Ann Marie Pereth believes strongly in the communal power of great stories, dramatic ideas, and the sincere engagement that audiences find in challenging theatrical events. When working with children, she adeptly harnesses their innate fearlessness to create focused, concentrated narrative and theatrical wonder. Pereth stresses process over product, believing that theatrical games, dramatic movement, and vocal exhibition dramatically increase self-awareness and creativity in everyone - enthusiastic amateur and budding professional alike.
