Event Description

Reaching for the Moon!
Featuring Bob Reiser and Clare Vadeboncoeur
Spend a night with lovers and loons, leap for the impossible and touch the moon. Join Clare and Bob in an hour of stories in words and mime and celebrate your inner wild romantic. Once you feel the kiss of moon dust on your hands, you will never be the same!

Bob Reiser, teacher, author and storyteller, has tickled audiences from New York to Vancouver; his books include Carry it On and Everybody Says Freedom, both written with Pete Seeger, and David Gets his Drum, a children’s book written with jazz great, the late Panama Francis.

Clare Vadeboncoeur is a story performer and teaching artist. She is a Trinity Repertory Conservatory graduate with a Masters of Arts Degree in Theatre and Dance, a C.M.A (certified movement analyst) from the Laban Institute of Movement Studies in New York and is a RI certified teacher of theatre, dance and elementary education. She combines her talents as actor, dancer, mime & writer to create and perform unique, interactive storytelling programs.
