Teresa Brown served as Chairman of the Board of Directors for NarroWay Productions from the time the company was incorporated in South Carolina in 1996. The sister of NarroWay co-founder Rebecca Martin, "Tessie" was instrumental in the foundation of NarroWay long before the company existed. Her influence shaped both the lives of Rebecca Martin and co-founder Yvonne Clark as well as the ultimate direction of the company. She played a key role in every significant decision and lended her influence to open doors that otherwise may have remained closed.
A captivating entertainer, Tessie performed on the NarroWay stage for twenty-two years. From the opening of "Two Thieves and a Savior" in 1997 to playing "Liberty" in "Samson: the Last Judge," she held roles in every major NarroWay production. Unknown to many, she concurrently battled endometrial cancer for fifteen years. She served, she sang, she ushered, she performed -- often having gone through chemotherapy treatments the same day. Her sweet smile, fiesty spirit and genuine, humble countenance created a warmth that attracted people of all ages.
Off stage, Teresa Brown was an accomplished speaker, teacher, writer and leader as well as a compassionate mother, grandmother, wife, sister, daughter, aunt and friend.
NarroWay will honor the life and legacy of the indomitable presence of Teresa Martin Brown at 3pm on Sunday, September 9, at the NarroWay Theatre.
The NarroWay Theatre is located 1/2 mile south of I-77 exit 90, just outside of Charlotte at 3327 Hwy. 21, Fort Mill SC 29715.
