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.
British-born Claire Hennessy is a storyteller, podcaster (The Bonkers Brit) and author. She performs funny, true and often embarrassing stories about her husband and kids around the San Francisco Bay Area. She has been published in numerous award-winning anthologies and is hoping to find an agent for her humorous memoir before she is too old to go on a book tour.
Comedian, award-winning storyteller and writer Regina Stoops has lived a life filled with so many causes she has run out of room on her car's bumper. With thought-provoking honesty and humor, Regina entertains with tales about the hurdles, detours and lessons learned along life's path. Regina is a stay-at-home mom, special needs parent and MS Warrior currently sheltering in place in the Bay Area with her wife and three kids.
