Music & Lyrics by Roger Miller

Book by William Hauptman

Adapted from the novel by Mark Twain

Directed by Derrick Silva

The irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River.

With a jubilant score of Cajun, country, gospel and blues, Big River is a rousing, high-spirited show that sets your hands clapping, your feet stomping and your heart soaring!

Winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Score and Book, this is one the whole family will enjoy!
