Brief Bios:


Beth Mitchell earned her masters in education in 2014. Beth started as a youth singing in the school chorus, and, in high school, painting with classmates.  This led to her associate degree in visual arts, and then a B.A. in painting and drawing at ECSU.  Working with children and youth heightened her interest in kids’ art, puppets, and Native American stories..


Carl Peruzzotti lives in Noank, where he enjoys boating, sailing, fishing and all things nautical.


Diane Postoian has been a performer and a classroom teaching artist for 40 years. She is the former director of RI’s Looking Glass Touring theatre. In 2006, she received an Honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts from RI College.  


S. Jane (Susie) Scheyder is a mom, a children’s book author (One More Thing, and How Will You Change the World?) and a novelist (Four romantic comedies in the Clairmont Series.)  She loves storytelling of all kinds, and enjoys working part time at the Connecticut Storytelling Center, where she writes grants and promotes the wonderful tellers there. She and her husband, Paul, are newly empty nesters, so they are currently having fun redefining the nest!


The Mystic Paper Beasts Theatre Company (Dan Potter and Marya Ursin are today’s beasts):

The tales told by the Beasts are either original, or are versions of folktales and myths, expressed through humor and dance in whimsical masks which are hand made by Dan Potter, and with writing and direction by Marya Ursin.  The Beasts have performed throughout the Northeast, and as far west as New Mexico, and in Europe, in some 1000 venues.
