“Marianni is the ideal coach for young actors. I have seen her stage and direct remarkable shows ranging from "Les Miserables" through "Kiss Me Kate" and "Millie," to "Streetcar Named Desire" and "Twelfth Night." The shows come alive under her direction and she draws compelling and mature performances from very young actors. I cannot recommend Marianni's work highly enough. Her direction and coaching have helped Seattle area students enroll in the finest drama programs in the country, including Miami, Michigan and NYU.” – Jim H.
“CORE was the best decision I've ever made. The lessons I've learned through this program are invaluable. CORE is where you can truly be yourself. “– Maryam A.
“Marianni is one of the most loving, caring people in the world, and simply a joy to work with. You learn so much about life in general, that your acting becomes so much more than acting. Marianni shows you the heart of theatre, and hands it to you. I love working with her, and I know that I have been forever changed for the better both in my theatre career and in life because I knew and worked with her.”- Ira M
“Core theatrics is a wonderful program. I have had the honor of being in several of Marianni's plays throughout the years, and she is a honest, caring director. She doesn’t let you play it safe, but lets you try new things and take a risk, while learning and growing in a safe environment.”- K.N.
“Amazing drama company! So much heart and soul behind their productions.”- Jordan B
Because the director uses the play to teach about life issues, and relates to all the participants, star or bit player, equally. For our child, who has been involved in a number of theaters, it turned out to be the best experience she has had.- Ronald J.
“The results that CORE Theatrics gets out of their actors is amazing. Productions are beyond fantastic.” -Deb S.
“All their plays have been wonderful and really know how to touch a person's heart.” -Jacob H.
“Core theatrics not only brings a very high standard to all they do, they open the hearts of the actors, and the audience as well. Every performance is something to look forward to and schedule around! I'd rather see a CORE performance than most professional shows because every actor gives 150% every performance.” -Sulfiati M.
“CORE Theatrics takes the real lives of real young people and melds them with dramatic lives on stage with phenomenal impact, for both audience and actor.”- Ellen B.
“It delivers lively and entertaining productions. Very enjoyable to watch (and participate in)!” – Ann M
