Dillard University is proud to present Emmy Award-winning journalist, author and motivational speaker Monica Pierre, who will showcase her one-woman theatrical production, Dream Stories, Thursday, April 12 – Sunday, April 15, 2012 , 7:30 pm, at Dillard University’s Cook Theatre.
Written and produced by Pierre, Dream Stories follows the journey of nine characters as they share their struggles, doubts, lessons learned and inspiration. Pierre's motivational characters include a young girl with a powerful dream, an aging housekeeper who embraces her true purpose, and a fun-loving 40-something woman who reaches a crossroad in her life.
As part of a special collaboration with Dillard University’s theatre department, Dream Stories’ entire production crew will consist of student directors, set designers, managers and assistants. Students will also write, produce and perform original music for Pierre’s one-woman show.
“I am honored to work with such talented young directors and crew who will help me shine on stage,” said Pierre. “I look forward to learning from them as we collaborate on Dream Stories and inspire audiences to take action on their dreams.”
A portion of the production's sponsorship dollars and ticket sales will go to support Dillard’s theatre majors through scholarships and stipends. Dream Stories marks Pierre’s second theatrical production to be staged at Cook Theatre. No Permanent Scars, based her book of the same name, debuted at Dillard University in 2004.
Pierre is host and producer of a weekly community affairs show at Entercom New Orleans' six radio stations. She is also CEO of Pierre Principle, a communications strategy company.
