Mime, Movement and Mystery at Bristol Valley Theate

The Stephen Eric Chipps Mime Theater is part of the BVT’s Fall for the Arts Theater series. Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children. This event is suitable for the entire family.

The show features a fusion of mime, masks, black-light theater and original music, composed by Mark Kmit.

Stephen Eric Chipps has performed as a physical theater artist in 40 states throughout the U.S. and in four countries. He has studied with Marcel Marceau, Stefan Niedzialkowski and the Goldston & Johnson School for Mimes. He was the founder and Artistic Director of Ground Zero Movement Theater from 1989 to 1999 and is a faculty member of The School for Mimes, held annually at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio.

Bristol Valley Theater is located at 151 South Main Street in the heart of Naples. Call (585) 374-9032 for tickets and information, or visit the web site at www.bvtnaples.org.

Dinner-theater packages, including dinner at one of five Naples restaurants plus a ticket to one fall show, are $30 per person. The theater is offering special rates for groups of 15 or more for the fall season.

Album, a one-woman show by Kay Raplenovich, will round out the Fall for the Arts theater series on October 10 and 11 at 8 p.m. (coincides with Naples Flea and Craft Festival, co-sponsored by BVT and the Naples Library).
