the Tony-Award winning musical
BIG RIVER by Rogert Williams and Roger Hauptman.
Directed by Jenny Martin
Music Direction Roberta Whiteside
Mark Twain's timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing to life your favorite characters from the novel-the Widow Douglas and her stern sister, Miss Watson; the uproarious King and Duke, who may or may not be as harmless as they seem; Huck's partner in crime, Tom Sawyer, and their rowdy gang of pals; Huck's drunken father, the sinister Pap Finn; the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes and her trusting family. Propelled by an award winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.
The cast calls for 20-25 men and women aged 16 and up. The production features roles for African-Americans. (Actors under the age of 16 should contact the theatre before attending an audition.) No previous performance experience is necessary and anyone attending the auditions will be considered.
