This summer, Brian Clowdus, acclaimed director of the sold-out The Sleepy Hollow Experience, joins forces with Old Sturbridge Village to bring Mark Twain's timeless tale of Huckleberry Finn to the shores of the Quinebaug River in this epic outdoor musical production. The Tony Award-winning musical Big River will sweep audiences down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a runaway slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing 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 her trusting family. Propelled by an award-winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.Tickets can be bought at //www.bigriverosv.org/tickets.html for $35
