Mark Twain's timeless classic book HUCKLEBERRY FINN sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck helps his friend Jim, a runaway slave, escape to freedom.  Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, featuring a motley crew of unforgettable characters ranging from the virtuous to the villainous.  The story of their journey downstream is an American classic that captures the rhythms, sounds and spirit of life on the Big River.  Propelled by the Tony award-winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana and will leave you humming tunes such as “River in the Rain,” “Worlds Apart,” and the rousing anthem “Free at Last.”

Run time: 2 hours, with one intermission.
