About this show

Mark 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. Big River is a rousing, high spirited musical adaptation of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and brings 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 their trusting family. Propelled by an award winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, the jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.
