White Pines Access
performance creativity delivered to your location!
Today, White Pines Productions announces a new chapter: the launch of White Pines Access!
Using applied improvisation and building long-term relationships, White Pines Access provides a suite of programs delivered at host venues and all based on the following features:
- In-depth work by White Pines’ skilled actors, teaching artists and facilitators.
- Individually tailored programs, designed with host/partner organizations, to specifically address the needs and desires of that organization.
- Creative content based on theatrical improvisation, promoting spontaneity, confidence, teamwork and creative problem-solving.
- Radical inclusion, making no distinctions or assumptions about any individual’s ability to participate creatively.
White Pines Access programs include:
Creative Corporate Training. Team-building, collaboration and communication
for companies and organizations.
School Residencies. Dynamic in-school performing arts, animation and
creativity programs for any age group.
Stepping Out! Creative programs for adults with disabilities: acting, improv,
and original devised theater productions.
The Senior Theater Initiative. Residencies in low-income senior centers,
creating theater from the lives and memories of senior citizens.
Private Parties and Galas. Improv shows, Living Clue and custom-designed entertainment
for your party, gala or event.
“White Pines is based on the skills of our resident ensemble, the improv group called Bright Invention,” explains Executive Director Benjamin Lloyd. “As improvisers, we are trained to create theater magic for anyone, anywhere, with no material support required except a place to perform, teach, or facilitate!”
White Pines Access provided support for the Leading for Change Fellowship at the LeBow School of Business at Drexel University. Marybeth Gonzales runs the fellowship and says “White Pines succeeded in building connections between our Fellows through their dynamic team building exercises in fun, insightful ways. Not only were they creative with their games, but also flexible, allowing Fellows to proactively join in and play lead roles. This improved the bonding experience and added to the overall success of the entire experience. White Pines took our vision and tailored it in a creative way that enabled the cohort to think of leadership in new ways. It was a great experience!”
Grace-Ann Alfiero is a nonprofit consultant and CEO of Arts in Action LLC. She has been assisting with the development of our programs to serve people with disabilities. “I love working with and being around the actors who make up Bright Invention - the actors involved in the Stepping Out program. It's really lovely to see the professionalism and the spirit of community that exists when meaningful collaboration takes place here! There is a special sort of magic that happens within White Pines' programs and I feel forever lucky to have been inspired by it and a witness to it.”
Donna Boyer is the Director of Community Services at Federation Housing, Inc., White Pines’ primary partner for The Senior Theater Initiative. "The Residents of Federation Housing have been so thrilled to have been a part of White Pines' Senior Theater Initiative. They found it to be very interactive and they enjoyed sharing their stories with each other. White Pines and their staff have been wonderful to work with and we look forward to future opportunities to work together."
“As event planners for large nonprofit events, we always look for ways to make our programs engaging, entertaining but also educational,” says Sheri Resnik, creative consultant for Denenberg Communications. “White Pines nailed all three objectives with their talent, spirit and attention to detail at our gala for Philly Friendship Circle. Our audience LOVED them, and so did we!”
“White Pines’ mission is to transform people’s live through performance creativity,” says Lloyd, “White Pines Access is our way of delivering that mission affordably, flexibly and dynamically to multiple partners through multiple programs.”
