A BIT ABOUT US
WHO WE ARE
Danielle Mercado (Company Founder and Director)
Danielle Mercado has been directing for several years and is arguably the most promising upcoming talent on the local theatre scene. With years of experience working with children and young adults, she is a wiz at developing performers' talents and bringing a cast together to create something truly remarkable. She brings substance, humor and quality to performances, and her personality shines not only on the stage but off. Her approach to story telling is unique in that it appeals to the greater public who are not regular theatre goers or Shakespeare experts. Making the arts accessible and enjoyable for everyone is part of her ongoing mission. She works closely with her actors and students to help them realize their greatest potential, and teaches them the importance of serving others as opposed to grabbing the spotlight. In this way she makes everyone a star.
