STORIES:

  • Theresa Donahoe, “Confessions of a Late Bloomer”(excerpt)
  • Tim Ereneta, "You're Doing It Wrong" (excerpt)
  • Nina G, “Going Beyond Inspiration”
  • Gary Walker,  “Ain’t No Thang”

MUSIC: Bekah Barnett, A refreshing blend of jazz, folk, pop, and spiritual music

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

Bekah Barnett’s piano driven tunes and soulful voice have been compared to
Tori Amos, Natalie Merchant, Adele, and Joni Mitchell. Her songs are well crafted and emotionally engaging, with the centerpiece of pure, clear, operatically-trained vocals. “This is smart songwriting for eager ears.” Her sophomore release, RISE, was recorded at Fantasy Studios with local producer and master pianist Julie Wolf.

Theresa Donahoe is an actress who just recently started performing solo pieces. Her first short solo show “Cat Nanny 911!” was performed at All Terrain Theater’s “Women In Solodarity” showcase in April 2013 and enjoyed a sold out extended run. “Confessions of a Late Bloomer” is her most recent piece and is currently being developed into her first full length show.

Tim Ereneta does not make films, manage corporate brands, write marketing copy, design video games, photograph weddings, parse data, or investigate news stories. He does tell folktales, fairy tales, and the occasional shaggy dog story in live performances to audiences across the country. Apparently there is not a word for this.

Nina G is America’s favorite female stuttering stand up comedian (granted she is the only one). She is also a disability activist, storyteller, children's book author and educator. She brings her humor to help people confront and understand social justice issues such as disability, diversity, and equity. 

Gary Walker made his Off-Broadway debut performing his first solo show, GREEN EYES, JUST LIKE YOU AND ME in New York City at Studio Theatre on Theatre Row. The play has since been published on Indie Theatre Now, and has been performed to sold out houses in various cities across the US, including The Marsh, SF. Gary currently lives in San Francisco where he spends his time writing and working as a theatre, film and commercial actor in the bay area. www.thisisgarywalker.com
