Andrew Periale is perhaps best known as co-founder of the Emmy- nominated Perry Alley Theatre.  Aside from writing plays, though, he is the founding editor of PUPPETRY INTERNATIONAL magazine, and has released a CD of original songs on the Big Round Records label.


Periale is a regular at poetry hoots and open mic nights. His frequent triumphs at Robert Burns poetry competitions has given him one of the finest collection of single malt scotches in New Hampshire.



Periale recently attended the West Chester University Poetry Conference  thanks to an entrepreneurial grant  from the  New Hampshire State Council for the Arts.
