Huck and Tom and the Mighty Mississippi
Music and Lyrics by Ron Barnett
Adapted from Mark Twain by Peter Howard
Developed by Virginia Repertory Theatre

Virginia Repertory Theatre announces the company of the second production of the 2018/19 Children’s Season, Huck and Tom and the Mighty Mississippi, opening Friday, January 25, 2019, at the Children’s Theatre at Willow Lawn. Based on the classic adventure novels by Mark Twain, follow our young heroes, Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, in a footstompin’ musical adventure down the Mississippi River.

Huck and Tom spring to life, along with other familiar residents and rapscallions of Hannibal, MO (including Jim, Becky Thatcher, and Aunt Polly), as they explore the majestic river that defined their lives, tested their souls, and carried their spirits into the heart of America. The show will be the second show in the newly renovated space at Willow Lawn. Virginia Rep has added lights, new bathrooms, and fresh paint to make the theater even more family-friendly. Huck and Tom and the Mighty Mississippi will be onstage through March 3, 2019 at the Children’s Theatre at Willow Lawn, 1601 Willow Lawn Drive, Richmond, Virginia 23230.
