PARIS — Bill Bowers has traveled a funny, poignant path from his Montana childhood to the whirlwind of Broadway and studying with the legendary Marcel Marceau, to a career as an actor and mime. He’ll present his autobiographical one-man performance, “It Goes Without Saying,” at Celebration Barn Theater on Saturday, Aug. 15.

The show is 75 minutes of mime and storytelling blended into an autobiographical evening of hilarious and heartbreaking true stories. The show opened in New York City last season to rave reviews and was described by The New York Times as “zestful and endearing – full of life!”

As an actor and a mime, Bowers has performed throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. He has performed on some of the most prestigious stages in America, including Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, The Kennedy Center and regional theaters nationwide. He appeared on Broadway as Zazu in Disney’s “The Lion King” and as Leggett in “The Scarlet Pimpernel.”
His television credits include “Law and Order,” “One Life to Live,” “All My Children” and Disney’s “Out of the Box.” He is also featured in the film “Two Weeks Notice” with Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant.

“It Goes Without Saying” will be presented at 8 p.m. at the theater on Stock Farm Road, just off Route 117. Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and $8 for students. Due to adult themes, the show is not recommended for children. Reservations are required and may be made by calling the box office at 743-8452. For more information, visit
