As Jacksonville State University students invest time in singing roles in “The Gondoliers” — an operetta presented by the Jacksonville Opera Theatre — and perhaps consider a career in theatre as they discover the strong competition involved in capturing roles, film actor Donald Pitts serves a living example of how perseverance in auditioning results in success. Within the last five years he has landed parts in 30 short films. At age 70, his involvement in films is still going strong.
