Original Music Written by: Beverly Marks & Mila Johansen

Performed by local talented young thespians. This play takes place in Hannibal, Missouri, the town where Mark Twain was raised. He said that he was inspired by his own experiences and the experiences of the boys he knew.

A special twist has been added by having Samuel Clemens as a young boy present in the play for some of the scenes and then writing them down for his future readers.

This is a delightful script about the everyday life and times of people in a period that emulated the easy flow of the Mississippi River. These adventures of a young, mischievous boy remind us all of the rambunctious spirit of exploration that guided our own childhoods.

Summer in Hannibal features witty dialogues, an array of interesting characters and suspense, along with music & songs to enhance the delightful feelings that this good old-fashioned story will impart.
