Write Your Damn Show.
"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"
You know what your one person show is. You've got an outline, the title, the poster (even if it's just in your head). Now you just want the actual script! This workshop is designed for writing, writing, writing. Specific writing exercises will give you the key points of your show: the introduction, how to take us into your world, the forwards, the climax, the transformation, the ending and you're gold!
Not for the faint of heart! In this kickass weekend of writing, you will work hard and forge your story with love, pressure, and truth.This class is beneficial for those who have already taken the One Person Show Workshop 1, but those with outside experience or a working script can also apply to join the class.

"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
