This is the third year The Three Tellers have been invited to perform for Romanza Festivale. This year’s event is entitled When Florida Was the Wild West, a time during the 1800s when cattle barons, ranchers and cracker cow hunters reigned supreme. 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. In April she will appear as Emma Edmonds who fought in the Civil War disguised as Frank Thompson and the legendary Danish author of “Out of Africa”, Isak Dinesen, for Tale Tellers of St. Augustine Theater of the Mind.
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.
