Most of you know her because of her role as “Mary Ann” on the longest running show in the history of Television syndication -- Gilligan’s Island. Yes, she is proud of her role and is always pleased when at least three generations greet her all over the world.
But there is so much more to Dawn Wells than Mary Ann. She not only has done over 60 theatrical productions--from Neil Simon to Tennessee Williams, she has done over 120 television shows, most recently a pilot produced, written and directed by Fran Drescher, four feature films, commercials, voices overs, countless television and radio talk shows, including “The Today Show”, “Regis and Kathy Lee”, Tom Snyder and Rosie O’Donnell.
She has hosted her own female fishing show called “Dawn Wells Reel Adventures,” and has served as a journalist, known as the Castaway Correspondent, for the Australian show “Midday” interviewing such talents as Mel Gibson, Nick Nolte, Demi Moore, Tom Hanks, Eddie Murphy, Rene Russo and Julia Roberts to name a few. Dawn guested as “Chef Du Jour” for a week on the TV Food Network which is no surprise as she has written her own cookbook. “Mary Ann’s Gilligan's Island Cookbook”, consists mainly of three generations of family recipes.
She hosted the CBS variety show called “TV’s All Time Favorites”. For fourteen years, wearing her producers hat, she also hosts and co-produces the Children’s Miracle Network Broadcast for mid- Missouri. As a producer Dawn has several projects in the wings, including a play she has optioned called “A Higher Place In Heaven” by Pamela Parker, as well as being partners with MPH Entertainment to produce and develop several projects for film and television. In addition, Dawn is also working on a “Gilligan’s Island” retrospective. Dawn is a former Miss Nevada in the Miss America Pageant, in addition to being an actress, author, journalist, motivational speaker, business women, entrepreneur, chef and volunteer. She's in constant demand for personal appearances and speaking engagements. She has even found time to create a line of clothing for the physically challenged, called the Wishing Wells Collections.
Dawn has served on many boards including as a trustee for Stephens College and Vice President of the Stephens Alumnae Association Board (one of her alma maters). She is also a graduate of the University of Washington, receiving her degree in Theater Arts. She serves on the University of Missouri Children's Hospital Advisory Board and on the advisory board of Woman In Film and Video and is also a New Ventura Theater Co. board member. In addition, Dawn is the spokesperson for the Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, TN., and she even helped establish the Whale Sanctuary in Antarctica with the International Wildlife Coalition.
Even with her busy life, Dawn always finds time for students across the country. She has served as artist in residence and also taught a master class while doing theater with the students at numerous colleges across the U.S.; some of which are Stephens College, Purdue University, Harding University, and University of Nevada Reno, just to name a few.
Some of her awards include Case Award for Education, YMCA Woman of the Year, Alpha Chi Omega Volunteer of the Year Award, and Stephens College Outstanding Alumnae as well as graduation speaker. Dawn most recently received the first American Icon Award from Women in Film and Video, in Washington D.C. with the rest of the Castaways.
Dawn is an avid world traveler, having climbed the Mountains in Rwanda to view the mountain gorillas, canoed the Solomon Islands where women had never been before, and she has just completed her fourth Safari and recently returned from a trip around the world on the Concorde. Dawn is certainly ready for the next millennium.
