"STFDS_6” Catherine Stanley & Hettie Lynne Hurtes

“STFDS_6” Catherine Stanley & Hettie Lynne Hurtes

The goal of STFDS is to highlight something or someone that makes life as an Actor, Voice Over Artist, and/or human being a little easier and alot more fun!

Many years ago (~1998) I was introduced to these two wonderfully talented and dedicated women through my good friend and fellow actor/singer Laurel Jones.  What a lucky introduction for me!

Drama West was founded in 1997 by Catherine Stanley and Hettie Lynne Hurtes.  To this day, Catherine is the Artistic Director/Producer and Hettie is Co-Producer/Casting. 

Drama West is a 'not-for-profit' gathering of Writers, Directors & Actors with a love for live performance. Drama West presents original one-act plays written by local playwrights and featuring local actors. Occasionally, audiences are treated by Special Guests performances from folks like (examples and not all inclusive –visit FB page):

Finally, the DW Program usually closes with a film screening.

Thanks to Catherine and Hettie countless Playwrights, Actors and Filmmakers have been given an LA stage and screen to showcase their talent.  It is for this reason I highlight and THANK YOU both.
