After an absence of two years, McAvoy Layne will bring Mark Twain to life for a family presentation at the new Lake of the Sky Amphitheater.

The program will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday.

This is by far one of the most popular programs presented at the amphitheater. With those great Twain stories for the children and a potpourri of history for the adults, everyone is sure to have a good time. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children.

For almost 20 years, McAvoy Layne had performed around the world preserving the wit and wisdom of “The Wild Humorist of the Pacific Slope” – Mark Twain. Layne is the author of the novel, “Ghost of Twain,” and winner of the Nevada award for excellence in school and library service. He portrays the ghost of Samuel Clemens in A&E’s biography of Mark Twain and in the Discovery Channel’s Cronkite Award-winning documentary, “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.”

This will be a great opportunity for folks to come out and see the new amphitheater at Taylor Creek while enjoying a great program.

For more information contact the Forest Service Visitor Center at Taylor Creek at (530) 543-2674.
