September 27th, 2016


  • Sheila Stanfield, “Connective Tissue”
  • Kurt Bodden, “Craigslist Diaries”
  • Jan Goodman, “The Kiss”
  • Jill Vice, “A Fatal Step”

MUSIC: Vanessa Lowe, singer/songwriter/guitarist

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

Vanessa Lowe has released 5 CDs of original music. Aside from being a performing singer/songwriter/guitarist, Lowe is an independent radio producer and mother to Finn, her own personal tree sprite. The East Bay Express pegged Lowe’s music as “dream-pop-meets-indie-folk”, and she doesn’t object to that description. www.vanessalowe.com

Sheila Stanfield is a vocalist, voice teacher, writer and performer living the life of an intrepid optimist in the small town of Sonoma where many know her name, her singing through life, her disappointments, her hopes and her dreams coming true. She loves to explore the clarity of her voice writing and performing her one-woman shows.

Kurt Bodden's last solo show, a self-help satire called "Steve Seabrook: Better Than You" ran for six months at the Marsh. He has performed improv, standup, sketch comedy, and storytelling from the Edinburgh Fringe to the motel bars of Montana. Formerly an industrial designer, he's now branching into User Experience Design (it's a thing).

Jan M Goodman retired a year ago after 41 years of service in public education. Finally, she had time to more deeply pursue her interests in the performing arts, particularly storytelling, improvisation, and singing. The Kiss is a tale of obstacles faced on her path to love and romance during the Sixties.

Jill Vice is not only an actress, but a director and acting coach for many new and unusual solo shows (Elaine Magree's "Holding the Edge", Rebecca Fisher's "The Magnificence of the Disaster", Lisa Rothman's "Date Night at Pet Emergency" and Marga Gomez's "Pound" to name a few). Her previous one-woman show, "Tipped & Tipsy" was praised by critics and audiences for its performances at the 2013 SF Fringe Festival where it won Best of Fest. "Tipped & Tipsy" went on to have an extended run at the Marsh in San Francisco and has been touring the United States and Canada ever since. JillVice.com

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.
