Synopsis
Huck and his pal Tom Sawyer just can’t stop getting into mischief. And when it turns out to be profitable, Huck’s Pa wants in on the action. So much so that he locks Huck in a shed. Managing to escape the makeshift prison, Huck decides he would be better off floating down the river away from home. Along the way, he comes across Jim, a slave escaped from Huck’s aunt’s place. Opening Huck’s mind to the reality of slavery, the journey downriver with Jim is a real education for Huck. Full of adventure, good old-fashioned fun, and some vital life lessons, this American classic is s treat to share with your family.

“Greg Banks’ innovative interpretation of this American tale creates a muscular and exciting theater experience.” Insight : Journal for Community News, Business & the Arts

“This version of the story captures Twain’s cadence and complexity, and it’s tinged with a sense of awe for the Mississippi River, a character that never says a word but still speaks volumes.” –St. Paul Pioneer Press
