Living History Presenter

In her living histories of Marie Curie, Mary Shelley, Eleanor Roosevelt, Irene Castle, Erma Bombeck and Clara Barton, Susan Marie melts, stretches, and reforms the boundaries between theatre, storytelling, and public speaking. These deeply researched programs are presented with no imaginary "fourth wall" between the historical figure and the audience. The audience travels back in time to hear and to speak directly to the historical personage. Furthermore, Susan Marie addresses and responds to questions from the audience as the historical character.



For over two decades Storysmith® Susan Marie Frontczak has brought literature to life, created stories from thin air, and honed personal experience into tales worth telling again and again. She plays in theatres, corporations, schools, libraries, and festivals nationwide. For a description of programs, see Repertoire For Children or For Adults. For a listing of recent clients, see her Curriculum Vitae.
