92nd Street YM-YWHA from 1947-1970.  She was the Artistic Director of the Junior Program at The Neighborhood Playhouse, taught child drama at Cornell University and Ithaca College and was the founder of The Pocket Players, Inc., a theater company that toured New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and eastern Pennsylvania with adult and child actors. 

She produced plays that could rival any Broadway or regional theater with costumes that were works of art, as memorable to the child actors as much as the plays themselves, props that were as hilarious as they were true and scenery that popped out of the world of 3-dimensional Victorian postcards.”
