with Bright Invention?
After an awesome first year which included:
- the creation of three original forms
- 14 Elkins Park performances
- Seven Center City performances
- One of which was The Improvathon: 24 forms in 24 hours!
- Three fundraising events
- Spring and fall classes, and summer camp at the White Pines Place
- Amazing rehearsals and workshops
- Laughter and tears
we are taking a couple of months to rest and regroup! We bid a fond farewell to some ensemble members leaving us to focus on other wonderful projects: Ed Swidey, Martha Kemper, Josh Totora and Kristen Norine - we will miss you!
And we are auditioning new ensemble members - so look for some new faces in our next shows. Speaking of which, we will share a Spring 2015 performance calendar with you shortly, with the next show likely occurring mid-March.
Some other exciting initiatives we are creating this year are the "Satellite Programs", which bring Bright Invention into distinct communities off-site.
- The Senior Theater Initiative, bringing five week residencies into senior living sites
- Corporate Training and Organizational Development, using Bright Invention to effect positive change in businesses and groups.
- Real Life Israel, a new story-telling/improv mash-up bringing to life episodes of the Israeli podcast Israelstory.
- Objects of Affection, our house party form, bringing Bright Invention into your home for private parties and functions.
For information about any of the Satellite Programs please contact White Pines Founding Producer at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 215-690-5133.
Lastly, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported Waiting For Thedough, our 2014 fundraising drive. We made our goal! Thank yous were emailed and sent via postal mail recently. If you are missing an acknowledgement please let us know! We do our best to keep track of our donors. Look for our donor pages to go up on the WPP site shortly!
Here's to a great 2015!
