Randy Rutherford is a musician, humorist, writer, and an award-winning solo performer who has been performing and teaching for over 20 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has worked extensively with Goldie Award-winning playwright David Ford at The Marsh, Nina Wise and Cory Fischer at A Travelling Jewish Theater, Ruth Zaporah of Action Theater and Arina Issacson at the San Francisco Clown School.

Sandra Niman was born in East Africa to medical missionaries, and has lived in many countries and played many roles. Currently she is the director of a program serving the academic, social, physical and emotional needs of homeless middle school children in San Francisco. Sandra's story today reflects her dedication to finding common ground among people of all races and persuasions.

Gay Ducey is a nationally recognized storyteller who learned an appreciation for stories in the best way possible: from family. Descended from generations of Southern women who treasured independence and a sassy mouth, she grew up in New Orleans with its endless parade of ritual, ceremony and play. She still can't resist stepping into any parade that passes by.

     

Marijo is an actor, storyteller, writer, director, and arts educator. She trained at A.C.T; has performed in theatre, stand-up comedy and storytelling. Marijo has toured her solo works throughout the U.S.,Germany, London and Zimbabwe. Marijo is known as a Griot and Truth-Teller!

Terri Tate is a down-to-earth inspirational comedienne. Her unique brand of humor shines hilarious light into the darkest corners of the human experience. She has visited those dark places, most notably during two near-fatal bouts of disfiguring oral cancer. Terri has re-emerged, committed to illuminating the way for others as they find their way to aliveness, laughter and passion. Terri shops for healing, husbands and happiness and discovers the life-giving power of discount shopping!

Erica Lann-Clark is a former New Yorker, a storyteller, an actor, an award-winning playwright, a published poet and an alternative healer. She'd thought she'd stay in Greenwich Village forever, but then the '60's happened and Erica joined the migration of those who came west to find Paradise. She's also a Viennese Jew whose family escaped to Brooklyn's cultural hotbed where she grew up listening to the tales of a vanished world.
