About Donna Washington

Donna L. Washington is a professional storyteller, actress and author who has been performing for audiences of all ages since she was six years old. As a member of a large military family, she has lived all over the United States as well as in Asia and Europe. Her first experiences with storytelling came from her father. He used to share tales with the Washington children over dessert. As she grew older, Donna became more and more fascinated with the world of story.

Armed with a Bachelor’s of Science in Speech from Northwestern University, she has been loose in the world since 1989. In that time, she has written and performed four one woman shows about historical black heroines, and adapted folk tales into two full-length stage productions for Chicago’s Upstage Downstage Theatre. She has also performed with Trinity Square Theater Ensemble and the Chicago Children’s Theater Company. Donna has appeared at numerous storytelling venues, including the Illinois Storytelling Festival, the Wake County Festival, The Wild Onion Festival, and the Fox Valley Festival. Donna makes appearances in schools, libraries, young author’s conventions and literacy drives around the country.

Ms. Washington’s voice narrates a series of wordless picture books by Children’s Press and three videotapes by Warren Coleman Communications.
