fter creating a Black History Month Variety Show, Darrin was asked to create a follow-up show for Easter. Little did he know, this would be the launching point for a magnificent career. It was during this time that Darrin became the Director of Performing Arts at High Calling Ministries, and the first production of The Prophecy was born.
ince 2015, Stage Left successfully created 4 original shows with sold out venues. It has been recognized and awarded by Vital Magazine for its achievements in the entertainment space.

tage Left is a rapidly growing
entertainment company that focuses on faith-based productions,
finding local talent, and uplifting the community. The company was
founded in 2015 by Darrin Hawkins and Michael Wood, but really
found its humble beginnings in 2008.
In addition to outside productions, Darrin was responsible for producing two major ministry productions per year. Some of the most notable productions were Joseph: The Story of Brokenness, The Misfortunes of Wilbur Frost, and Esther The Queen of Persia.
rom an early age, Darrin found a natural enjoyment and ability to craft alluring tales with a deeper meaning. However, he always felt the desire to challenge limits and express his talents fully without restraint. The inception of Stage Left Entertainment marked the realization of this dream- one he shares with all of his aspiring artists. Stage Left’s mission is to give artists a platform to express their God-given talents as they see fit and to impact the world around them.

That means more to me than anything else, changing lives and helping someone become a better them. That's why our moto is ( We entertain while making a difference ) If we don't make a difference, then we failed!”
