Anamarie is Rachel's mom. She is also a Professor of Theatre at California State University Northridge. She earned her B.A.E in Theatre/English, Secondary Education and an M.F.A in Child Drama from Arizona State University. She is dedicated to directing productions and teaching courses that allow diverse voices to be heard. Anamarie chooses to consistently involve the university community and the larger community in the process of production. Her holistic approach to performance study, which involves active research on the part of student actors, connections to the larger community, work with playwrights and authors, and public forums for the discussion of the work add important dimensions to the student's experience.Anamarie worked closely with director and actor Tony Plana on the development of Beyond Borders, an after-school educational outreach program. She has served as a teacher/leader for the California Arts Project, a state organization dedicated to providing uality arts experience for teachers through the strategy of teachers teaching teachers. Anamarie leads diversity workshops and institutes that explore what diversity means in the arts. Just prior to joining the CSUN theatre faculty, Anamarie recorded several Hispanic folk tales for Children's Press. Ten stories were placed on cassette and entitled Our Multiethnic Heritage: Hispanic Folktales. Three of the stories have been placed on individual cassettes and each accompanies a fully illustrated book: the titles are The Tiger and the Rabbit, The Coyote Rings the Wrong Bell, and The Girl from the Sky. She works regularly as a story teller and performed her first one-woman show last Spring.
