no speaky speaky = mimes!

Improv Mimes

In the most unlikely places and at the most unexpected moments delightful surprises appear.  Much to my wonderment on Saturday the still new “crepes on the square” was invaded by a mime troop. Much in opposition to popular belief, high school age young people can and do indulge in creative and interesting pursuits beyond the idiot boxes in such aboundance.  Their high top black and white converse tennies were the first thing I noticed moving past as I relished my first bite of a banana & nutella crepe.  Following those passing shoes upward I found the nearby table surrounded by six white gloved young mimes engaged in silent yet very animated conversation.  It was impossible to resist making efforts at mime chat. Hence I discovered that some of the mimes have a band–yes–a band. “Dear Lucille” –yes, named in tribute to Lucille Ball. “Dear Lucille” plays 1940s & 1950s music. They claim their music is in the vein of Elvis.  Who am I to argue with Lucy the Mime?

“Dear Lucille” features the talents of Lucy, Mikayla & Nobian. Oh and their lead singer goes by the name of Alexa Putnam.

Play with “Dear Lucille” at

Mimes: Lucy Ascentino, Mikayla Stuber, Nobian Henan, Austin Chapman, Kayleigh “Sherlock” Cox & Linnea Nierman. Heads up, Kansas City,  they plan to invade the Plaza in two weeks.

Laugh, mimes dare you!

Take note of the mime wearing the bowler, Lucy, because she intends to become as famous as Lucille Ball. Remember that you saw her here first!

    I have never been at the right place at the right time to see mimes other than on TV. Something that I would enjpy watching in reality.

      Oh Leslie, I hope some time the universe brings you and mimes together because they can be such FUN! Lucy even had a metal Three Stooges lunchbox for collecting ‘spare change’ from their audiences.

    I really enjoy reading your posts, especially this one! You are so creative, and the diversity of your subjects keeps me coming back for more!

    I love mimes. I thought the band was a mime band – ha,ha – until I followed the link.

    Cool story and well-written too. I have to admit that mimes kinda creep me out the way clowns, dolls, and ventriloquist dummies do. Now, a strawberry crepe is something that doesn’t freak me out, I want one. 😉

      Considering all your red hair–I would be seriously surprised if a strawberry scared you, Fundamental Jelly. Personally I adore the banana nutella crepes–oh yeah.

    I hadn’t pestered you in so long, I stopped by to get in a good dose. Looks like a bit of fun going on! I’m writing lots of poems this month–two a day for two separate poetry month events. Hope you’ll stop by and read when you get some time. Feel free to pester. 😉

    • April 12, 2010 at 8:35 pm

      Yousei, pester pester! Are you illustrating your poems? More cartoons/comics on the way? Hint, hint! Grins.

    This seriously ROCKS!!! How fun! I can’t help but wonder if You gleaned all this information in mime?!! If so….both them and You are UBER talented at the craft! Thanks for the great post and amazing pics! Go Lucille, Go! Cheers and Namaste. 🙂

    • April 12, 2010 at 8:37 pm

      Hey Blissbait, well we did glean much in mime. But I do confess that they wrote down their names rather than working out each name/letter. Uber talented—LOL–what a phrase. You ever mime, eh blissy one?

    Like Leslie, I have never seen a mime in person. One day 🙂

    • April 12, 2010 at 8:39 pm

      Dustus, I am so surprised at all the folks who have never seen mimes doing their thing. I hope Lucy and the crew get the idea from your comments that there are probably LOTS of folks here who haven’t seen mimes either and would probably enjoy their entertaining antics to the max!

    That’s so cool! I’ve never seen mimes, (just on TV but that doesn’t really count), but I would love to. I’ll remember Lucy 🙂

    • April 12, 2010 at 8:41 pm

      Hey Camilla–on tv is a start. Better than never at all! Hey Lucy–you paying attention? You’re on Camilla’s radar now. Expectations are rising for you to follow through on your aim to surpass Lucille Ball’s comic fame!!
