Cleveland Historical Society Performance

Mark Twain has been in our consciousness for a century and a half. Alan Kitty has been impersonating him since 1979 across 22 states. His remarkable appearances have enthralled audiences around the nation.

THEATRE PRODUCTION: We have produced several variations of 45-90 minute touring entertainments that feature the humor of Mark Twain. Like everyone else in the Gig Economy, our season has been canceled with the coming of COVID-19, but we will resume production as soon as health concerns allow. In the meantime, we are planning to release some of our content as virtual presentations. Meanwhile, enjoy the trailer:

FOR SCHOOLS: We help teachers create a lesson plan designed to produce an in-depth understanding of Twain, his work and his times. Suited to  English, History, or Theatre curricula, our goal is to deliver Standards-compliant, fun and enlightening programs that stand alone or work with our lecture series.

FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS: Our performances provide a physical connection to Twain that inspires further reading of his works. The performance content changes constantly, making this ever-popular program a must-have. A Q&A follows each appearance.
