The Adventures of Tom Sawyer at The Historic Masonic Theatre

 
Clifton Forge, VA (Jan. 4, 2019) - On Saturday, January 19 at 3:00 pm the Barter Theatre Players will present The Adventures of Tom Sawyer on the stage of the John E Hillert auditorium at The Historic Masonic Theatre.
Tickets range from $10 to $15 and the event is sponsored in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. 

Whether it’s fishing with Huckleberry Finn, or convincing his friends to whitewash Aunt Polly’s fence, nobody loves life more than the irascible Tom Sawyer. Then one night in a spooky graveyard, Tom and Huck stumble upon a deadly secret. Will they be able to save Muff Potter from the treacherous Injun Joe before it’s too late? Join Tom and Huck on the most exciting adventure of their life, where they learn that man’s greatest treasure is the gift of friendship.

Mark Twain wrote about Tow Sawyer three different times: the winter of 1872-73, the spring and summer of 1874 and the spring and summer of 1875. He would return it to his editor who insisted that this be a book for boys, not men. Twain complied, and after the book was published in 1876, Twain wrote The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which he felt, was for adults instead. Both books have gone on to be two of the best-loved, most read books in American Literature, and this version of the play is suitable for children and adults.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.historicmasonictheatre.com, or by calling the Theatre Box Office at 540 862 5655. Tickets may also be purchased prior to the show from the Theatre ticket booth which will open at 2:00 pm.
