Based on Mark Twain’s classic 1884 novel, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” this musical is set on the pre-Civil War Mississippi River. Impetuous and freedom-loving Huck leaves his Missouri town – floating down the river in a raft -- when his
alcoholic and violent father wins custody. Along the way, Huck meets runaway slave Jim, who is searching for his wife and children up North. Soon, the two are joined by the Duke and the King, who tell Jim and Huck that they’re deposed French
royalty but actually are con men and escaped convicts. After some (mis)adventures that reunite Huck with his best friend, Tom Sawyer, Huck discovers that Jim‘s slave owner died and freed Jim in her will. Jim continues searching for his family on his own and Huck decides to move out West to escape civilizing influences.
