This summer, step into the world of Mark Twain's beloved character, Tom Sawyer, with Locally Grown Theatre production of “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” by Cathrine Bush. From fishing with Huckleberry Finn and convincing his friends to whitewash Aunt Polly’s fence, to falling in love with Becky Thatcher, Tom Sawyer’s zest for life is contagious. However, one night changes everything when Tom and his best friend Huck stumble upon a deadly secret.

Join us as Tom and Huck embark on the greatest adventure of their lives, discovering that the true treasure of life isn’t gold but the gift of friendship. This heartwarming and thrilling performance will captivate audiences of all ages.
