LANSING – Stormfield Theatre, in partnership with Walnut Hills, will present a serio-humorous lecture for the holidays entitled “Mark Twain in Person,” starring Chicago’s own Richard Henzel. This is a one-night-only event that will take place at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19 at Walnut Hills, 2874 Lake Lansing Road, in East Lansing.

Henzel’s celebrated one-man show combines material from Mark Twain’s novels, short stories, speeches, and essays – as well as improvisation – to re-create an authentic Mark Twain lecture circa 1906. As each performance is unique and customized to the composition of the evening’s audience, this benefit performance will include a reading from “Captain Stormfield’s Visit to Heaven” (from which Stormfield Theatre draws its name) as well as Mark Twain’s “Letter from Santa.”
Tickets are $20 each, and there will be a cash bar for those in attendance. Call Arts Tickets at 517-372-0945 to make your theater reservations by credit card. Only cash or checks will be accepted at the door.
But wait! There’s more! Please come early for a wonderful sit-down dinner at Walnut Hills. Seating will take place between 6 and 6:30 p.m. in The Grille. The prime rib special is $19.95, with assorted other menu entrees range from $10 to $20. The menu will also include several appetizer selections and salads ranging from $5 to $9. Seating for dinner is limited, so call Walnut Hills at 517-332-8647 without delay.
