Miss Stanley, who nows lives in Walla Walla, Washington, won a Tony Award  in the category of Best Featured Actress in a Musical in the 1958-1959 season as Lois Lee in the original production of Goldilocks.

Ron Daum, the director of Goldilocks, has been in communication with Miss Stanley about her experiences in the show and invited her to attend.

Of special note:
Several years ago Miss Stanley lost many of her Broadway mementos including her Tony Award for Goldilocks, in  a fire. Although a Tony Award is irreplaceable, Lakewood, in honor of Miss Stanley's work, presented an honorary award to commemorate her work in the American theatre at the conclusion of the performance on Friday April 20, 2012.
