Huck Finn This Weekend
Huck Finn flees the claws of "civilization" for the freedom of the mighty Mississippi, only to find himself running from mobs, getting shot at, stealing gold, digging escape tunnels and dressing as a woman. And perhaps his greatest adventure: unexpectedly finding his own moral compass in a world of corruption and hypocrisy. This highly-theatrical adaptation presented by the Junior Repertory Company and directed by Lorra Webb, is the second of Coble’s work produced at the Playhouse, following 2006’s Gold in the Bones. This classic tale of adventure is great for families and students of all ages.
The production runs Thursday thru Saturday, November 29, 30 and December 1 All performances begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 for Adults and $8 for Students/Seniors. Anyone bringing a canned food item for Amazing Grace Food Pantry will receive a $2 discount on their ticket. Tickets are available online at www.oddfellows.org or by calling 860-347-6143.
