Welcome home Mary Katherine Nail …

Posted on: August 8th, 2013

Mary Katherine Nail spent the month of July in New York City at the New York Film Academy’s Musical Theater Intensive for High School Students. Mary Katherine received a scholarship from NYFA at Summer 2012 AMTC’s  Shine Event. 

During the 4-week workshop, Mary Katherine and the other students developed skills needed for success in musical theater, including dance, voice, acting and performance. Many of her instructors were past or present Broadway actors.

One of the best things about the program for Mary Katherine was meeting so many teenagers from all over the world. Over half of the 40 students in the musical theater program were from other countries. She will never forget the month she spent in NYC. Mary Katherine said she is extremely grateful to The Donna Groff Agency and AMTC for getting her prepared and giving her this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

“…. We know The Donna Groff Agency (DGA) will always have our best interests at heart. We know that we can count on good, solid advise and encouragement.   Miss Donna gives 110% to whatever she does and that shows in the Models/Talent she represents.

There are many companies that are less than reputable, or that are “scams” if you will;  but DGA is definitely NOT one of those. We know that without the Lord and DGA, we would not be where we are now.”

Thank you very much for all you do,

Bill, Jaime & Baileigh West
