Tom Sawyer returns to Shreveport via Peter Pan Players; show opens May 29 for 8 performances at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse

Mark Twain's classic story comes to musical life, says Peter Pan Players director Trey Jackson, in this Broadway adaptation of America's favorite book.

Set in 1840's St. Petersburg, Mo., Tom Sawyer matches wits with his stern Aunt Polly and bratty half-brother Sid, falls in love with the feisty Becky Thatcher and goes on the adventure of a lifetime with Becky and that irresistible renegade, Huckleberry Finn, while trying to fend off the villainous Injun Joe.

Filled with foot-stomping, toe-tapping songs by Don Schlitz ("The Gambler"), and a warm, funny book by Ken Ludwig ("Lend Me A Tenor"), The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer is a tale of thrilling escapes, comedy and inspiration for the whole family.
