Doc Cooper will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at at Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center, at 280 Water St., in Gardiner. Doors will open at 7 p.m.

 “It’s a labor of love,” Michael says, “that would not have been possible without my 40 year career on the stage, honing the crafts of storytelling and visual theater in front of thousands of audiences across the country and around the world. Dad as well as Mum were my best friends, and have always been my greatest inspirations in life, so in the wake of their passing it’s no surprise this has become my favorite show to perform. My goal is to do them both proud as I tell the remarkable story of lives so well spent, tenderly caring for each other and for the endless parade of family, friends and animals that passed their way.”

Tickets purchased in advance will cost $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and $5 for youth or $19 for adults, $17 for seniors and $5 for youth at the door the night of the show.

Tickets are available noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday at Johnson Hall’s Box Office.
