THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER
Mark Twain’s classic tale comes to exuberant musical life in this adaptation of one of America’s favorite books. “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” is the irresistible story of a young boy growing up in the heartland of America. Set in 1840 in St. Petersburg, Missouri Twain’s novel brings to life this bustling town on the banks of the Mississippi River. The child in all of us never tires of reliving Tom’s antics with his stern Aunt Polly, the beautiful and feisty Becky Thatcher and that rascally renegade, Huckleberry Finn. From one heart stopping adventure to another, this rollicking musical is a story of schemes, dreams, strength, hope, overcoming obstacles, and most of all, friendship.
