Summer 2024 - Upcoming Shows

Tom Sawyer - July 19 through July 28, 2024

The classic Mark Twain story jumps off the page and comes to life in this musical adaptation of America's favorite book. THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER is the irresistible story of a young boy growing up in the heartland of America.  Set in 1840 Missouri, it is the tale of young Tom Sawyer and the never ending mischief of which he so often finds himself a part of; whether it's matching wits with Aunt Polly, tricking his friends into white-washing a fence for him, or narrowly escaping the clutches of a murderous villain. Along with best friend Huckleberry Finn and love interest Becky Thatcher, the greatest Tom Sawyer exploits are plucked from the book and plopped on the stage.

Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.
