Would Mark Twain Rock a Selfie?

MEREDITH — What would America's beloved storyteller and satirist make of the current obsession with internet and, especially, the ubiquitous 'selfie'? Though we'll never know the answer to that, Twain can get the selfie treatment this week prior to his arrival at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse on October 4th and 5th.
The Twain who arrives at the Playhouse will take the form of actor Kurt Sutton who will be performing his show, An Evening with Mark Twain as Presented by Samuel L. Clemens. Sutton travels the country with this show, and, says the San Antionio Express, he's "an able actor, [who] has no trouble convincing us of his character's authenticity. It is a warmhearted family show that older kids and adults alike would appreciate."
The Twain who will be posing for selfies is a life-size dummy which will be installed at Innisfree Bookshop at the Mill Falls Marketplace in Meredith beginning Sunday, September 28th. Anyone who takes a selfie with Twain and posts it to The Winnipesaukee Playhouse's Facebook page or tweets it @winniplayhouse by Friday, October 3rd, will be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to Kurt Sutton's show on either Saturday, October 4th at 7:30pm or Sunday, October 5th at 2pm.
For more information about the show, visit www.winnipesaukeeplayhouse.org.
