Stacy Dominguez

President

Stacy has had a lifelong love of theater and entertaining since performing in grade school talent shows.  Her hobby growing up was reading everything she could about the great movie musicals from the Golden age of Hollywood dreaming that someday she would perform in front of live audiences on a great stage.

Stacy joined the Spectacular Follies in 2008 as a showgirl and has continued in that role in many shows donning the feathers and beads she loves to wear.  Over the years she has enjoyed more stage time by becoming a Marilyn Monroe tribute artist with a twist; Stacy made Marilyn funny by doing comic monologues to the audience’s enjoyment. Stacy enjoyed a 25-year career in advertising and public relations with some of Dallas’ largest agencies. When she retired from the working world and having been part of the Follies family for several years, she joined the board of directors to help create new advertising and promotional pieces. After sitting on the board for several years, she became president and loves leading the way for the Follies and hopes her legacy will be that the Follies will go on long into the future.
