One Person Show Workshop with Anne Marie Scheffler

Write Your  Damn Show.

Write Your Own Big Break


 "Don't wait by the phone, call yourself." -Nia Vardalos

Nia Vardalos wrote a one woman show called My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which became the hit movie of the same name. No one told her to write a one person show. She just did it. She wanted to tell her story. She wanted to express herself. Do you have a story to tell? Do you want to express yourself? Do you want to get on stage? With a great story that only you can tell? PERFORM IN THE BEST ROLE- THE ONE YOU WROTE FOR YOU! 

"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"

"Anne Marie Scheffler is a true find for anyone looking to honestly and wholeheartedly create a piece of artistic expression. For years I secretly dreamed of creating a one person show but never thought it would come to fruition until I heard about Anne Marie’s workshop. She was able to tease out the potential of my writing and helped me come up with a script. I feel that I too can be out in the world sharing the stories that are meaningful to me and entertaining to those who get to see them performed! 
 Thanks Anne Marie!!!" - S.B.

More About Anne Marie


"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
