One Person Show Workshop with Anne Marie Scheffler

Write Your  Damn Show.

Write Your Own Big Break

WANT TO TURN YOUR LIFE INTO A ONE PERSON 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 story. Shine your light! WHAT IS YOUR SHOW?

"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"

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 and helped me come up with a script. After four classes and a reading 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!!!" - Sandra Banman
