Dr. CNichole, was born and raised in the beautiful, gritty city of Philadelphia. As an African American woman of God who is a native Philadelphian she grew frustrated around the lack of sincere narratives told from the positive Black Communities perspective that she had come to know so well. She launched CNP to offer a solution to this problem. CNP provides an alternative portrayal of hip, pre-gentrified, urban characters to some of what's being offered in today's entertainment industry without bashing the artistic expression of others.
Below are some of the stage plays, written, directed, and produced, by CNichole. Some of which were recreated through Zoom to uplift those affected by the Covid-19 Lock Down.
SOME STAGE PRODUCTIONS

CNichole, has the ability to take classic tales and put an urban/Christian spin on them to create something familiar yet new and exciting that is both family friendly and entertaining.
A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS
Chanta' was the director of this production which was casted using youth actors ages 4-16.
IZZY WON'T SIGN
Chanta' Nichole, wrote, directed, and produced a short film that she hopes to eventually turn into a full length screenplay. This film chronicles the life of young man in turmoil, who nearly sells his soul to make it but through some divine interceptions is able to escape a destructive fate.
Chanta' Nichole took the academic doctoral work of Dr. Francesca Nuzzoles in the area of human trafficking based on the lives of women from completely different backgrounds who had been rescued and turned it into a professional script. She then had the privilege to direct three separate showings of the production in various locations.
THE DRUMMER BOY
Chanta' Nichole, adapted this production to fit a more modern take and incorporated current gospel songs to fit the production style.
THE FRUIT STAND
Chanta' Nichole, co-wrote this production with then writing partner Lashonda Green, which they adapted from a spoken word piece by the same name written by Philadelphia Fire Chief Minister Troy Gore, which gives the fictional account of a fruit vendor at calvary who witnessed the crucifixion of Christ
A CHRISTMAS CAROL URBANIZE
Chanta' Nichole, adapted the classic story of "A Christmas Carol" and added a more overtly Christian theme with a modern and urban take, which included Ebaneezer Scrooge bing a record label executive, a battle dance sequence between demons and angels over his soul, and a direct divine interaction between God and Scrooge which was the turning point for scrooge.
