Meet the Sages


David Albino

David, an actor residing in Minneapolis, dedicated a significant portion of his career to the mental health industry — working primarily with youth experiencing severe emotional disturbances. David was always inspired to create a unique organization that married his two passions in order to bring about social change.

Thus, The Wildwood Theatre came to be. 


Ellen Stoehr

Ellen is beyond thrilled to be part of such a powerful and meaningful vision.

Ellen is a Minneapolis-based creative with a background in the service industry, design, and customer service. Ellen has a deep fondness for people and relationships. She relishes a space where she can be her true self. By day, Ellen is an entrepreneur, in process of growing her own creative services business.


Martha Mcdermott


Martha is very excited to embark on this journey with the Wildwood Theatre. After working across the mental health field, she is ready to take a step back and share perspectives with actors and audience members. Martha is a local musician who spends her days working with individuals who struggle with mental illness. She is ready to use her experiences and expertise to help create a space that will help break stigma and start important dialogues in the community. 


Whitney Hall

Whitney comes to the Wildwood bringing a wealth of knowledge in Accounting and Business Management. Whitney holds her Bachelors in Business Administration from the University of Nebraska- Lincoln and operates her own consulting firm.
