You, too, can take the stage and sing your song. Musician and actor, Jake Perrine, offers a 10-step methodology to bringing your true self into performance-mode.

Jake Perrine is a theatre and audio artist who has created works in Massachusetts, New York City, Chicago, Seattle, and Orcas. Since relocating to Orcas Island in 2010, Jake has acted in, and directed shows at the Orcas Center including last year’s Beatles tribute, “Across the Universe,” and teaches the OI high school drama class. He has published three books through Hal Leonard publishing, and co-created an online school called Warp Academy, all focused on music production education. Jake is a co-producer of the Imagine Orcas Island music and arts festival, which is gearing up for its second event this September at Doe Bay.
