Marylin McGinnis and David McElroy

Oklahoma native with a master’s degree from the University of Arkansas, McElroy was a self-described “nomad” wandering from coast to coast until meeting McGinnis while they were both performing summer stock in Wisconsin. After spending several years in both New York and Minnesota, the couple and their children moved to Orlando in 1995. “McElroy and McGinnis joined with friends to found Playwrights’ Round Table, which has now mentored emerging authors for over 20 years. Then the pair created Southern Winds Theatre.
