I don’t usually gush, but this was FABULOUS! For 45 minutes, Robin Pease held her audience
spellbound (students and adults alike). She skillfully created an awareness of cultural differences while augmenting the children’s awareness of the even greater degree to which we are all alike.

The story was creative and highly interactive.

It was very interesting to learn about all the different kinds of acting skills.
Kirk, a student
Your workshop with my 7th graders was not only outstanding but also memorable. After you left, our assistant principal stopped in and the kids insisted on showing him their Civil War poetry presentations. He was duly impressed.

I liked the fact that we worked together and the results were amazing.
Chandler, a student
It was an amazing experience because they got me to come out of my shell.
Faith, a student
The performance was superb. The children were engrossed from start to finish. They wanted more!

I believe the show clearly demonstrates that the "Founding Fathers" based many portions of the Constitution on their knowledge of Iroquois government, rather than on the Magna Carta, as textbooks often claim.

Learning has never been such fun and so moving.

I thought it was neat how I could be like a real actress.
Sarah, a student Cleveland Heights, OH
THE LAST FUGITIVE SLAVE performance showed the emotional distress and physical consequences of the slavery institution; Robin incorporated students into her performance, directly having them see the importance of the teaching of history and culture by means of the theatrical arts.
Thank you. I especially will be using the side-by-side comparison of the Great Law of Peace and the Constitution. And my students enjoy learning about the Native American symbolism present on U. S. currency.

She has a seemingly magical ability to reach a young audience, draw them in, and keep them engaged...from fidgety four-year olds to skeptical fourteen-year olds, and she captivated and entertained as she educated.

Robin is a unique and creative artist whose leadership has helped countless students and teachers. Her experience has been invaluable and her high expectations have helped our staff in attaining not only our artistic goals but also our academic goals.
Andrew Koonce, Principal Cleveland School of the Arts
I especially enjoyed how the whole class got to create!
