A Few Words About Us

Six Feet Apart Productions was born out of the never-ending need to entertain and be entertained. Armed only with a Zoom account, a sketchy internet connection, and the combined technical knowledge of an eight-year-old, Claire Hennessy and Regina Stoops are determined to turn Shelter-in-Place into Entertainment-in-Place.

Stay Six Feet Apart as we bring the entertainment from our living rooms to yours through storytelling, poetry, comedy, music, and who knows what else. An eclectic mix of entertainment to feel connected in times of social distancing and self-isolation.

Our shows bring you a mix of stories and storytellers, from Moth GrandSlam winners to those who have never told a story on stage before. From Internationally known folk tale storytellers to authors who just had their books launched into an environment with no bookstores. Plus a StorySlam where you can vote on your favorite story and the winners go on to our Stellar StorySlam.

We also produce Comedy shows and Stories in Living Color in association with other organizations, such as the Storytelling Association of California, Better Said Than Done and Story Jam.
