TheatreWorks, the nationally acclaimed theatre of Silicon Valley, presents a family treat for the holidays, the Tony Award-winning musical BIG RIVER directed by Robert Kelley. Hilarious and heartwarming, Mark Twain's story The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn comes alive in this musical adaptation.
In this joyously tuneful journey, runaways Huck and Jim sweep down the mighty Mississippi, discovering a friendship that defies convention and defines the American dream.
Propelled by an infectious, award-winning score by Country Music Hall of Fame’s Roger Miller (“King of the Road”), and a wondrous script that won William Hauptman a Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical, this uproarious tale chronicles the best and worst of our heritage in a joyous and unforgettable journey.
