Partner Organizations

Promoting Community Health and Wellbeing Through the Performing Arts in SWFL for All Ages

At The Naples Players we partner with over 30 organizations in Collier County and throughout the United States bringing performing arts to the community through our wellness and outreach programs. These partnerships allow us to make theatre more accessible and achieve our mission and vision of building community through exceptional access to the power of theatre and  shifting the national perception of how theatres impact their community.

Each of these organizations work at the sector level with individuals facing various structural and individual challenges such as homelessness, disability, cognitive impairment, grief/loss, poverty and low-income families, anxiety, and depression. We use theatre to address these challenges through collaborative, one-of-a-kind programming tailored to the needs of each student and organization with a healing centered approach.

I had the benefit of your improv workshops you brought to the David Lawrence Centers. I feel changed by this experience. The improv exercises helped me to go around my social anxiety tendencies and interpersonal self-consciousness and engage with others without anxiety and fear of judgement. Your model of Offer, Aware, Accept, and Add helps me enjoy my personal interactions instead of merely tolerating or surviving my personal interactions.
