They have received awards and favorable mention from individuals, organizations, and the press. Their company has received numerous awards from the State of Michigan and both are the reciepents of the Community Medal of Arts Award from the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo. They founded WPI in 1991. Since launching the company, they have presented more than 1200 performances of 15 shows, created specifically for audiences, young and old. Two of their creations, a full stage production of Kentucky at Sunrise, featuring a cast of eighteen, and the story theatre production of Seven Stops to Freedom, were sponsored by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Both deal with events connected with the Underground Railroad. Among their other presentations are stories about the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., African American Folktales, and a series of videos for the National Alliance of Black School Educators. Their shows have been booked for theaters, universities, colleges, schools, churches, prisons, special events, fundraisers, conventions, and banquets. Their desire is to create an accurate and in depth view of the African American experience through the performing arts.
