Description:

The classic Mark Twain story jumps off of the page in this adaptation of America's favorite book. Set in 1840 Missouri, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is the irresistible tale of young Tom Sawyer and the never-ending mischief of which he so often finds himself a part; whether it's matching wits with Aunt Polly, tricking his friends into whitewashing a fence for him, or narrowly escaping the clutches of a murderous villain. Along with his best friend, Huckleberry Finn, and his love interest, Becky Thatcher, the greatest Tom Sawyer exploits are plucked from the novel and presented on the stage. Filled with foot-stomping, toe-tapping songs by Don Schlitz ("The Gambler") and with a book by Ken Ludwig, this musical adventure is a tale of thrilling escapes, comedy, and inspiration for the whole family!
