Primo storyteller to perform at Barn

PARIS — On Saturday, Aug.  15, at 8 p.m.,  Celebration Barn Theater will present Bill Bowers for an evening of beautifully crafted and engaging storytelling and that the New York Times described as, “Zestful and endearing … Full of life.”

Compared to the work of David Sedaris, Claudia Shear and Augustin Burroughs, “It Goes Without Saying” is a uniquely crafted autobiographical performance in which Bowers shares funny, heartbreaking, and unbelievable true stories from his career as an actor and mime, and his life-long exploration of the role silence plays in all our lives.

“It Goes Without Saying” takes you on a scenic tour of Bowers’s life thus far; from his childhood in the wilds of Montana, to jobs as a performer across the country, to the whirlwind of Broadway and studying with the legendary Marcel Marceau.

Tickets are  $14 for adults, $12 for seniors (60-plus), and $8 for kids (17 and under). All tickets are general admission. Purchasing tickets in advance is strongly recommended.

To purchase tickets andFMI, visit or call the Barn’s box office at (207) 743-8452. Celebration Barn Theater is located just off Route 117 at 190 Stock Farm Road in South Paris.
