The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Season 11-26 January 2008
Venue Theatre 3


Mark Twain's classic story comes to exuberant life in this musical adaptation of a favourite children’s book. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is the irresistible story of a fourteen-year-old boy growing up in the heartland of America.

This musical version of Mark Twain's immortal novel is set in 1840 in St. Petersburg, Missouri, a bustling town on the banks of the Mississippi River. In the course of the story, Tom matches wits with his stern Aunt Polly, falls in love with the beautiful, feisty Becky Thatcher, and goes on the adventure of his life with Becky and that irresistible renegade, Huckleberry Finn.

Along the way we meet a terrifying villain named Injun Joe, Tom's bratty half-brother Sid, and all the other boys and girls in the village - providing one scene-stealing children's role after the other.
