Since 2003, Sheryl Faye has been inspiring both children and adults with her two one-woman historical shows. These live performances, portraying and reenacting either Helen Keller, Clara Barton, and now Eleanor Roosevelt are not only entertaining and educational, they also help audiences truly understand the profound positive impact these women have made in history.
Helen Keller-Champion of the Disabled- The program is written from Helen’s mind eye. The story is told on a taped voice over as Helen reenacts her full life from her childhood through her discovery of language when she was seven years old to the writing of her twelve books. She will show the children how she speaks and reads in Braille, and her story continues through her graduation from college. This is one of our most unique, very special programs which helps children understand and accept the different ways people do the same things and inspires them to be the best they can be with the talents they possess.
Clara Barton Civil War Nurse and Red Cross Founder- Excellent program for instilling within children the value of helping others in need. Her story also ties directly into Civil War studies, community service, and reinforces the importance of reading and getting a good education to achieve your personal goals and dreams.
Eleanor Roosevelt The First Lady of The World The longest-serving First Lady of the United States, she was the first presidential spouse to hold press conferences, write a syndicated newspaper column, and speak at a national convention. She advocated for expanded roles for women in the workplace, the civil rights of African Americans and Asian Americans, and the rights of World War II refugees. She became one of the first delegates to The United Nations. One of the top ten most admired people of the 20th century.
