Matthew Sweatt portrays writer Mark Twain in a "Wax Museum" event Friday Veterans Elementary School in Gloucester. The entire fifth grade class participated in the program, which was visited by parents and students from other grades. The fifth-graders dressed as famous historical figures and stood still, like wax statues, until a visitor pushed a button. They would then spring into life and recite a first-person account of the famous person's life.
