Franchisor Profile

Founder and director of Marrzipan Drama, Davina Marr had been performing since childhood when she launched the business in 2010. With a dual degree in Drama and Marketing, she was working as a drama teacher when she saw a gap in the market for a method of teaching drama the way she wished to be taught as a kid. Seeing how other schools were teaching, and remembering her own experiences, Davina knew there was a better way to nurture young performers. She was determined to create a space where students could learn not only the basics of performance, but also how to lean into their uniqueness and become their most confident, creative, and capable selves. The result was Marrzipan Drama, and it had already grown a thriving client base by the time she moved to New Zealand in 2012. Now, with over a decade of experience, and a strong presence in regions across the country, Davina is excited for the future and the Franchise Partners that will help her bring self-confidence to students everywhere.
