Don’s current news
Currently in rehearsal for various roles/Ensemble in Origin Story, written and directed by Alex Goebel, for Minnesota Fringe Festival, August 2019.
Having retired from a long run as an English professor at Minnesota State University, Mankato, I've returned to my earlier love of theater and acting. I feel fortunate to have been cast in seven plays over the last two years and look forward to further chances to interact with the artists and audiences in this community that values theater so highly.
