Storytelling Co-Producers

Pleasanton’s own Regina Stoops, along with Claire Hennessy of Novato, started Six Feet Apart Productions (SFAP), an online storytelling show, at the very start of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Armed only with a Zoom account, a sketchy internet connection, and the combined technical knowledge of an eight-year-old, Claire and Regina were determined to turn Shelter-in-Place into Entertainment-in-Place. Some of Six Feet Apart’s favorite storytellers will be interviewed along with clips from performances over the past year.

Storytelling Virtual Stage

Their first show, launched on March 29, 2020, and was streamed live on YouTube. The show brings a mix of stories and storytellers, from the internationally known, to those who have never told a story on stage before. “I had no idea there was such a huge world of storytelling, the variety and the talent is amazing,” according to Regina. “The silver lining in this pandemic has been being able to work with performers whom we would never have had the opportunity, if not for the virtual stage. In an odd way, our world greatly expanded in spite of shelter in place.”

Storytelling Diversity

Throughout the year the show has strived to promote a diverse line-up of storytellers from varied backgrounds with shows highlighting June Pride and Black Lives Matter. Of the show focused on Black History Month, one audience member commented, “It was a gut-punching, powerful show last night…..painful stories that were difficult to hear and process.” Many of these shows also served as fundraisers for a variety of nonprofits.
