ArtsFarmington Presents: Antonio Rocha – Award-Winning Storyteller
April 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$18 – $39
ArtsFarmington is pleased to present Antonio Rocha’s world of sound effects, compelling characters, physical comedy and one of a kind storytelling on April 14th at 7pm at the Emery Community Arts Center in Farmington.
Antonio will take you on a unique journey of the imagination with stories from around the world that not only entertain, but also leave your hearts filled with delight, and your minds aware of the beautiful world we live in.
“Most importantly … is his acute awareness of the audience with whom he is working. His stories shift and change to meet them halfway, whoever they are, whatever age they are, whatever mood they bring in the door. He is a master.”
– Mark Lutwak former Educational Director of Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park
