Auckland Theatre Company
Tom Sawyer is a force of nature with an unquenchable thirst for action and excitement. Over one summer, he dupes his playmates into whitewashing a fence, sneaks out of his Aunt Polly's house at night to visit a graveyard, steals his first kiss from the ravishing Becky Thatcher and, with his bosom buddy Huckleberry Finn, tracks the murderous Injun Joe and his stolen gold.
Mark Twain's immortal classic about growing upin a small town on the banks of the Mississippi is a joyous leap into the great river of time and memory. Conjuring all the mystery and magic of childhood, this famous coming-of-age story is full of twists and turns and adventures the whole family will treasure.
Renowned for their spectacular community shows, Mike Hudson and Margaret-Mary Hollins will bring a huge cast of professional local actors to the stage, making The Adventures of Tom Sawyer must-see school holiday entertainment.
