Dorothy “Dot” Moore founded The Whole Backstage Community Theatre of Guntersville 44 years ago, and has continued to be its foremost leader and visionary.
As a high school teacher and volunteer crusader for the arts, Moore has made many outstanding contributions to her community since she moved to Marshall County 50 years ago. Moore has received numerous honors and recognitions, including the Alabama Governor’s Award for Volunteers in the Arts, and was honored as one of the 100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century in the City of Guntersville.
Moore received a master’s degree in fine arts from the University of Montevallo.
She lives to share her genuine and unselfish love for others, especially children and teenagers. Other than being a mother, Moore says, “My proudest accomplishment is my ability to be able to teach. This has allowed me to educate many people of all ages so they are able to achieve far more than they ever expected of themselves.”
