Huck and Tom

Theatreworks Jax


This musical introduces the audience to Mark Twain’s two most beloved books through highlighted scenes to encourage further reading of these American literary classics. Tom Sawyer uses psychology to get others to paint his fence, shows off in Sunday school to get “engaged” to Becky, and meets his best friend Huck in the graveyard to cure warts. Huckleberry Finn finds freedom on the mighty Mississippi with the runaway slave Jim, decides it is more important to follow his conscience than the law and enlists Tom to help Jim escape. Join Huckleberry, Tom, Jim, Becky Thatcher, Aunt Polly, and all the residents and rapscallions of Hannibal, MO as they explore the majestic river that defined their lives, tested their souls, and carried their spirit into the heart of America.
