BIG RIVER: THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN

July 06 - July 21, 2018

Mark Twain’s timeless tale is an All-American musical!

Description

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 bluegrass-inspired theatrical celebration of pure Americana. Directed by Jerry Elison.  Music Direction by J. Arden Hopkin. Choreography by Kristen Bradley and Jasmine Petrell.

ASL NIGHT! The show will be interpreted in American Sign Language on Thursday, July 19. If you need this service, email info@scera.org to make advance ticket and seating arrangements.
