Theatre is about telling the truth.

Artistic growth is, more than anything else, a refining of the sense of truthfulness.
The stupid believe that to be truthful is easy; only the artist, the great artist, knows how difficult it is.” — Willa Cather, The Song of the Lark

“Powerful, exciting and transformative-all describe Donna Davis’ work. After the workshop, I went to my first audition and won a role. After the performances, no one knew this had been my first play.”
 —Kathy Owens

 “I have taken Donna’s workshop 4 times, and I know I will take it again. I get something new each time. Whether as a beginner or an experienced actor, one can always learn and hone their craft in this class.”
—Larry LePaule
