You Don't Need Words to Tell a Story
The Texas Mime Theatre has a tough task ahead of it: getting wiggly, squirming, sweaty kids to sit still long enough to watch You Don't Need Words to Tell a Story. Luckily for TMT, the performances are so charming and appealing, catching kids' attention is a snap. The program, performed at Miller Outdoor Theatre, entertains and (shhhh!) educates kids through pantomime. The group uses theater to teach children the basics of story structure: character, plot and setting. Members of the Texas Mime Theatre will perform several sketches, including The Library, Fishing, The Bakers and, of course, mime favorite The Invisible Wall. 11 a.m. and noon. 100 Concert Drive.
