ELIZABETHTOWN — Kentucky Country Music Association Comedian of the Year and Elizabethtown resident Jim Roberts will bring his one-man theatrical presentation, “Mark Twain: Steamboats and Anecdotes,” to Elizabethtown Community and Technical College at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
“Jim Roberts is a long-time friend and supporter of Elizabethtown Community and Technical College,” said ECTC President/CEO Dr. Thelma White. “We are delighted that he is bringing his Mark Twain presentation to the college, and we invite members of the local community to join us for an evening of quality entertainment.”
Roberts has spent two years researching and adapting Twain’s work for his one-man show.
“I use a mixture of quotes, anecdotes and biographical sketches to give the audience a feel for Twain, the author and the man,” he said. “Then I add my own interpretations of how he might react to present day sights and events.”
Roberts is comfortable on the stage, having spent the past 25 years as a comedy entertainer. A retired small business owner, he is a civic leader who has chaired the Elizabethtown Community College Board of Directors, the Elizabethtown/Hardin County Chamber of Commerce and the local Junior Achievement Board of Directors, among others.
All proceeds from the performance in ECTC’s Science Building Auditorium will help fund scholarships for ECTC students. The presentation is sponsored by the ECTC Student Government Association.
General admission tickets are $15 and $10 for ECTC students, faculty and staff. They can be purchased from any SGA member or at the ECTC business office, located in Room 107 of the Occupational and Technical Building. Reservations may be made by calling (270) 706-8531.
