Do the thing you fear most and the death of fear is certain.
- Mark Twain on Common Sense

Ken Richters as Mark Twain has retired!

MARK TWAIN ON TOUR starring KEN RICHTERS celebrated its 35-year anniversary tour during the 2019-2020 Season! Funny, thought-provoking, and occasionally politically incorrect, the show was based on the life and works of the great American author — and staged as a PUBLIC LECTURE BY MARK TWAIN.

The production was a fully structured and scripted, with the opportunity for the veteran actor to ad-lib on local current events throughout. Before each show, Ken Richters scoured the region's newspapers looking for what he calls, “grist for Mark Twain's mill.” The result was a unique and memorable evening at the theater. Local issues and politicians were always the target of Twain's caustic wit - and those dignitaries brave enough to be in the audience were most certainly the subject of a comment or two.
