A B O U T   T H E   P E R F O R M E R S

Karen Sellinger to is a local classical guitarist who loves to offer her music to add a touch of warmth and elegance to any gathering.
Albertina Padilla hails from the Central Coast of California. She loves long walks and hearing stories. Lots and lots of stories.

A newspaper ad brought Sally Holzman to the Stagebridge storytelling program. The experience of creating personal stories and the challenge of recreating the stories of others has enriched her retirement and hopefully brought joy to a wide range of listeners. 

Kiran Rana is a Sufi teacher and musician who, in the last year, has found great joy in telling stories that bring different parts of the world together.

Jeff Byers tells stories at the Asian Art Museum, on various Bay Area stages, and in classrooms, kindergarten through college. He’s appeared numerous times at Tell It On Tuesday and is happy to be back with colleagues from Stagebridge.

Linda Wright is a passionate and talented storyteller. She tells mesmerizing tales from around the world at museums, libraries, schools and daycare centers.

Harry Santi has always loved entertaining and telling stories.

A B O U T   T H E   P E R F O R M E R S

Randy Craig has been around too long and written far too many scores for theater and film, but he still does it despite better judgment. Come see the band at The Marsh Cabaret in Berkeley on Wednesday nights. Randy always finds it a pleasure to work and hang with Wayne Harris, a musician, singer, solo performer and teacher who graces the TIOT stage regularly with stories and music.

David Caggiano is a playwright and solo performer. David's plays include: "Walk Like A Man" at the Noh Space, One acts: "The Arrival," "The Tinker," and "The Prophet" at the Soma Theatre. David's solo show "Jurassic Ark" won Best of San Francisco Fringe 2012, and ran for 5 weeks at the EXIT Theater with sold out shows in Edmonton Fringe.

Eliza Gibson is a writer and solo performer based in San Francisco. 

Jeanne Haynes celebrates her 20th anniversary as a storyteller with tonight’s performance. Impassioned by a Stagebridge storytelling seminar in November 1996, she abandoned her media relations business for performance venues ranging from Children’s Fairyland to Bay Area and SF Theater Festivals, and SF Brava. A schools resident artist, she has taught some 3,500 youth.  Her adult students number 400+ thru ongoing Stagebridge classes, plus private performance coaching. jhaynestory@scglobal.net

Doug Cordell is an Emmy-nominated writer, solo performer and public radio storyteller on Snap Judgment and Marketplace
