Recent show feedback:
Thank you so much the children loved it as well and I had many students ask to read her books.” ~ Charlotte Avenue School
K-8th Grade“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/Progressive School of Long Island
