Tom Sawyer Promises Action Packed, Homespun, Adventure

Theatre and Dance at FSU will celebrate the excitement of childhood with the greatest summer tale ever told! Directed by Mairzy Yost-Rushton, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer will take place in FSU’s Performing Arts Center February 28, March 1, 6, 7, and 8 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on March 1 at 2:00 p.m.

Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and Becky Thatcher experience the thrill of dangerous adventure, the heart flutters of first love, and the bonds of friendship as they make mischief on the town, confront a deadly outlaw, discover buried treasure, and face dilemmas of right and wrong—all along the glorious Mississippi River.

Headlined by the New York Times as “homage to childhood,” Laura Eason’s adaptation comes with the homespun character of Twain’s remarkable classic, reminding us that we don’t need electronic devices to have a ripping good time.
