Pamela White, Horse Cave Theatre

Pamela White

Pamela White is associate artist and development consultant for Horse Cave Theatre in Hart County. A member of the company since 1977—she starred in its very first production—Pamela served as administrative director from 1980 to 1988 and as associate director from 1988 to 1998, working in the areas of financial management, long-range planning, and development. She continues as a member of Horse Cave Theatre’s artistic team as an actor and director and is the administrator of the theatre’s Advisory Group.

Pamela is a graduate of Smith College and of the Webber-Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. In 1982, she participated in the National Endowment for the Arts’ Fellowship Program. She got her administrative training at the Yale University School of Drama’s Theatre Administration Program and served as Yale Repertory Theatre’s audience services coordinator for 1985-86. In 1989, she attended Shakespeare & Company’s Workshop for Theatre Professionals, where she assisted Artistic Director Tina Packer with Women of Will, a study of the evolution of the feminine psyche in Shakespeare’s plays. The next year, she studied training methods at Ariane Mnouchkine’s Theatre du Soleil in Paris.

At Horse Cave, Pamela directed the world premieres of Piggyback and The Dancers of Canaan, as well as productions of Death of a Salesman, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Our Town. She directed and designed the sets for The Boys Next Door and Marvin’s Room and has played roles in Bus Stop, A Lesson from Aloes, Anna Christie, Lettice & Lovage, Dancing at Lughnasa, Macbeth, The Tempest, Shadowlands, The Crucible, Wait Until Dark, A Streetcar Named Desire, As You Like It, The Turn of the Screw, Painting Churches, Tartuffe, A Doll’s House, Arcadia, And a Nightingale Sang, and others. This January, she participated in WordBRIDGE, a script development workshop. Somehow, Pamela also finds time to teach classes in voice, scene study, and Shakespeare.
