The POSTman Delivers

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 theatre company himself, specializing in rapid-fire character changes, even different roles for different body parts!

 

On Tuesday, November 18, the historic Thrasher Opera House in beautiful downtown Green Lake will present The POSTman Delivers at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets for this off-the-wall, ingenious, laugh-out-loud evening of entertainment, which is generously sponsored by Green Lake State Bank and Heidel House, are $18 Adults, $12 Seniors and Students.

 

Are you are a fan of any of the following: Peter Sellers, Steve Martin, Julia Child, Les Ballet Trocadero, Dame Edna, Dick Van Dyke, “Leave it to Beaver,” Marcel Marceau, Steve Allen, Lucille Ball, or Robin Williams?  If you said yes to two or more names in this list then I predict that you will have a fun evening in the company of Robert Post in his one-man-show, The POSTman Delivers.” Dance Insider, NY, NY.

 

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 artist Matthew Brooks) that looks like a third grade version of Post; Pasquale’s 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 performer and audience.  Those in need of a laugh, actually a lot of laughs, should make a beeline to this performance!  Mark it on your calendar as the night Walt Disney enters the twilight zone.

 

Over his twenty-five year career, Post has performed for hundreds of thousands in almost every conceivable setting including university theaters, concert halls, street corners, dinner theaters, factories, schools, TV commercials, festivals, and with symphony orchestras.  He has toured to forty-five 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.

 

And now, for a performance suitable for audiences from age 10 to 80+, Robert Post will appear on the stage at Thrasher Opera House in The POSTman Delivers.  Tickets available at: Thrasher Office, Knowledge Emporium, Green Lake State Bank, Ripon Drug, and Bull Moose Mercantile or by calling 920-294-4279.  For on-line tickets, visit www.thrasheroperahouse.com.
