St. Luke's United Methodist Church to Present BIG RIVERSt. Luke's United Methodist Church to Present BIG RIVER
by BWW News Desk - Aug 12, 2016

Twain's timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing to life your favorite characters from the novel-the Widow Douglas and her stern sister, Miss Watson; the uproarious King and Duke, who may or may not be as harmless as they seem; Huck's partner in crime, Tom Sawyer, and their rowdy gang of pals; Huck's drunken father, the sinister Pap Finn; the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes and her trusting family. Propelled by an award winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana. Music by Roger Miller | Lyrics by Roger Miller | Book by William Hauptman | Directed by Steve McKinnon Adapted from the novel by Mark Twain (more...)
