April 19 – May 7, 2023
Based on the classic novel by Mark Twain, playwright and former Artistic Director of Lookingglass Theatre Company (Chicago), Laura Eason adapts the greatest summer adventure ever told into an imaginative and highly theatrical play. Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and Becky Thatcher experience the thrill of mischief-making, the fickleness of first love, the cold shivers that linger after an adventure gone very wrong and the unbridled joy at discovering real buried treasure. For anyone who remembers the innocence of being a kid, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer celebrates all that is grand and glorious about childhood.
