Spank! the hilarious new musical that has been heating up box offices around the country, brings all the naughty fun of the best-selling book to life. It’s the show that has the inner goddess of audience members laughing out loud with this new imagining of the characters as they come to life with sharp-witted comedy, musical numbers, steamy and fun performances from the hunky leading man, plus lots of surprises!
Anne Marie Scheffler plays EBJ, the Spank! homage to “Fifty Shades of Grey” author, E.L. James. Scheffler has been on board from the start.
She was sought out by international director Jim Milan to help create Spank! With a clear vision from Mills Entertainment to bring a fun parody of the uber-popular book “Fifty Shades of Grey” to life, Scheffler was a perfect fit. She brainstormed and wrote in a writer’s room with the other talented writers for about a month, and then the show was born. Drawing from her skills as a comedic performer and successful playwright, Scheffler contributed the perfect point of view. As a wife and mother in real life, audiences go wild for Scheffler’s EBJ! She says she’s proud to be part of the Spank! family!
