Huck Finn: A Free Performance

  • Oberlin Public Library 65 South Main Street Oberlin, OH, 44074 United States (map)

Based on the classic novel "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain, this production tells the story of two runaways - a boy and a slave -  who team-up for adventure on the mighty Mississippi! Huckleberry Finn finds freedom on the run, out-thinking colorful con-men, narrowly escaping a family feud, and even passing as a girl as he and Jim make their way down the "big river." On the journey, they learn lessons of integrity, dignity, and friendship. At turns dramatic then hilarious, two performers and one storytelling troubadour play a dozen characters in this unique adaption of the timeless tale.

Recommended for ages 8 and up. Admission is free.

Presented by Great Lakes Theater. Adapted by Eric Schmiedl. Directed by Lisa Ortenzi.
