An OC native, Terry Winkler grew up in Corona del Mar when it was actually a sleepy beach town in the early 60’s. She’s seen OC grow from orange groves to a diverse metropolis offering a wide range of theater and entertainment venues for children, college students, community players and professionals. Terry left Orange County to attend San Diego State University’s Theatre Arts program and studied under some of theater’s best talents, including playwright Tom Stoppard. After college, Terry put her theater experience to use as an actress on stage, in TV commercials, and most recently has been focusing on directing original plays by local Orange County playwrights. Her greatest and most challenging role is playing Mom to her daughter and son in their daily life here in the OC. Terry is the founder of Enter Stage Write, an Orange County theater, entertainment and lifestyle website.
