Mark Twain's timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the
irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at
the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious,
suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing to life your favorite characters from
the novel - The Widow Douglas and her stern sister, Miss Watson;
the uproarious King and Duke, who may or may not be as harmless as
they seem; Huck's partner in crime, Tom Sawyer, and their rowdy gang of pals;
Huck's drunken father, the sinister Pap Finn; the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes
and her trusting family.
Propelled by an award winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music,
this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.
Please be advised:
Big River contains thematic elements such as slavery, racism
and bigotry and parents should be aware and discuss these issues with young
children before bringing them to the show. Thank You.
