Spellbound as the mime quietly and expressively entered the room, children at the Chino Valley Children's Library mime performance were the quietest they've ever been at one of the library's summer reading program's presentations. Mime Nancy Lemar Roberts, a performer and teacher from Sedona, acted out scenes of playing basketball, swimming, gardening and removing a globe from a large plastic bag. With face of white make-up, Nancy's 20- minute performance was done, of course, with no words, but the children mostly figured out what she was doing, as whispers confirmed, "She's swimming."
