The classic Mark Twain story jumps off of the page in this adaptation of America's favorite book.
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is the irresistible story of a fourteen-year-old boy growing up in the heartland of America, based on the classic novel. 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.
Set in 1840 Missouri, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is the tale of young Tom Sawyer and the neverending 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 book and plopped onto the stage.
Aside from having one of the most recognizable titles from literary history, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a superb family-friendly show. The large and flexible cast size, not to mention the potential for tying its presentation into English curricula, makes it an exemplary choice for schools. This also serves as a great opportunity to showcase your male talent.
