Delightful and interactive theatre for all ages, The Amazing Face Show features a special selection of fun and surprising StoryFaces! This innovative performance art brings stories to life on the faces of the audience. The show features exciting and scary tales from around the world and original stories to delight audience members of any age.

Christopher Agostino's StoryFaces — Tales of Transformation and Wonder combines traditional and original tales into the modern world, illustrated by his amazing face painting on the faces of audience volunteers.  Participants are brought on stage and face painted to illustrate the stories as he tells them, fully engaging the audience with a skillful spoken word performance ranging from the comic adventure of The First Time a Man Met a Crocodile to the heroic tale of Punia and the King of the Sharks and, just in time for the Halloween season, The Eye of the Demon – Ghost Stories and Gruesome Faces.

Christopher Agostino has enjoyed a 30 year adventure in theater, storytelling, face painting and body painting.  His StoryFaces storytelling shows have been presented at the Face & Body Art International Convention, The World Body painting Festival and for hundreds of audiences in schools, festivals and theaters. Christopher is the Artistic Director of Transformations Face painting, a company which has earned the preeminent position at public events in New York City, transforming thousands of people annually for the Bronx Zoo, NYC Parks Department, the NYC Housing Authority, and special events like the World Science Festival.

Dodge Foundation, the NJ State Council on the Arts, the Shubert Foundation, the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation and CSC sponsors, including Premier Sponsor Heath Village Retirement Community, Silver Sponsors Hackettstown Regional Medical Center, The Holiday Inn in Budd Lake, Fulton Bank, and Centenary Stage Company members and supporters.
