The lovable Tom Sawyer and his pals take us back to the sweet summer days when sternwheelers commanded the mighty Mississippi. A time when kids fished, teased schoolmates and stole kisses in the schoolyard. From the opening flourish of the fiddle to a closing joyous leap into the Mississippi, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a winning combination of adventure, humor and nostalgia.

“[The Adventures of Tom Sawyer] is good story-telling and it rings with authenticity, even in these more cynical, hyped-up days.” –Minneapolis Star and Tribune
