The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Mark Twain’s classic story of pre-Civil War life in a Mississippi River town comes to our stage. Twain created the now-familiar characters Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn and Becky Thatcher from his own childhood friends and experiences. Twain intended the book mainly for the entertainment of children, but he also wrote it to remind adults of who they once were.

Directed by JT artistic director Desha Crownover, the first rehearsal was Wednesday, Nov 12, 2008 from 4-6pm in Room 207 of the Casa del Prado Building in Balboa Park.

Recommended for ages 8 and older, for some intense situations. ASL-Interpreted performance, 2pm Sat, Jan 17, 2009.
