Based on the novel by: Mark Twain
Book: Ken Ludwig
Music and Lyrics: Don Schlitz

Based on the classic story by Mark Twain, this Broadway musical adaptation brings one of America’s most beloved literary characters to exuberant life on the stage. The whole family will enjoy seeing Tom and his friend Huck Finn and girlfriend Becky Thatcher, set out on their many escapades.

Whether it is Tom tricking his friends into whitewashing a fence, the whole trio getting lost in McDougal’s cave or all of the town’s children taking on the schoolmaster Lemuel Dobbins, there is rollicking fun throughout with toe-tapping songs and foot-stomping dances. Set in the town of St. Petersburg, Missouri in 1840, this musical serves up a big slice of Americana, like apple pie and lemonade on a Sunday afternoon in summertime.

You will see Tom cross swords with all of his foes, from his stern Aunt Polly and his bratty half-brother Sid to the righteous Reverend Sprague and the evil Injun Joe. All of your favorite characters will be there, singing bright and bouncy songs by Don Schiltz. This hilarious adaptation of Twain’s book was written by Ken Ludwig who wrote the Broadway comedies Lend Me a Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo as well as the musical Crazy For You. You won’t want to miss this adventurous musical ride down the muddy Mississippi River.
