On Saturday, March 22nd,the International Printing Museum is presenting the premier of its new show, a two-act play celebrating the American heritage of ingenuity and the frontier spirit aptly entitled, “Thomas Edison & Mark Twain’s Spirit of America.”
Join the great American inventor Thomas Edison as he explores his myriad of inventions that changed the American landscape, some that will even catch you by surprise. Then let America’s foremost humorist Mark Twain regale you with some of his grand anecdotes, ably assisted by his frontier friends such as Calamity Jane, Louie Lamont French Fur Trapper/Trader and Teller of Tall Tales along with Allen Pinkerton of the famous Police, and Laura Ingalls, plus some fun surprises!
This production presented by the recently formed Museum Luddite Players will be in the Museum’s Heritage Theater at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm, Saturday March 22nd, and is suitable for 14 years and up. Admission is only $15 per person or $12 for Museum Members. In addition to the show, guests will be able to enjoy before the show and during intermission special tours and demonstrations of the Ernest Lindner Collection of Antique Printing Presses in the galleries, including Mark Twain’s nemesis, The Linotype Typesetting Machine of 1886.
Doors open at 1:00 pm & 6:00 pm and “trouble starts at 2:00 pm and 7:00”—as Twain would say! Get your reservations early as there is limited seating for this entertaining and fun event.
