Family-friendly ‘FROGZ’ show coming to WCU on Feb. 11

Feb 05, 2014

CULLOWHEE — Western Carolina University will present Imago Theater’s “FROGZ,” a family-friendly show that combines Cirque du Soleil-style acrobatics with outlandish masks, mime and music, on Tuesday, Feb. 11.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center, and tickets are $5 for students and children, and $10 for all others.

With larger-than-life animals taking on human characteristics, “FROGZ” was designed to create a comedic and mind-bending carnival of the absurd that entertains people of all ages.

Working out of a large 18,000-square-foot-theatre laboratory in Portland, Ore., Imago’s ensemble of actors, dancers, designers, fabricators and musicians become alchemists seeking fresh perspectives of performance. The group has developed a distinctly theatrical approach – one that’s equal parts dance, design, circus, music, text and illusion.

The company has been honored for mask theatre pieces that have appealed to a wide age range and for innovative works that push the boundaries of form, design and story.

The show is recommended for ages 3 and older. Tickets can be purchased at the Bardo Arts Center box office, online at bardoartscenter.wcu.edu or by phone at 828-227-2479.

The show is part of WCU’s Arts and Cultural Events Series. For more information about the series, visit ace.wcu.edu.
