Rebecca Klemm holds a PhD in statistics and has taught students, judges and juries via storytelling. The Georgetown resident is also an avid patron of the arts and works with the Helen Hayes Awards to determine annual theater award decisions. She has created Numbers Alive! to demystify numbers and math. The first result is “Cookin’Up Numbers,” which premiered at this year’s Capital Fringe Festival. The play follows cookie baker Becca, who is guided by the mathematical character Pi through Numberland. Together they discover the unique personalities of puppet numbers and learn how mathematics is the ultimate universal language. The aroma of chocolate chip cookies wafted through the auditorium and cookies awaited happy playgoers after the performances. For more on this learning tool, visit www.numbersalive.org. — Mary Bird
