Write Your Damn Show.
"Don't wait by the phone, call yourself." -Nia Vardalos
Nia wrote a one woman show called My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which became the hit movie of the same name. We want to laugh and cry and feel. We want someone to get emotional. And then in their emotional performance, we live that emotion. Tell your story. The funny moment, the angry moment, the embarrassing moment, the deeply in love moment. Put it on stage. Let us hear your voice. Shine your light. WHAT'S YOUR STORY? WHAT'S YOUR SHOW?
"I have studied solo-performance with 3 big name coaches. Anne Marie
Scheffler is by far the best. She's brilliant. -- Bob Rodriguez, Los Angeles, Actor/Writer/Improvisor
"Anne Marie pays incredibly close attention to each person and creates a supportive, safe, and fun place for everyone to take risks and play. I’m in awe of her presence, generosity, and creativity, meeting every person where they are and encouraging them the expand themselves.

"When I first saw Anne Marie’s One Person Show Workshop, it was like looking at a harmless little switch on the wall. “Hmm, what’s the worst that could happen if I flipped this switch…?” Ten billion volts of creativity later, there was no worst, only best. I now have the bones of a one-woman show that will make delicious, comical sense of this writer’s life—and be fun along the way. Anne Marie has a way of seeing right through our fake and filtered pleasant selves to THE STORY!!! She did this for me, who thought there was no story. I watched her do the same for everyone else in the room and learned through the watching, too. Anne Marie, you are Magic. Truly.”- Elaine Stirling, Author
"Time in your workshop changed my life! I feel like the words "thank you" will never be enough, but know that my heart could burst." - Cristina Calamita-Orlando, "Cristina, No H"
"So I know I told you my last show did great. I did it tonight in Philly which no joke I was having crippling fear about. But it destroyed. I was so so happy. Thank you so much for your guidance. I told people that you recognized why I thought I was funny in the first place. And after this show they were asking about your workshop. I hope they decide to take it. I'm excited to bring the show on the road. Thanks again."-- PATRIC CIERVO
