Ray Perer, Tapdancer and Showman

Eleven years ago, in 2009, a special awards ceremony was held at the Louisiana Heart Hospital in Lacombe. It was the fourth annual St. Tammany Parish President's Art Awards. 

The St. Tammany Parish President's Commission on Cultural Affairs named Slidell area theater star Ray Perer as its "Performing Artist of the Year." In this short video, Commission vice chairman Stephen Cefalu described Perer's career, both professional and in Little Theater, in Slidell and Covington as well. Plus there's an interview with the man himself about his life and times.
