Historic artist impersonator coming to Mt. Morris


MOUNT MORRIS – Encore! Mt. Morris presents Claude Monet with historic artist impersonator Scott Shepherd at the Pinecrest Grove Theater, South McKendrie and Evergreen in Mt. Morris on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m.

There are no set ticket prices; you may make a free will donation to help support Encore! at the show.

Viewing Scott Shepherd’s portrayal of Monet, whether speaking high atop his Japanese bridge, walking amidst his paintings of water lilies, or reliving the challenges he faced by obstinately adhering to his own vision, Monet teaches us how to let our fascination and love for life prosper. In doing so, we can see our goals overwhelm the obstacles that authority or conventional thinking would otherwise put in our way. Using slides, monologue, theatrical demonstrations, and audience participatory re-enactments, this is a rare opportunity to experience his unique and engaging interpretation of one of the worldʼs greatest painters.

Shepherd amazed our audiences as Leonardo da Vinci in 2018, and as Michelangelo in 2019.

Before the show starts Encore! will announce their 2020 schedule, stay after the show for cookies and conversation with time traveler, Claude Monet.
