ActTRESSES Design & Consulting was created after years of experiencing her own hair-horror stories, in theater and on television sets-- in addition to hearing actresses of color express the need to have someone who understands and caters to their hair needs-- Nikiya became the change she wanted to see in the world.   ActTRESSES Design specializes in wig design and styling for actors of color in film, TV and theater. 

The Towne Street Theatre’s mission is to be a theatre that creates, develops and produces original work that is reflective of the Black experience and perspective for theater and film.
