Amye was very professional and her show was highly entertaining.
I perform stand up comedy, emcee, and custom write shows for almost any venue. One of my repeat clients is the MS society of Minnesota and another is the HOPE coalition of Red Wing Minnesota.
"Amye was hilarious! My sides hurt for two days after she emceed our event two years ago. She really interacts with the audience and gets them involved. Our event would have been a flop without her – that's why we've asked her back every year since!"
My motivational speaker is "Rosie the Riveter!" I come in full costume, play period music, and I've had great feedback. My very first show had a standing ovation! Please find the description of the show below. :-)
Rosie the Riveter
Rosie the Riveter, the iconic "We Can Do it" image of WWII is as relevent for the men and women of today as she was 60 years ago. Amye Scharlau, a performer for more than 20 years, plays Rosie in this one women show that's much more than just a motivational speech, it's a witty celebration of the courage of "ordinary" people.
This fun and inspiring tale is spun by Rosie the Riveter herself as she describes the women of the 1940's reinventing themselves to save a nation. Rising to the occasion, the "Rosie's" of WWII challenged their roles and definitions of themselves. They overcame fear, self doubt, and a confusing new world to build confidence, relationships, and changed the way the world perceived women. Their stories are touching, humorous, and filled with courage.
Sound familiar? The men and women of today have many of the same challenges in an increasingly complicated world. What does it mean to be a success? Where do relationships and children fit in?
Courage is timeless and many of the lessons learned from our "Greatest Generation" can help us today and in our future. Learning to value and apply the unique skills of each individual leads to creative solutions for the whole community. This program is heart felt discussion of the accomplishments of ordinary people who acknowledged a challenge, rejected a stereotype, and changed the world. After all, there's a little "Rosie" in all of us.
The last "Rosie" show I performed took a survey after the show. 100% of the audience said I knew my subject and over 97% said it "was worth my time."
"Very enjoyable and learned a lot along the way. She is gifted"
"Amye was very interesting-I learned a lot about Rosie that I didn't know."
"Great history and was motivating and inspiring."
