This is the sixth year The Three Tellers have been invited to perform for Romanza Festivale. St. Augustine has always had more than its share of characters, crooks, and scalawags. This year’s event, entitled St. Augustine’s Visitors and Victims, is guaranteed to be both informative and fun! Members of The Three Tellers are Margaret Kaler, Jane Sims and Wayne Sims.
Ms. Kaler tells stories about local and national history, including Women’s Work in WWII and Harriet Tubman, Union Spy. She also portrays Mary Harkness Flagler and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings for Road Scholars. Other portrayals include Harriet Beecher Stowe, Esther Hill Hawks, Susan B. Anthony and Mother Jones.
The Storytelling Sims are humorists, historians and tandem tellers. They tell stories of Florida, the South and Appalachia. The duo has spent 24 years sharing tales and legends at the renowned Florida Folk Festival in White Springs and 15 years stepping aboard St. Johns Riverkeeper Eco-Heritage boat cruises of the St. Johns River as naturalist William Bertram and author Constance Fenimore Woolson, America’s First Travel Writers. The Sims were featured recently in St. Johns READS library programs presenting St. Johns Cattle Barons, Ranchers, & Cow Hunters.
