Water from the Welles
SERVING UP A STEW OF ORIGINAL
STORIES, MONOLOGUES, POETRY & SONGS
Water from the Welles is the entertaining, inspirational, humorous and dramatic show filled with monologues, stories, poetry and song that includes “a little bit of this and a little bit of that.”
In Water from the Welles, Elizabeth steps out between the pieces to speak with the audience about the river of inspiration behind the selections.
While Water from the Welles is generally for adults, the show can be edited for a teenage audience, and material selection is always designed with your audience in mind.

“Beautiful poem, you are an Inspiration! I felt “set- free,” clear and creative the next morning after your Awesome show!”

In her one woman show Elizabeth demonstrates a unique capacity to change characters as effortlessly as changing clothes. Each character she portrays has its unique energy as well as expression and voice. Humor and pathos mingle and ebb and flow throughout the performance. Spellbinding!

“I have seen Elizabeth Welles perform monologues and selections from her one-woman show. She is personable, energetic, interesting and entertaining. I highly recommend her for an evening’s entertainment!”

William Blake sums it all up for creativity, “To see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower… hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour…” When you see Elizabeth Welles perform, this is what you get. For creativity is what she knows in her soul. In a highly creative, fun, and inspiring way, she tells it like it is, saying what we all want to say, but are too afraid to say. Her stories span from the uproariously funny to the deeply poignant and sad, but always delivering us to the heart of what matters, while enticing our senses, making us think and want to care. Life, itself, inspires this creative artist. And an evening spent watching her will, in turn, inspire you. It did me, and I continue to be inspired.
