SOUTH PARIS -- Celebration Barn will present "Celebration Barn Summer Finale" at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 30, and Saturday, Aug. 31. The Barn celebrates summer's end with two shows featuring new work by special guest artists Hilary Chaplain, David Gaines, Aaron Tucker, and others.
An acclaimed physical comedienne and actress, Chaplain has performed her award-winning original solo and ensemble work around the world. Hot on the heels of presenting her solo show "A Life In Her Day" at the Barn, Chaplain returns for the Summer Finale with a fresh set of performance pieces.
Also joining the Summer Finale's lineup is the renowned actor and director Gaines. A protegee of the famed Jacque Lecoq, Gaines has become an eminent physical theater performer and teacher in his own right. Gaines performs with the Big Apple Circus' Clown Care Unit in the Baltimore and D.C. areas, but is probably best known for his tour de force "7 (x1) Samurai" in which he single-handedly re- enacts the classic Kurosawa film in a show that the Washington Post calls, "riotous," "rollicking," and "acrobatic genius."
Barn audiences will recognize Tucker as one third of the comic trio featured in "The Fabulous Problemas," a show that was created and showcased at Celebration Barn Theater. Tucker has toured extensively with Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus, and in Japan with the Kinoshita Circus. He currently performs with the Big Apple Circus' Clown Care Unit in the Boston area.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $8 for students and kids. Purchase tickets in advance by calling 207-743-8452. Celebration Barn Theater is at 190 Stock Farm Road. For more information, visit www.CelebrationBarn.com.
