Historian Jim Clark gives a special impersonation of Missouri native Mark Twain and will deliver “Mark Twain Programs” at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11 at Capitol City Cinema.
According to information provided by Clark, the Mark Twain Program is a tool for “motivation and unusual style of entertainment that sharpens and enhances that appreciation for this early American writer, businessman and inventor.’
A few of his most requested selections include “My Grandfather’s Old Ram,” ” Accident Insurance,” “Encounter with an Interviewer,” “An Ancestor Satan” (short stories) and “How to Be Seventy” (speeches). The local performance will feature Twain’s speech, “Letters from the Earth.”
Clark has performed this program across the globe, most recently performing an extended series of events in Sydney, Australia.
Tickets are $20 per person and may be pre-purchased at capitolcitycinema.org. All proceeds raised will benefit Capitol City Cinema, a nonprofit independent art house theater.
