“Mark Twain on Slavery,” a performance by actor Richard Garey scheduled for Feb. 26 at the Sandburg Auditorium in Carthage, has been postponed to 7 p.m. March 5 because of anticipated inclement weather.

Ticket-holders who would like to refund their purchase should call the Carl Sandburg College Branch Campus in Carthage at 217.357.3129 ext. 0.

Garey combines his passion as an actor, skill as a storyteller and expertise as a researcher and writer to bring the role of Mark Twain and Twain’s writings to life in observance of Black History Month. Twain tells of his experiences and characters that shaped his understanding of slavery from his days in Hannibal, Mo., to his time in Connecticut.

Garey has been acting for about 40 years and established Heritage Stage Productions in Hannibal in 2002. He writes or compiles all of his shows, taking great pride in their historical accuracy.

The program is free to Carl Sandburg College students, faculty and staff. Tickets for the public are $5 and can be purchased in advance at the Branch Campus from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by calling 217.357.3129 ext. 0. Tickets also will be available at the door. Seats for Life Patrons will need to purchase tickets and reserve their seats by 5 p.m. March 4.
