Floor seating for children is available on a first-come, first-serve basis when doors open.  After the show, the audience can meet the artist for photographs and autographs.

Known as the Moving Sculpture, the internationally acclaimed mime, mask maker and poet of the stage is an eye-popping visual artist whose exquisite performances have dazzled audiences for nearly 30 years.

This spectacular production is sponsored by the family of Dr. Richard L. Dangle and will be performed in the intimate setting of the Dangle Theatre.  Seating is limited for this rare blend of complex mask design, mime and storytelling, so call to get your tickets before they disappear.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $9 for seniors and military, and $5 for children.  Season subscription packages are available at a discounted price for three or more shows and special discounts are available for groups of 12 or more.
