Emerald Coast Theatre Company (ECTC) presents “A Mark Twain Storybook,” the second Professional Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) production of its 5th anniversary season.

A troupe of actors re-tell some of Mark Twain’s most popular stories in the quarto-centennial edition of America’s most loved traveling show. Audiences will “meet” Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, Legend of Sagenfeld, Adam and Eve and The Interviewer.

“Literature coming to life on stage, what could be more exciting, inspiration, and wonderful?” asks Emerald Coast Theatre Company Producing Artistic Director Nathanael Fisher.

“A Mark Twain Storybook” will be staged on Fridays and Saturdays at 10AM in ECTC’s performance space located upstairs at 560 Grand Boulevard in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin in Miramar Beach.

Public performances are Jan. 27 and Feb. 3 (the Jan. 26 and Feb. 2 performances are reserved for Field Trips). Tickets are $10 per person. Children ages 3 and younger are free. Proceeds benefit ECTC and its Theatre Education programs.
