About Me

I’m Donna Migliaccio, a Washington, DC-based actress.  I’ve appeared on stages from Broadway to the ‘burbs, with stops along the way at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Ford’s Theatre, Arena Stage, Signature Theatre, Olney Theatre, Alabama Shakespeare Festival and a host of other venues.

Primarily a musical theatre performer, I’ve been privileged to appear in a number of U.S. and world premieres, including OliveRIO: A Brazilian Twist, Kid Victory, Simply Sondheim, Beaches, Liberty Smith, The Highest Yellow, The Dinosaur Musical, The Fix and the “revisals” of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Allegro and Stephen Schwartz’ Working.  Click on Acting above to access my Resume and Production Photos.

In addition to my theatrical work, I’m a writer whose award-winning short-short story “Yaa & The Coffins” was published in The Art of Losing, a 2015 anthology published by Thinkerbeat Press.  My non-fiction work has appeared in the Journal Newspapers of Virginia and Sandwich Isles Monthly magazine as well as newsletters and promotional material for the Mutual Radio Network, the U.S. Department of Labor and Washington’s own Helen Hayes Awards.  I’m also a tireless blogger; most of my posts from my old blog, The Mig Spot, have been imported to this website.  Click on the links on the right to access those archives, or to view my most recent blog posts.

I have been hard at work on a fantasy series entitled The Gemeta Stone.  Book One, Kinglet, is complete and in the publisher submission process.   Book Two, Fiskur, is also finished and being tweaked.  Book Three, StoneKing, is in the first draft stage.  If you click on Writing above, you’ll see links to pages featuring some samples of those works and others.

    Last week I took my daughter and two granddaughters to see Little Mermaid at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. The show was AMAZING. I took my now grown children to theatre when possible when they were growing up. Now as a YaYa, I wanted to leave a lasting memory for my grannddaughters. I am not expecting to kick the bucket anytime soon, but who does? This was the first live performance my two granddaughters (ages 7 and 5) have seen. I watched their beautiful, awestruck faces more than the stage. At the end of the performance, Donna was one of the cast members to take questions. Her performance was great, but her personality and wit as she answered questions was priceless. While Hailey, the seven-year-old says her favorite part was when Eric and Ariel kissed, my daughter and I agreed that Donna’s humor after the show was tops. We were so glad we stayed for the Q and A.

      Dear Ms. Wilcoxson: Thank you so much for taking the time to write. What a wonderful gift you’re giving your granddaughters by taking them to theatre! I’m so glad they (and you) enjoyed the show and the talkback. Best wishes, Donna
