Mark Twain’s classic novel of Missouri boyhood comes to life in this high-spirited theatrical romp. Mischievous Tom and his pal Huck witness a murder and then embark on a string of wild escapades. Becky Thatcher, Aunt Polly, Injun Joe and the rest of the group join Tom in this timeless family tale. Laura Eason’s brand new adaptation of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, brings out the child in all of us, as we explore the thrill of mischief-making, the fickleness of first love, the cold shivers of an adventure gone wrong, and the excitement of discovering real live buried treasure. This is a story for anyone who celebrates all that is glorious about childhood.
