Each Year we welcome hundreds of people who come to experience the greatest stories by the greatest story tellers. With a decade of bringing the stories of faith to life on stage, we have had an amazing journey.
But how did we get here?
Growing up in the suburbs of Springfield, New Jersey, Donna's fourth grade teacher encouraged her to audition for the lead role of the school play. After landing the lead role and receiving a standing ovation for her performance, Donna was inspired by how theater served her community and set her sights on a career in theater. However no dream comes without difficulty. After being sexually molested, Donna withdrew and would not decorate the stage again until her adult hood.
Writing poetry and short stories became a tool for Donna to express the pain that was in her heart. At the age of 24 she came into a very satisfying relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and was healed of her emotional pain. After marrying her husband, Cameron , the couple joined Agape Family Worship Center , Rahway, New Jersey. There, Donna met the late Minister Barbara Hayward who prophesied to her concerning Gods plan to use her gifts of writing and acting for his glory. Donna worked with Minister Barbara in developing a theater ministry in the church and for the next 14 years Donna served as the theater Director at the church where she co-wrote and directed "THE POINT OF IT ALL", starring BeBe Winans at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), Newark, N.J. The play attracted 6000 audience members in one day and received rave reviews.
In 2008 Donna released her first independent stage play "DON'T COUNT ME OUT" which toured New Jersey for two years and was a huge success and Donna Mosley Productions was born.
In April 2009, DMP relocated to the Lehigh Valley, and the company found a home to share inside of Touchstone Theater on the Southside of Bethlehem, Pa. We call it a theater where miracles happen. Since relocating the company has staged several inspirational stage plays such as "DIVINE INTERVENTION", THE JUDGEMENT DAY MUSICAL, RACHEL AND LEAH, ALIVE and most recently ' THIS FAR BY FAITH.
We are passionate about using our God given gifts, talents and resources to visually tell stories of faith and to sow faith into the lives of our customers and fellow workers, while seeking to be good stewards of our gifts , talents and resources.
The Message, The Music and the Ministry is what our productions are all about.
Today with a decade of offerng inspirational productions, and premiering a new musical every year, we are continuing to hone our craft and bring meaningful productions to the Lehigh Valley.
What began as a lead role in a fourth grade play and a call to serve God, grew into the DMP that you know today. We are still growing and dreaming of a day when DMP serves millions of people annually. We are humbled by the success that God has given us and we are thankful to be a family business. The Mosley family continues to work hard to bring to our customers inspirational productions that are meaningful and memorable.
As we look to the future, we are always exploring new ways of creating inspirational productions and how we might provide more opportunities to more people to experience these inspiring productions.
