Description: Random Farms Workshop performers (grades 3-8) present this family musical adapted from Mark Twain's beloved novel, and specially commissioned by The Random Farms Kids' Theater. In the story, Tom meets and falls in love with Becky Thatcher. However, Becky's father, Judge Thatcher, does not approve of Becky fraternizing with a mischievous boy like Tom. Tom prevails when he secretly takes Becky's punishment for her after she spills ink on the schoolmaster's prized book of verses. Then, he returns home from a pirate adventure, unwittingly returning a stolen treasure to its rightful owner. Memorable scenes from the classic book appear in this musical: Tom incurring Aunt Polly's wrath, whitewashing the fence, pirating on Pirate Island, getting engaged to Becky Thatcher, and dedicating himself to adventures with Huck Finn. Tickets are sold at the door on the day of the performance (cash only).
