Classically trained, Donald has played roles from the
Duchess in 'Alice in Wonderland' to Clarence Darrow. During
his study of theater performance and design at Southern
Methodist University - Meadows School of Fine Arts, he was
cast in several supporting and leading roles in a number of
stage productions, including ‘A Man’s Man’ by Bertolt Brecht
and ‘The Royal Hunt of The Sun’ by Peter Schaefer.
Pitts first became interested in acting during his freshman
year at Bryan Adams High School in Dallas, TX and continued
his study on full scholarship at SMU. His formal studies have
included classical acting, stage and screen combat
techniques, set and costume design, pantomime, modern
dance, musical theater and improvisation. Since retiring
from the practice of law, Donald has turned his focus, once
again, to performance in the film, television, advertising
commercial, radio, music video, and voice-over genres.
More recently, Donald has worked on numerous short and
festival film productions, including Sir William Geoffrey, in
the feature film 'Project Hollywood'; Virgil in 'The Secret’s
We Keep'; Antonio in'Misfit’s Prick'; Grandpa Art in
'Sunsprite'; and The Agent in the comedy pilot 'The Runners',
in which Donald also co-produced and served as Production
Designer and Set Dresser.
All who have worked with Don will attest to his dedication to
the acting craft; his ability to breathe life into a character;
and the creative “added value” he brings to any project. He is
a people person and a gifted actor.
Donald Pitts lives in Topanga, California, and when not
working, enjoys jamming and writing music with friends,
cooking, painting and helping with animal rescue projects.
