When local playwright and historian Joseph Lenz wrote "Mark Twain in Fairhaven: A Musical Tall Tale," he probably never guessed it would be 10 years before it would be performed in its namesake locality, starring Leon Charbonneau in the title role.
For three weekends in August, Firehouse Performing Arts Center will host the play, which is loosely based on Twain's visit to Fairhaven in 1895.
The show opens Aug. 1 and closes Aug. 18 at the center, 1314 Harris Ave. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m.
Tickets, $8 to $12, are available in advance at Village Books. Details: 360-671-2626.
