Nearly 60 years ago, icon Hal Holbrook walked on the stage of the Lock Haven State Teachers College in Pennsylvania for his first solo performance as Mark Twain.
Decades later Holbrook is still playing that role and his "Mark Twain Tonight" has become the longest-running one-man-show in history.
Holbrook will bring "Mark Twain Tonight" to the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m.
The Daily Courier has 14 tickets for the performance, and will give them to winners of a trivia contest. Each day, readers will be able to answer a question about Mark Twain, aka Samuel Clemens, and submit it for a chance to win tickets.
Winners will be selected in a drawing of names of people who submit correct answers. The drawing will take place the evening of Thursday, Nov. 7. Winners will be notified and will be able to pick up their tickets, two per person, at the Courier's Prescott office, 1958 Commerce Center Circle, before the close of business at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov.8. Submissions should include the person's name, phone number and address so that winners can be notified.
Here is today's trivia question: What of Mark Twain's creations excited him so much that he neglected working on everything else, including one of his famous novels?
