I am a theatre professional, working in many different areas of theatre. This past spring of 2012, I was named Artistic Director of Theatre du Mississippi in Winona, MN. I am also cuurrently the Production Manager for the Great River Shakespeare Festival in Winona, MN. This is both a part-time and a full-time job (full-time hours, part-time pay). I am also an Adjunct Professor of Theatre for both Winona State University and Saint Mary’s University in Winona, MN.
I am a playwright (which is probably why you’re here) and author of other types of writing as well. I greatly enjoy writing for younger audiences. I have a separate web site for my plays targeted at high school (and younger) audiences — dkmunson.com. I’ve had to list them separately so that they could be included in search sites that filter out some web sites for schools.
A member of Actor’s Equity Association, I have acted on stage, but prefer the backstage. I have stage managed on Broadway, Off-Broadway, at the Kennedy Center, the Pasadena Playhouse, and numerous theatre across the country.
When not working in theatre, I do a lot of volunteering in my local community. I am the President of the Board of Directors for a local library, and am the Chairman of a local school’s Board of Education.
Thank you for stopping in, and I hope you enjoy the reading material you find here.
