One Person Show Workshop
with Anne Marie Scheffler
"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? With a great story that only you can tell?
PERFORM IN THE BEST ROLE- THE ONE YOU WROTE FOR YOU!

"What can I say, we laughed, we cried and we wrote! What more could a person want out of a workshop?! Anne Marie's teaching style is inviting, inspiring and totally natural. None of us ever wanted to leave because her writing exercises combined with the creative energy flow of the group were exhilarating and intoxicating. Anne Marie generously guides her students to places they never knew they could go and lends an extra hand only when necessary. Thank you Anne Marie, you are a gift to those of us who need some extra help to get our ideas on paper before we explode!"

"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.
"Anne Marie is a great teacher and person. She creates a safe place for you to create and generate ideas that are stuck up in your head by going through specific writing exercises. She’s very honest and encouraging especially when you step outside your creative comfort zone. She has so much experience as she’s a writer and performer in her own right. She speaks from truth and shares with you some of the things that have helped her on her creative journey.
I’ve worked with Anne Marie for just over a year and each session is better than the last one. She has helped shape a show for myself that is challenging and fun. But more importantly it's a show that I always to write but I needed Anne Marie to pull the idea out of my head and onto the page. She’s a great person, teacher and ally. I can’t recommend working with Anne Marie enough.” - John Meehan, The Unsuspecting Sexiest Male (One Man Comedy Show)
"I have had the privilege of working with Anne Marie on my one person show. Anne Marie guides with knowledge, experience, joy and generosity. It's better than therapy! Anne Marie makes the journey as enjoyable as getting to the final destination. You will love her classes!!!" - Bethelene Hart
"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
