Gdavis Productions and films is an urban theater/film company that has been touring stage plays since 1994. Gdavis Productions started off as Rhema Theatre Group Ministries in Raeford, NC when Gdavis penned his first stage production entitled "Lord Why Me"
After his first national tour and the success of "If Loving You is Wrong" that featured Freddie Jackson, the name was changed to Gdavis Productions and the slogan was established "Bringing Real Life Situation to the Stage."

Gdavis Productions partnered with Harper Collins Best Selling author Nina Fox to transform her book Marrying Up into a stage play that starred American Idol Finalist Melinda Doolittle.
The relationships that Gdavis Productions has established over the years with the National Alzheimer’s Association, US Against Alzheimer's, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, The Maya Angelou Center on Health Equity, The American Diabetes Association, the Prostate Health Education Network and AARP has created a unique partnership that focuses on raising the awareness about various diseases and care giving through award winning projects and theatrical productions.
