Actor? Comedian? Dancer? Juggler? Combining elements of physical comedy, dialects, mime, circus skills and spontaneous audience dialogue, Robert Post is practically an entire theatre company himself.
Post will bring his "The POSTman Delivers" show to West Virginia University at Parkersburg at 8 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26, as part of the college’s Distinguished Performance Series.
Earlier this year, his show was presented by New York City’s internationally acclaimed New Victory Theater to rave reviews and sold out houses.
Specializing in rapid-fire character changes, Post delights audiences with his relaxed, improvisational performance style which breaks down the wall between performer and audience. Post has performed in almost every conceivable setting, including university theaters, concert halls, street corners, dinner theaters, factories, schools, festivals and with symphony orchestras. His PBS television special aired across the USA and Canada, winning the Central Education Network Award for Best Performance Program.
Tickets are on sale now in the college business office; any remaining tickets will be sold at the door one hour prior to the concert. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and $2 in advance for WVU Parkersburg students, faculty and staff. Rounding out the college’s 2001-2002 Distinguished Performance season will be the American Indian Dance Theatre, 7 p.m., March 10, and hammer dulcimer master Malcolm Dalglish’s "Hymnody of Earth," 8 p.m., April 6.
The Distinguished Performance Series is presented with financial assistance from the WVU at Parkersburg student activity fee and academic affairs budget and the WVU President’s Office for Social Justice.
