Castleton Theatre presents ‘World of Wonder’

Leland Faulkner’s one man show, “World of Wonder,” will take guests around the world from the comfort of Castleton’s Theatre House for one night only. Beginning with the amazing and lost art of shadowgraphs or hand shadows, Leland conjures up an amazing menagerie of silhouettes using only his hands. Discover magic from the Far East as a Japanese magician lets folded paper butterflies fill the air with color in a beautiful homage to Old Japan.

Faulkner’s performances charm audiences of all ages with an actor’s imagination, a mime’s skill, and a conjuror’s craft, stirring the imagination with creative spirit, humor, and mystery.

Faulkner will be at the Castleton Theatre, Sunday, Dec. 8, at 4 p.m.

Tickets are $30 each for adults, or $10 for youth tickets (age 18 and under).
