This year's Mingle with Kringle Show
Featuring Nationally Known Clown Doug Berkey
"Doug's performance provided much more than hysterical laughter and good entertainment...it awakened imagination, inspired creativity, instilled appreciation for theatre arts and increased our knowledge of a shared cultural history...WOW!"
For nearly 3 decades, Doug Berky has brought classic solo physical-theatre performances to stages all over the world, transcending age, race and culture. Using the illusion of the mime, the antics of the clown, the transformation of his own handmade, original and exquisite masks, the suspense of a good story and the excitement of improvisation, Doug inspires laughter...and reflection. A graduate of Dell'Arte School of Physical Theatre in CA, Berky has performed and taught as Artist-in-Residence at the Commedia School in Denmark, Roanoke College, Furman University, and the University of Wisconsin among others. He toured with The Two Penny Circus and The Montanaro Mime Theatre where he appeared in the award-winning NBC children's series, "See Saw," and in television specials for Swedish National TV. In the early 1990s, Doug created a video series, "Jesus Stories" and "Light in the Darkness," with Ecufilm and he has been a featured performer at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Cabaret Symposium and at the 50-year celebration of the CROP Walk for the National Council of Churches. Doug has given literally thousands of performances at performing arts centers, arts festivals, schools, libraries and museums.
