Keith Greenfield has had the privilege to work with thousands of kids as a director, coach, mentor, and teacher. Brave Arts was founded by Keith and his wife Tina along with Jeff and Christine Serowik of Pro Ambitions summer camps eleven years ago. The Greenfields saw the opportunity for a summer program designed to teach and foster growth in the performing arts - particularly musical theatre - minus the pressure of auditions, casting, and rehearsals. Brave Arts is the chance for every kid to get their chance to shine. Confidence is built from breaking through personal barriers and supporting our peers through their challenges, as we foster support for each of them. Brave Arts is committed to "confidence...one kid at a time" through on-stage time and off-stage time dedicated to community building.
Keith is the founder and artistic director of Open Fields, a community theatre group based in Dover, MA. Keith, his wife Tina, and other community members recognized the lack of performing arts opportunities in the local area for kids and families. The first full-length production of The Wizard of Oz in 2001 featured almost 100 kids and adults from Dover, Sherborn, Medfield, Needham, Wellesley, and surrounding towns. Capturing the hearts of the community and recognition from organizations such as the Eastern Massachusetts Association of Community Theatres, Open Fields has continued to grow and thrive for 20 years. Productions include Bye Bye Birdie, Grease, Godspell, Rent, Annie, Thirteen, Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and a 2012 revival of The Wizard of Oz. Keith has been nominated by EMACT for Best Direction, Best Musical, and Open Fields has received numerous nominations for Best Child Actor. Keith, musical director Dan Snape, and Brave Arts co-lead Director Sarah Clancy have created and directed over 15 musical revues. These revues have featured musical theatre, pop, and rock songs from the ages - introducing kids to the music that came before them and bringing parents and friends down memory lane through their musical talents.
In addition, Keith has coached over 50 youth lacrosse, baseball, soccer, and hockey teams in Massachusetts. He is also the founder and director of The Dover Group, a financial services group based at the beautiful Elm Bank estate in Wellesley, MA. Keith’s additional work entrepreneurial activities include sitting on the boards of several earlier-stage companies including AZ Therapies, Phage Nova, Xylyx, Hoo.be, and NanoTomer to name a few. He was the co-founder of Iquum which was successfully sold to Roche in 2014. Responsible for building several teams, he is certain these platforms will impact countless lives across the globe while his and Tina’s efforts philanthropically will impact one kid at a time to become the best they can be
