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 online entertainment to feel connected in times of social distancing and self-isolation.

Our online events bring you a mix of stories and storytellers, from Moth GrandSlam winners, like Nestor Gomez, to those who have never told a story on stage before. From Internationally known tellers like Bil Lepp (host of the History Channel's popular TV show "Man vs History") and award-winning folk tale storytellers (like Diane Ferlatte, Charotte Blake Alston and Odds Bodkin) to authors who just had their books launched into an environment with no bookstores. Plus an Open Mic StorySlam where you can vote on your favorite story and the winners go on to our Stellar StorySlam.

We also produce festivals, workshops, and comedy shows, plus we work closely with other organizations, such as the Storytelling Association of California (in particular Stories in Living Color), Better Said Than Done and Story Jam.

Quotes

"A fabulous show. Wonderful storytelling."
"Well curated content providing a unique program that continues to grow in popularity."
"I am really loving all these wonderful stories. Really a treat. Muchisimas gracias to everyone who is participating."
"That was a really meaningful and well put together event! From the production, MC and all the tellers - what a quality event and experience. Thank you!"
"Loved the show! Wasn't able to attend live, but watched the recording."
"Thanks so much for inviting me to hang out with such a talented group of people. I had a great time and you produced a great show."
"That event was Incredible!! What a skill storytelling is and an engaging experience for listeners to visualize the events! My older boys (9 & 11) were cuddled under a blanket, predicting what was going to happen next, gasping out loud and saying what they’d do differently than the characters! Our family plans to join again for more storytelling adventures soon!"
"It was a gut-punching, powerful show last night (Re BLM show on Feb 6, 2021). I am so glad you asked me to be "backstage," because I think it mattered to have white folks in the live audience. I was honored to bear witness to the painful stories that were difficult to hear and process. Sheila was brilliant as the emcee to carry us through with lyrics from "Lift Every Voice and Sing." Kudos to you all."
"It was a terrific show, quite an impressive group of storytellers. Claire was a fantastic host, giving equal enthusiasm for each teller, with insightful interview questions that added so much more than an intro/bio. Kudos!"
