Mr. Gildings has an excellent grasp of what is expected of Twains appearance and speech pattern not to forget his way of making a story cohesive using his vast knowledge of Twain s life and stories to weave a very entertaining performance. He also was accommodating when events required alterations.
The experience was delightful. A truly talented individual who went above and beyond our expectations.
Mark Twain Entertainment’s Response:
Thank you! Again, it was indeed our pleasure and delight to bring Mark Twain to life for your wonderful community!
I thought our audience was entertained and fulfilled. More importantly, they told me this after the program, with great praise. Tom Gilding: knowledgeable down to the last detail, and an excellent actor, playing to all ages. Delightful to work with Mary Gilding, Tom's manager. She knows the ropes of managing Tom's programs, sharing information to produce a successful program from first contact through the last minute of the program. I coulnd't have found two better people to work with. Both have good heads and good hearts - a winning combination for everyone. I am certain that this was a program highlight of 2012 for our library customers.
I could not have been more satisfied. I heartily recommend Mark Twain Entertainment for a thoroughly enjoyable performance!
From the Emails to their early arrival, Mark Twain Entertainment was very professional. I wasn't sure about booking over the internet but Mary made me very comfortable from the 1st E Mail I got. The evening that "Mark" had to perform was one of the worst for weather. They arrived early and offered to start the show "early" or "late" - whatever best accomidated our needs. He was funny, interacted with our club members, and was entertaining for all ages (not often easy with a group like ours). Be confident I will recommend tham to anyone that is interested in this type of performance!
I work at a senior home, and it was very humorous, and entertaining to all. I would invite him back next year. He was great!
Very good performance. Group thought it was different and insightful. Would recommend him again!
