You and Me and the Space Between local Narrator
Erika Wilhite is a voice over actor, immersive theater artist, producer, playwright, director and dramaturg. She founded Artist’s Laboratory Theatre (ALT), a community-centered, site-specific theater in Northwest Arkansas whose mission is to embolden and empower individuals as “change agents” through theater and storytelling.
“We love using a local actor to narrate the story, because we want the children to hear the story in their local dialect or accent, so it is more personal for them,” said Sam Routledge, artistic director for Terrapin Puppet Theatre Company.
