‘Mark Twain’ one-man show in Seaford Monday
The Seaford Community Concert will present its fourth concert on Monday, April 7, at 8 p.m., at the Seaford High School auditorium.
“Mark Twain and the Laughing River” is a one-man show conceived, written and performed by Jim Post, a veteran folk singer and songwriter from Galena, Ill. He requires nothing but a match to light his cigar to look the part. His physical similarity to Samuel Clemens is uncanny.
This delightful family-oriented entertainment, is a natural; impersonating Twain in late middle age, Jim Post matches the great-writer’s anecdotes about growing up in Missouri with original songs extolling the mystique of the Mississippi.
Did you know that Mark Twain sang with a beautiful tenor voice and played banjo, piano, and guitar, and loved to show off at parties? This discovery gave Post the footing for his own unique interpretation of a musical Twain.
Post composed 12 songs, based on true-life stories of Twain’s childhood and wove them into a unique musical presentation of Twain’s humor, from dialogue to song, from stories to historical fact, and from laughter to nostalgia.
