Recent Show Feedback:
The Progressive School, New York – We were just treated to a performance on the life of Helen Keller from her own point of view, and it turned out to be much more than we anticipated. Sheryl Faye brought Helen Keller to life, eliciting gasps, tears and cheers from her rapt audience, from the youngest child to the oldest staff member. It was a very moving performance, seamlessly weaving background narration and slides with pantomime and props. Thoroughly researched and professionally delivered, we just can’t wait to have Miss Faye back to share the lives of the other women in her repertoire! I must add that I have never seen our students so completely riveted to a presenter. The time went by so quickly that I couldn’t believe when it was up, and I didn’t want it to be over. ~ Eric Jacobson, Director
Derry Village School – Sheryl has been coming here for years. Each year I am blown away at how her Helen Keller presentation captivates the entire audience! Amazing performance! ~ Sandi Ward

Douglas Elementary School – Very authentic. Kept the children captivated.Portal was appropriate to the audience level. Stellar performance! Great job responding to children’s questions. ~ Nancy Doyle
Auburn Historical Society – We had the pleasure of attending a performance in which Sheryl Faye dramatized the life of Clara Barton, founder of The American Red Cross. Her production was a masterful combination of image, action and narrative. Not only did she depict the life of Clara Barton, she made vivid the society in which that life was lived. Sheryl’s presentation focused on the social issues of 150 years ago and quickens the understanding and appreciation of how those issues were dealt with. Her historical authentic portrayal reveals Clara Barton’s inspiring humanitarianism; a life fueled by determination to alleviate suffering brought about by conflict and crisis. Sheryl is a professional. She quickly transformed the ordinary room into a convincing theater with set and sound. She is a pleasure to work with: flexible and efficient. Her interactions with our diverse group were warm and informative. She would be a boon to any classroom! ~ Anna Howe Stead, Teacher
