Meet the performers:

Donell James Foreman is thrilled to be returning to Casa Mañana this holiday season for A Motown Christmas after gracing this very stage 9 years ago in Hairspray – with his co-star Adrianna Hicks! A native New Yorker, Donell has had the honor of traveling the world performing in various productions including RagtimeMamma Mia!, and the Australian premiere of The Book of Mormon. Most recently, prior to the industry-wide shutdown, Donell was performing on Broadway in The Book of Mormon. A lover of concerts and cabaret, Donell has written and performed two one-man shows in New York City – Sign o’ The Times at The Duplex (2009) and The Dirty 30 Tour at 54 Below (2018). This summer Donell finally completed his BFA in Musical Theater from Pace University, after over a decade of stopping and starting to pursue his musical theater career. It’s never too late to dream. Don’t give up!
