Dolores decided that she wanted to do community theater when she appeared in her first play as a featured nun in The Sound of Music with the Town Players. She continued with the Town Players as Claire in The Secret Garden and was also in Carousel. Dolores was in both Iolanthe and The Most Happy Fella with the West Marin Players. She sings with the Dominican Corale, which produces two concerts a year. She is also a soloist in the 19th Avenue Baptist choir in San Francisco.
Dolores is a member of the Advisory Committee for the Marin Musical Theatre Company.
