Chicago Street, Elgin, Illinois. The CYT Kane County presentation is based on the Mark Twain novel.  Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn were two legendary cut-ups who knew how to have a good time along the Mississippi in the 1800’s.  Imagine them reliving some of the fun of a more innocent era as this favorite story from America’s folklore is staged.
