Stuart Rosh has made four albums with national distribution, one of which hit the Top 40 on the Americana Music Association chart back in the day. Stuart Rojstaczer is a geophysicist who was a National Science Foundation Young Investigator back in the day and has written a SF Chronicle and American Booksellers Association bestselling novel. Rosh and Rojstaczer are the same person. He is currently trying to get decent at bocce and his next novel will be out in 2018. 

Annette Roman is the creator/performer of 3 solo shows—Hitler’s Li’l AbominationAnimal Love, and Inauguration Vacation—performed at 15 theater festivals to date in the U.S., U.K., and Canada. She is a member of the Berkeley Monday Night Playground writer’s pool and her short plays have been performed at SF Olympians, PianoFight, and at the Playwrights Center of San Francisco’s PlayOffs. 

Tony Cyprien was born and raised in Watts, California, but now lives in Berkeley, where he discovered improv. Since stepping out on stage, he has won a MOTH Storyslam, performed at two MOTH MainStage events, and has been broadcast on National Public Radio. Tony has also performed for Marin Shakespeare's Social Justice Troupe and Marsh Theater's Monday Night Marsh. Tonight he is sharing new material. 

Theresa Donahoe is an actress who recently started performing solo pieces. Her first full length solo show "Late Bloomer" made its debut at the Rogue Fringe Festival in March 2017. "Confessions of a White Mexican" is her latest solo piece and is currently being developed into her next full length show.

Geoff Hoyle, maybe best known as Zazu in the original Broadway cast of The Lion King, has been an actor and clown (Pickle Family Circus, Cirque du Soleil) for more than 50 years, appearing nationally and internationally and in many plays and solo performances in the Bay Area at ACT, Berkeley Rep and The Marsh where he collaborated with David Ford on Geezer and Lear's Shadow.

  • Joe Cole, “The Train Outta ICU”
  • Tim Ereneta, “Tales from the Urban Campfire” 
  • Scott Ullman, "A Walk to Remember"
  • Sally Holzman, “Dunkirk Challenge”
  • Tina D'Elia,  "The Breakup. There's a Show for That?"

MUSIC: Duncan Carling , Instrumental Jazz and Blues

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

Joe Cole began his acting career in 1980, after moving to the Bay Area from his native Atlanta. Joe has performed in film and network TV and has bagged a few radio and TV commercials along the way, but theatre is his first love. He will always have a special fondness for his role as Ollie Olson in Eugene O'Neal's Four Plays Of The Sea.

Tim Ereneta does not make films, manage corporate brands, design video games, photograph weddings, parse data, write marketing copy, or investigate news stories. What he does do is tell folktales, fairy tales, and the occasional shaggy dog story to audiences. Live. Without notes. Apparently there is not a word for this.

Scott Ullman is currently an adult librarian at Berkeley Public Library, but he’s worked in libraries for over 30 years. A life-time political activist, Scott spent 13 years organizing in the nonviolent social change movement as a paid organizer. A member of Stagebridge, Mr. Ullman is doing storytelling in the Oakland Unified School district for second graders, and he’s also active with Books for Wider Horizons providing weekly book reading, storytelling, puppetry, etc. with preschoolers in Oakland.

The past of radio, books and stories offers storyteller Sally Holzman grist for stories for today. Mining her childhood, this time boarding schools, she finds little gems to share, with the hope that they brighten the listeners day,
