Michael Cooper is a Poet of the Stage ˗˗ an eye-popping visual artist and virtuoso mime whose exquisite performances of humor and poignancy, nimble speech and eloquent gestures have dazzled audiences of all ages for almost thirty years.

Michael brings his own special world to Harris Center for the Arts in Folsom. Here dogs wear hats, wild stallions are tamed, giant noses sneeze and fish bait candy to catch children in a pond. Masked Marvels & Wondertales is an unforgettable experience for the entire family.

Combining the mythical and the autobiographical, this one-man extravaganza features his breathtaking handcrafted masks, original stories of courage and wonder, outlandish stilt dancing, and a physical repertoire that ranges from the madcap to the sublime.

In an age of specialization, Michael is a true Renaissance Man  ̶  a jack-of-all-trades, whose credits include over eight thousand shows in theaters, schools and festivals around the world.

Michael Cooper: Masked Marvels & Wondertales will be performed Saturday, January 31, 1 & 3 p.m. Tickets are priced at $11-$19.

Tickets are available online at or from the Harris Center Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 am to 6 pm Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Harris Center is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, CA, facing East Bidwell Street.
