Paula Mabryâ€™s dedication to theatre has made a mark that, some say, completely transformed Starkvilleâ€™s theatre scene.
Joe Ray Underwood, a friend of Mabryâ€™s for more than 30 years, said Mabry helped make the Starkville High School theatre program what it is today, has played a key role for many years in the Mississippi State University Summer Scholars program and has been heavily involved in the Starkville Community Theatre, Starkville Area Arts Council, and other organizations.
