Samuel Langhorne Clemens – better known as Mark Twain – is the ultimate American storyteller. His words have made us think and laugh for more than a century. Alan Kitty captures Twain’s enormous spirit and wit with live shows and presentations that are suitable for Theatrical, Educational and Platform Events.

The Mark Twain Education Society evolved from Kitty's one-man theatrical performances. Twain’s inspiration and impact proved to be larger than the stage, so Kitty focused his resources into the creation of programs and presentations designed to appeal to all audiences. During Twain’s lifetime, America made great strides as a nation of innovators and builders. It might be said a parade of American Dreamers grew up in Twain's century, and he was at the head of the procession — inspired by the self-educated and the self-made. Imagine having Mark Twain inspire your next event or meeting; or kicking off a conference with a lively keynote address.

Imagine him arousing a creative spark, enthusiasm and determination among students through a dynamic classroom experience, or as an entertainment beyond the norm. Twain was an accomplished newspaper editor and author whose love of language can motivate students to read and write through dynamic classroom experiences that support existing curriculum.

Alan Kitty’s portrayal is thorough and appealing, and he works with clients to create an experience that’s right for your audience. While many actors tour the country with Twain shows, the Mark Twain Education Society has the resources and flexibility to create .

In the words of Twain himself, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” Contact the society today and get started on planning a Twain appearance for your next event!
