Tribute to a Genius

It’s a shame someone has died so early in Life…RIP Mr. Damien Moye but the reality is so glaring or at least it should be to everyone as much as it is to me. I thank the family that they would included his work with New Voices/New Visions as a part of his program.

We have always trusted theses good people back to his father’s days. Thankful!

Donate in Support of Damien Moye memory and keep it Alive!

To know him was to love him

Damien was a friend and to many of us if you ever got to know him an leader of our community with his wonderfully charismatic sense of humor, which made him the easiest casting Git-Low. I’m not sure anyone else could have pulled off this role so believable.

Damien was part of 19 young student actors, started in a room in the local arts council and went on to Rochelle Middle School with the production of Purlie Victorious.  In that same spirit we will be launching our next production in honor (with a special tribute) to him. Please join us and donate what you can to our next production as we try to raise $1000 to this project of New Voices/New Visions.  We believe it is a worthy project that he would of love to assist. The $1000 is only a part of the $10,000 budget needed to launch the full production. See our investment guide here or contact us to learn more of how you can be a part of this special event.

Please excuse while our imaging program is down

The Kinston community was a special place to him as he visited yearly and was well aware of our plight in the community as highlighted in this video read by Charles Hannibal.

What talent are we looking for?

The old adage, there is no Theatre without the Box Office has never been more true. Theatre has to have administrator’s, marketing and promotional professionals and a committed Board of Directors to thrive first and foremost.
