The play was outstanding. I was pleasantly surprised and moved. I found myself in tears and soul touched with the slave songs. Incredible voices and acting. I highly recommend this play to parents of high schoolers since they read Huck Finn. My teens were visually enlightened to the America's crime of slavery. It will stay with them throughout their lives. Thank you.

Join Huck and Jim on the Mississippi River in the 1840s, where Huck, escaping from his drunken father, meets up with Jim, a runaway slave. The story of their journey downstream is an American classic that captures the idyllic pleasures and unacknowledged injustices of life on the big river with humor, song, and spirit. Roger Miller, best known for his ‘60s country-pop hits (“King of the Road”), deftly fuses his effortlessly charming, blue grass tinged sensibility with Twain’s timeless story. *_
