The Auburn Public Theater entertains and educates its community with theater, music, poetry, dance, and art for all ages. In "Funny Bones," audiences explore the work and legacy of Charlie Chaplin under the droll guidance of Dan Kamin, whose extensive knowledge of the legendary comedian helped him train Robert Downey Jr. for his role in Chaplin and best the ghost of Buster Keaton in a '20s cinema quiz. Dan's own live comedy combines with Chaplin's films to create two hilarious hours of silent-film-influenced entertainment. Keyboardist Harvey Tarkmeel accompanies the silent movies, audience participation crashes the fourth wall, and genuine chairs cushion viewers as Karmin leads a whirlwind tour of the classic comic's extensive canon.
