Directed by Matthew Lindsay and performed by the Summer Spectacular Camp Junior Ensemble cast, ages 7-12.
The lovable Tom Sawyer and his pals take us back to the sweet summer days when sternwheelers commanded the mighty Mississippi. A time when kids fished, teased schoolmates and stole kisses in the schoolyard. From the opening flourish of the fiddle to a closing joyous leap into the Mississippi, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a winning combination of adventure, humor and nostalgia.
Produced by special arrangement with Plays for Young Audiences.
