A visual artist and expert mime, Cooper uses an array of beautifully crafted masks to create a world where wild stallions are tamed, graceful giants dance and fish use candy to catch children in a pond. The stories told in “Masked Marvels and Wondertales” are filled with thrilling adventure, silly antics and outlandish possibilities that are sure to capture hearts and stimulate imaginations.
In the event that tickets remain for these performances, Leach Theatre will also offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club.” The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold one hour before each event for $10 each.
