Performance Network Theatre presents Michael Lee and his company Opus Mime on Saturday, April 23, 2011, at 1pm. This all-ages show, part of the Children’s Theatre Network’s Saturday Series for Young Audiences, will be followed by a milk and cookies reception.
The show will feature a delightful collection of “stories” and sketches with plenty of fun costumes and music too! Most are hilarious, a few are tender and there's even a love story! Kids are invited to join in the show as they learn ways to communicate non-verbally with physical acting for a theatrical experience that is both fun and educational.
Michael Lee trained with legendary mime Marcel Marceau and is not only gifted at the type of mime you expect from a traditional mime show, but takes it further into an imaginative realm where full stories are created just through physical acting.
Founded in 1994, OPUS Mime is a professional, non-profit theatre company dedicated to creating and performing original mime theatre, as well as educating people about the unique art of mime. Under the artistic direction of Michael Lee, OPUS Mime has performed nationwide in unique works that illuminate elements of the human condition.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for those under 16. Tickets can be ordered at the Performance Network Box Office at 734-663-0681, online at www.performancenetwork.org or by coming to Performance Network Theatre (120 East Huron St., Ann Arbor, 48104) Monday-Saturday 11-6 or one hour before a performance.
