My son attended Mr. C's drama camp
for three summers and loved it. The
plays they did were fun, creative, and
well written, and Doug's style with the
kids is marvelous. He has a great
sense of humor that comes through in
his productions, and the kids really
respond to him.

My son is now acting professionally in
New York and I thank Doug for giving
him such a great start.

Mr. Cole, the director of the camp, is
a wonderful, creative, gifted, and
very kind teacher. We only have
wonderful things to say about him
and his camp. Over the years my
step-children have attended his
camp or taken after school classes.
They rave about him and his camp.
They've also developed passion for
both theater and story telling, thanks
to Mr. C, as the children call him. We
highly recommend it
.

Doug's plays are all fun,
imaginative, meaningful and
sweet. He finds a way to
include all the kids in a way
that seems to suit each one of
them, and the plays are a
delight for the kids and the
parents.

Doug's plays are truly
outstanding. He is a highly
imaginative, funny and talented
playwright and director who knows
exactly what kids enjoy. His plays
have all the qualities you would
want in a children's
production-adventure, meaning,
fantasy, a little danger and a lot of
goofy humor. Doug always
manages to find the right part for
the right kid and watching the kids
perform is a delight. It's obvious
they are having a ball!

My daughter has attended Doug's
Drama for three summers and will
be attending again this year. She
loves it and it is one of the
highlights of her year! It's
amazing the quality of the
production the kids pull off in two
weeks! The kids work hard, but
boy do they have fun!

Parent-2010-13
My 6 year old  is very shy and I was
reluctant to enroll her in Doug's
Drama. I spoke to Doug about this
and he said, "I'm good with the shy
ones". I took a chance and was
amazed how much she loved the
camp. She came home the first day
and said, "Mr.C is hilarious!". She
did a great job in the performance
and her self-confidence improved
quite a bit. We have already signed
her up for this summer and she can't
wait!
