Life Is So Good at Durham Academy, Durham, NC

Durham Academy

On February 19th, 2016, actor and playwright Mike Wiley was joined on the stage of Taylor Hall by fellow actor and DA parent David zum Brunnen, as the two brought the book "Life Is So Good" to life for DA Middle Schoolers. It's the incredible true story of 103-year-old George Dawson, a slave's grandson who learned to read at age 98. See more photos from the performance at

Compliment: Night Before Christmas Carol, New Bern, NC

"I attended The Night Before Christmas Carol in New Bern, NC in December. I'm just writing to say what a phenomenal job the actor did! Not only that but I had brought my special needs son with me and the actor went out of his way after the performance to say hello to my son. I can't tell you how much this meant to me! That kind of compassion is the Best Christmas Present Ever!!!" -Sharee Frogley  Patron at New Bern Public Library
