Little Yellow House Studio in Andover presents Tea & Twain starring Broadway, film and television actor Ron Crawford as the renowned American author and satirist Mark Twain.

Viewers are invited to enjoy a favorite cup of tea as Ron performs his one-man show Travels with Mark Twain based on Twain’s famous traveling lecture series, featuring readings from some of his most beloved works; including ‘Tom Sawyer,’ ‘Huck Finn’ and ‘Adam and Eve.’ The performance re-creates Twain’s lectures from 100 years ago, his adventures as a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi, his mining days out West, the Hawaiian Islands and his first tour of Europe along with his caustic, humorous observations – and a few tall stories.

Among his many roles, Crawford appeared in the original Tony Award-winning Steppenwolf production of The Grapes of Wrath as it progressed from Chicago to London to Broadway and became a television special on PBS.

Susan Haefner, Little Yellow House Studio founder, says “I’m so excited to be collaborating with Ron again, having previously presented Travels with Mark Twain in both Vermont and in NYC. Ron as Twain is simply a delight—audiences are in for quite a treat, in the comfort of their own living rooms.”

Little Yellow House Studio team member and composer/musician Lisa Brigantino will be supplying original music in the style of early 20th century music, as well as some public domain arrangements for pre/post show music for the production.

Performance dates and times are: 7 p.m. Saturday April 24 and May 1; and 4 p.m. Sunday, April 25 and May 2. Viewers are invited to a virtual tea party starting 30 minutes before each performance.  The Zoom address will be given out upon registration. See above to register.

Tea & Twain is the inaugural theater production presented by Little Yellow House Studio, launched in 2020 with a mission to educate and inspire students of the arts and grow community through performing arts.
