DINA MORRONE (Playwright & also playing Gina)

Dina was selected as one of the TOP TEN ACTRESSES by for her performance in The Italian In Me. She is first generation Canadian and her parents are Italian Immigrants from Calabria in Southern Italy. Dina bailed from her home town of Thunder Bay, situated on the cold, snowy shores of Lake Superior and moved to Rome, Italy, where she worked as an actress, tv host, model, writer, and voice over artist. While working in Rome, she had many magical moments. However, the highlight of her time in the Eternal City, besides seeing the Pope, was a meeting with Federico Fellini, which subsequently became the inspiration for a portion of her one woman show The Italian In Me. Dina currently works in voice over: award show announcer, feature films, video games and commercials. MOOSE ON THE LOOSE is very dear to Dina's heart. She dedicates the play to her immigrant parents and grandparents; to all their sacrifices, their long journey over; to the family, friends, relatives, and the country they left behind; to all of the tears they shed, and to all the hearts that were broken in the process. And, oh yes, this play is l o o s e l y based on true events. One day, a moose did wander into her neighbor's back yard. For more information about Dina visit
