"It has been my pleasure to participate in more than one class taught by Cheryl Fare. She is always superbly prepared with knowledge of the subject matter, uses different elements of presentation that enhances our learning and communicates superbly with the students during class as well as follow-up. I am definitely 'on' for the next class she will be teaching."

"Readers Theater has been a valuable asset at Unity of Bon Air for more than a decade. The scripts are insightful glimpses into human nature, very engaging and entertaining, and never fail to give me the perfect springboard for communicating my message effectively. AND our congregation loves each one! Hurrah for Cheryl Fare and her outstanding creativity and presentations!"
Rev. Dr. Paul Hasselbeck
Cheryl Fare's Readers Theatre creatively brings universal teachings alive! Her scripts are humorous and often poignant driving home a central message that a simple talk cannot do. They reinforce and amplify the central message of a Sunday lesson - before, after or during.
