LAKE PLACIDOn Friday, Aug. 24 the Lake Placid Center for the Arts will present POST Comedy Theatre a fabulous fun-filled family event thats sure to have you laughing out loud.
Actor? Comedian? Dancer? Juggler? The charismatic and ultimately indescribable Robert Post combines elements of physical comedy, dialects, mime, circus skills, and a spontaneous dialogue with the audience to present a truly original form of entertainment. Post is practically an entire the atre company himself, specializing in rapid-fire character changes, even different roles for different body parts. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students.
Post will select from various works in his repertoire including: SPIKED!, an impossibly fast-paced work set entirely to a sound effects tape; POST Child, a duet with a puppet (created by Henson Studio art ist Matthew Brooks) that looks like a third grade version of Post; Pasquales Kitchen, a wacky TV chef whips up a culinary feast of juggling, visual gags, dialects, jokes, magic and rhythm; Beyond the Wall (A Mystery), a tour de force, six character, quick change murder mystery; Ballet 101, a hysterical parody of a ballet instructor; and Tango, a passionate dance with red long johns. All of the works are presented in a relaxed, improvisational performance style which breaks down the wall between per former and audience. Those in need of a laugh, actually a lot of laughs, should make a beeline to the box office.
Over his thirty-one year career, Post has performed for hundreds of thousands in almost every conceivable setting including university theaters, concert halls, street corners, dinner theaters, fac tories, schools, TV commercials, festivals, arenas, and with symphony orchestras. He has toured to forty-three states, and to Canada, Mexico and Japan. His PBS television special aired across the USA and Canada, winning the Central Education Network Award for Best Performance Program. Post has received numerous honors including fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Ohio Arts Council and commission grants from the New York State Council on the Arts.
In 2001, POST Comedy Theatre was presented by New Yorks internationally acclaimed New Victory Theater to rave reviews and sold out houses.
