Mimi Heft lends her melodious voice to a wide range of music, from jazz and blues to a capella and folk. Whether presenting originals or songs by others, Mimi makes each her own deeply personal and resonant story. In addition to performing with her own band, Five-Legged Mule, Mimi has shared the stage with Joshua Raoul Brody, Myles Boisen, Three Drink Circus, Miniwatt String Trio, Mark Growden, Thad Povey, Delco, and others.
When Ginger Parnes was 3 years old, her brothers sent her on stage to sing at a movie theater talent show. They wanted her to win them a bicycle…and she did! Since then, she has been singing (including 10 years with Berkeley Broadway Singers) and performing with delight when opportunity presents itself. How fortunate to be here at Tell It On Tuesday!
Jan Friedman, formerly a designer and author of a series of books on American eccentrics, embraced her retirement by joyfully exploring her own eccentric potential through improv and storytelling. Plunging into a new world of senior dating and previously repressed sexuality, she developed “The Committee” with Marsh director Charlie Varon, first performing it last year at SF’s Monday Night Marsh series.
Phyllis Dantzler is a monologuist, stand-up comedian, writer, filmmaker, artist, and slacker extraordinaire. She lived the first 30 years of her life within spitting distance of where the Civil War started. She defected from The South in 1982 when she moved to San Francisco. Phyllis currently lives in Oakland with her two dogs, cat, and five chickens.
Wayne Harris is an award winning solo performer, writer, educator, curriculum innovator, and musician. A gifted artist with wide ranging interests, he has accumulated an impressive body of work over the years that includes 5 full length plays, presentations for schools, directing and designing for pageantry groups as well as various musical projects. Wayne is also the director of The Marsh Youth Theater Program.
