Spend an evening with a legend. Oscar-nominated actor, and CMA alum, Hal Holbrook has brought the unique humor and wit of American icon Mark Twain to the stage for sixty consecutive years. Seeing Holbrook in Mark Twain Tonight! is more than watching a master craftsman at the top of his art. The actor has lived in the role of Twain so long, honed it to such a fine edge, and worn it so often like a second skin that the act is practically organic. Holbrook understands Twain, and through Holbrook, one of the unique minds of any age continues to flourish. A living, breathing masterpiece, Hal Holbrook’s Mark Twain Tonight! is, quite simply, the most acclaimed and enduring performance in the history of American theatre.

For more than a decade the Cordis Quartet has been redefining chamber music by fusing an original combination of custom-made and traditional ethnic instruments to create their unique sound. The ensemble is built upon cello, concert cimbalom piano, and percussion … however, one-of-a-kind creations such as electric mbiras, melodica, and the world’s longest playing cylinder-driven music box also have a magical way of weaving themselves into each performance. Cordis “makes a strong case for both sides of its musical personality – expanding the boundaries of chamber music.” – Time Out New York

Based on one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written) The Improvised Shakespeare Co. creates a fully improvised Shakespearean masterpiece right before your very eyes! Each of the players has brushed up on his “thee’s” and “thou’s” to bring you an evening of off-the-cuff comedy using the language and themes of William Shakespeare. Nothing has been planned out, rehearsed, or written. All of the dialogue is said for the first time, the characters are created as you watch, and if every you're wondering where the story is going...so are they! The night could reveal a tragedy, comedy, or history. Each play is completely improvised, so each play is entirely new!

Opens one hour before each performance
PATRONS WITH PHYSICAL CHALLENGES: Wheelchair locations are available on the orchestra level. Parking spaces for patrons with disabilities are located closest to the Auditorium. Please notify the Box Office early to accommodate seating availability.
CHILDREN: A ticket is required for everyone entering the theatre, including infants and young children. We love kids, but infants and young children can be disruptive to a performance. As a courtesy to audience members and performers, please use discretion in choosing to bring your child. Should a child become disruptive you may be asked to wait in the lobby. We do not recommend that children under the age of 5 attend non-family events or under the age of 3 for family events.
ARRIVAL TIME and LATE SEATING: Out of courtesy for all patrons, we highly suggest arriving early to events in order to avoid being seated late. The doors of Eppley Auditorium generally open at least one hour before the event and individual venues generally open 30 minutes prior to the start of a performance.
To be seated per your ticket, you must arrive on time. Once a venue closes for a performance to begin, no latecomers will be admitted until an appropriate break occurs, as designed by the artist/performer. Late seating entry varies with each performance and may be significant-or even impossible. If you are seated late, you will be directed to an easily accessible seat in the rear of the venue until intermission. At intermission, you will be allowed to move to your original, ticketed seat.
CAMERAS, CELL PHONES and PAGERS: We love technology at Eppley Auditorium, but not during a performance or film. Cameras and recording equipment are not permitted in any of the venues during a performance or film. All cell phones, pagers, and other electronic devices must be turned off before the start of the performance.
This includes use of smartphones or similar: iPhones, Android phones, Blackberries, iPod Touches, iPads, etc.
As a courtesy to others and the performers, please do not open cell phones or engage in text messaging during a performance.
For urgent messages, leave the box office number and your seat location with your office, staff, or babysitter.
CURTAIN CALL: For the safety of audience members and yourself, we request that patrons remain in their seats, or standing ovation, at the conclusion of each performance until house lights are brought up. The performers would love your applause!
PARKING: Free parking is available adjacent to the performance space as well as on campus.
SMOKING: Eppley Auditorium is a smoke free facility as well as the entire campus of Culver Academies.
IN CASE OF FIRE: In the unlikely event of a fire, please locate the nearest exit. Follow the instructions of the Campus Security, and the House Manager, and WALK to that exit.
