Jennifer Perry has lived all her life working and creating art in East Bay. She is my employer at "Lareen Fender's Ballet School Performing Arts", where I teach. And she is my Director in the East bay Area Premiere of the East Bay Premiere of "Roald Dahl's Matilda - The Musical" at Contra Costa Musical Theatre, Where I am playing Harry Wormwood. I had a great time discussing with Jenny her background as a theatre professional in the area, balancing being an educator, business owner, and Mother, while creating resonant art for the area. We also discuss her unique approach to directing a story that is so well known to so many audiences, young and old.
