Tamara King is excited to join the CVDAA team. Throughout high school she worked with Michael on several shows and loved every minute of it. In 2009 she produced and directed her first original show called Already Gone with the help of CVDAA. Coming back to directing, after so many years is thrilling and she can’t wait to get back into it. She is most excited about writing again.

Working in CVDAA gives her the unique opportunity to write the plays she directs. Though more recently her writing has been prose, writing has always been a passion of hers, so any opportunity to brush up that skill is one she will readily take. Currently, she is also working at Atria Senior Living in Walnut Creek as an Engage Life Program Instructor. She wants to continue school and get her degree in Human Services. Tamara loves working with people and creating something as a team; CVDAA has provided for her the perfect place to harness both of those skills.  

CVDAA exists to encourage artistic theatrical expression by young people. With that in mind, we have sponsored many student directed and produced pieces. We . . .
