Literary & Dramatic Arts

Empowering artistic expression.
"We seek those who have been bitten by the acting bug, the gift of gab, an awesome speaking voice, the spirit of debate, comic and dramatic relief, and the writing spirit of Hemingway"
– Andrea Jackson.
Like an artist with blank canvas, he creates a masterpiece. The goal is to provide his guests with an unforgettable feast. With skillful hands and talent, he makes light work of it. Chopping, mixing and stirring until all the pieces fit.
With pride he serves each dinner, inspecting each fine detail. It must look flawless in his eyes if he is not to fail. His reward is smiling faces, empty plates with nothing left. No higher compliment can be paid to the Artist - the Master - the Chef
