Show Business


Before Maurine entered into the business of Real Estate, she spent two decades focusing on her show business career. 


A Triple Threat


Maurine's show business career, which she pursued under the name of Maurine Dawson, consisted of singing, dancing, and acting on the stage, on the television, and even on the movie screen. On top of this, Maurine starred in over ninety TV commercials and cut a record titled I'll Just Sit Here, which was published by Parks Records. She also lived in England for a year, where she spent time writing and directing films at Shepperton Studios, and she starred on two comedy records titled That Family in the White House and The Family is Back. Along with this, Maurine toured the nation with the Pat Boone Show, and worked on other variety shows such as the Perry Como Show, the Eddie Fisher show, the Don Arden Show, and the Frankie Lane Show. See partial list other credits below.


Today, Maurine still uses her acting abilities through teaching. For the last twenty-five years, Maurine has taught acting at the Julie Nation Academy
