Hedgelawn Summer Performance Series sponsors three incredible guest artists July 11th, 18th, and 25th as part of the Playmakers Summer Camp.
Every year part of the Playmakers Summer Camp experience includes interactive performances on 3 consecutive Friday afternoons sponsored by The Hedgelawn Foundation. Each week exciting multicultural artists introduce Playmakers to a variety of theatrical arts. Past performers have included dancers, musicians, storytellers, and puppeteers. All shows are family-friendly and open to everyone!
This year we are pleased to be hosting a hilarious mime and master of physical theatre, a hearing impaired theatre company known for their visual storytelling techniques, and a duo that creates stories in song. Here is the 2014 lineup:
Mark Jaster presents Piccolo’s Trunk
Mark’s work combines live music on unusual instruments and non-instruments, outrageous acrobatics, and hyper-advanced communication skills with honest, gentle humor and playful interaction, obliterating many a skeptic’s antipathy toward mime. The Washington Post called him “clown extraordinaire and one of the most graceful performers you will ever see on a stage.”
Quest Visual Theatre presents Road Signs
Road Signs introduces audiences to Deaf Culture through poetry, songs, mime, and A-B-C stories. Road Signs encourages audiences to participate in the performance as they learn new signs, stories, and songs.
Magpie presents Living Planet
A beautiful and moving collection of songs dealing with the need to nurture and to celebrate Mother Earth and her creatures. The songs in the show celebrate the diversity of life on Earth from whales to wolves, from magpies to macaws, from the teeming oceans to the frozen tundra, from rugged coastlines to the misty rainforests.
All of the Hedgelawn performances begin at 1 pm. Tickets are $5 and group rates are available. For more information click here.
