‘Masked Messenger’ offers artistic insights to Ponte Vedra schools


Ponte Vedra public school students had an opportunity to learn more about theatrical expression last week, when the “Masked Messenger” visited local schools.

Sponsored by the Ponte Vedra Public Education Foundation, the “Masked Messenger” performed a series of vignettes ranging from comic to bizarre to poignant. Using a collection of masks created by Rob Faust, performers demonstrated how to use body language, psychological insight and humor to captivate audiences.

As masks were removed from the wall, performers assumed the emotional state expressed by that mask, creating a variety of unique characters to emerge.
