About Professional Storyteller Pippa White
"Pippa’s performance of Women Who Changed the World was absolutely charming. Our employee resource group, Women in Leadership (WIL) had the great privilege of hosting Pippa as part of our celebration for Women’s History month. Our audience was awestruck with her unique story telling skills and her ability to engage you in a moment of history thru the characters she brings to life on the stage. Captivating, Entertaining, Enlightening, Educational, left you wanting more…..these are just a few of the comments made by those who attended Pippa's production. It was a pleasure and an honor to host such a gifted performer.

PIPPA WHITE calls her One’s Company Productions “part theatre, part storytelling, part history.” Audiences call them unique, captivating, and touching. To date 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.
Pippa has performed three times at the United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City, where she garnered a review that called her work “………..riveting, heartbreaking and suspenseful.” An audience member recently captured the gist of Pippa’s unique presentations when he said, “her performances are entertainment wrapped in history intertwined with “inspiration”.
Pippa turned to solo performing in 1994, after an extensive career in theatre and television on the West Coast, including five years hosting a daily morning television show on ABC in San Francisco. She has a BA in English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In addition to professional storytelling, she offers workshops (Mining the Gold in the History Books: Finding Great Stories in History; Speech 101: How to Improve All Speaking Skills) and residencies, and has been a teaching artist with Nebraska Arts Council since 1990. She has received several awards in recognition of her work, including two Individual Artist Fellowship awards from the Nebraska Arts Council.
