Picnic Theater Returns!
Far As the Eye Can See
Actress Pippa White of One’s Company will present “Far As the Eye Can See” just steps away from the 9-acre restored Iowa prairie at the Wallace Farm on Sunday, September 17 at 5 pm. This one-act performance focuses on “the prairie and its people: the early pioneers who crossed it, the later pioneers who settled it, the brave people of the Dust Bowl, and the Native American people who struggled to keep the prairie that once belonged only to them.”
Pippa calls her productions “part theater, part storytelling, part history.” She has crisscrossed the country many times as a professional storyteller, touring to over 30 states, performing at universities and colleges, conferences, performing arts centers, museums, libraries, and festivals. One audience member said, “Her performances are entertainment wrapped in history intertwined with inspiration”. Pippa turned to solo performing after an extensive career in theater and television on the West Coast, including five years hosting a daily morning TV show in San Francisco. She has received several awards in recognition of her work, including two Individual Artist Fellowship awards from the Nebraska Arts Council.
