The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater will present "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" on July 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. both evenings. The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater is directed this summer by Chelsea and Casey Webb and involves area youth in all facets of the production.
This version of the classic story is adapted by Doug Goheen from the novel by Mark Twain. All the wit, charm, and humor of the novel is preserved in this enchanting comedy that is suitable for all ages.
The main theme of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is the joys of childhood when the world is full of wonders and children are free of the heavy responsibilities of adulthood. Mark Twain was writing about his own boyhood, growing up in the small town of Hannibal, Missouri, right on the edge of the great Mississippi River.
With its hilarious accounts of boyish pranks and its shrewd assessments of human nature, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" has captivated generations of all ages. This classic story offers a not-to-be-missed opportunity to savor a witty and action-packed account of small-town boyhood in a bygone era.
The production has 28 Newaygo County youth participating in the show. This program is funded in part by the Fremont Area Community Foundation.
Free admission with donations accepted at the door to support Dogwood programs. The production is on the Dogwood Main Stage with general admission seating.
