‘Huck & Tom’ here Tuesday

The Struthers Library Theatre and the Defrees Family Memorial Fund presents Huck and Tom and the Mighty Mississippi at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 23. The show is based on the book by Peter Howard, with music and lyrics by Ron Barnett.

The greatest young adventurers in American literature spring to life in this foot-stompin’ musical based on the novels of Mark Twain. 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. The 1998 premiere production of Huck and Tom earned more standing ovations than any of our other shows, and so this feel-good hit is back by popular demand for another jubilant year.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Children age 5 and younger are free.
