Masked Marvels And Wondertales - Michael Cooper is an eye-popping visual artist and virtuoso mime whose exquisite performances have dazzled audiences for almost thirty years. His one-man extravaganza combines his breathtaking handcrafted masks, original stories of courage and wonder, outlandish stilt dancing and a physical repertoire that ranges from the madcap to the sublime. The result is a “moving sculpture.” Taking up to three hundred hours to produce a single paper or cloth mask, Michael has elevated this most ancient of theater crafts to the level of a fine art. His ability as a wordsmith enables him to reel in the most discerning of crowds with the nuance of a poet, the joy and timing of a first rate comedian and the twists and intrigue of a master storyteller. And whether he’s high kicking on giant legs, animating one of his magical creations or quite literally “leaning on air,” the unending enthusiasm of this masked marvel captivates both young and old. Sunday, April 6, 2014, 2 p.m. at the Capitol Theater. SPECIAL PRICE $12 ALL AGES. Tickets may be purchased online at redtrucktickets.com, by phone, or at our box office Mondays through Saturdays between 2 and 5 p.m.

Toying with Science is a fast-paced, varied and dynamic program. Commissioned and developed with the Museum of Science in Boston, this performance explores among other things, the scientific principles of gravity, leverage, fulcrums and simple machines. Combining circus skills, mime, original music, and audience involvement, Garry and his audience investigate basic scientific information and delve into the imaginations of scientists who explore our world. During the program, Garry brings his science toys to life with motion, music, humor and insight. He turns audience members into stars as he playfully shares the stage, juggling, balancing and welcoming them into his colorful world. He performs original up-beat songs, that explore fulcrums, levers and basic mechanics. He balances five ladders at one time on his chin as he demonstrates how to find the center of gravity! It is incredible how much action, fun and learning takes place in so little time!!! As personable as he is professional, Garry consistently dissolves the boundary between the audience and himself, so that the performance sweeps through the entire theater.
