The theatre is something special. Meme Simmons knows that. She was drawn to it as a child. First singing in the choir at age four then performing in high school plays for five years since she did her first musical with the high school when she was still in the eighth grade.
From high school she went straight to college in New York City. Eventually landing roles in off-broadway productions and touring companies.
Now she's back in her hometown bringing her theatrical talent to the people of Jacksonville, North Carolina. Here she has established Debbie's Angels Productions to produce shows and teach acting with the help of her relatives and friends.
In Jacksonville she has helped produce a musical at Southwest High School and directed theatre classes for the city's Parks and Recreation Department. Debbie's Angels produced a musical called Broadway After Dark last year and has plans for two more adult performances this year and one for kids.
