Kitty, Alan Mark Twain Today Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
This show is what the children make it. We offer stories from the oral tradition that made it possible for Twain to become the beloved performing artist and author; and add stories that reflect Twain’s gift of improvisation. This show was inspired by a Clemens family tradition. After dinner each night, he would tell his children impromptu stories about objects in the room. They would make suggestions at will that made the stories more to their liking. For this series of shows, a few stories are told. Then the children get to ask Twain any question they like. The answers will be in the form of a story or anecdote.
