Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and Becky Thatcher Return to
San Diego- San Diego Junior
Theatre brings to life Mark Twain’s classic story of life along the
Mississippi in pre-Civil War America. Twain’s intent was to entertain children
and also, to remind adults of who they once were.
Directed by Desha Crownover, The
Adventures of Tom Sawyer opens at the Casa del Prado Theatre in Balboa Park
on Friday, January 2, and runs through January 18, 2009. Performances
are at 7:00 pm on Fridays, and at 2:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. There
will be an ASL performance on Saturday, January 17. For ticket information, call
