Actor Kurt H. Sutton brings Samuel Clemens to life in “An Evening With Mark Twain,” 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, at Valley Center Stage in North Bend.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12.50 for seniors and students.

The setting is his “parlor”—a carpet, a wing-back armchair, a lectern, a couple of instruments, and some other props—from which he recites, sings songs, passes judgment on several sacred cows, and entertains us with his quick wit, sly grin, and frequent forays into folk and “spiritual” music that Clemens loved to sing and play to entertain his friends.

Born in Mannheim, Germany, Sutton immigrated to the United States in 1950.

Valley Center Stage is located at 119 W. North Bend Way. Tickets are available at
