Megan Wells, MFA, has won three national awards as a solo artist, storyteller and theater director.  She has been touring her original performances for thirty years — one woman shows and story programs from world myth, folktale, literature, history and personal experience, as well as deeply researched historical impersonations.  Megan is beloved for her unique ability to combine the intimacy of oral narrative with the emotional dynamics of theater.  Her most popular programs include:  Bram Stoker’s Dracula, L. Frank Baum’s Wizard of Oz, Scheherazade, Ray Bradbury’s works, the Trojan War and historical enactments of composer’s wives and lovers.  Whether she is performing on stage at National Festivals or telling folktales to children at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Megan’s charisma and warmth creates an unforgettable experience of story.  She is a beloved coach and is currently keen to help performers thrive creatively in the “holodeck” of their Zoom Rooms.
