‘Tom Sawyer’ adventures set to music at DMTC

From page A9 | March 05, 2014 |

The Davis Musical Theatre Company announces the opening of “Tom Sawyer,” bringing to life author Mark Twain’s classic story of a young boy growing up in America’s heartland in the mid-1800s.
“Tom Sawyer” opens Saturday, March 8, and runs through March 30, with 2:15 p.m. shows on Saturdays, March 8, 15, 22 and 29; a 7:15 p.m. show Friday, March 28; and a 2:15 p.m. show Sunday, March 29. All performances are at the Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive in East Davis.
The show is directed and choreographed by Jan Isaacson, with musical direction by Utsav Bhargava, and features Jonathan Kalinen (Tom Sawyer), Maris Samsel (Becky Thatcher), Ty Soderquist (Huckleberry Finn), Bethany Huff (Aunt Polly), Jenna Karoly (Li’l Joe Harper), Matthew Bishop (Injun Joe) and Lily Fletcher (Judge Thatcher).

In this musical adaptation, as in the original book, young Tom Sawyer is forever getting into mischief; and drawing his friends, including best friend Huckleberry Finn and love interest Becky Thatcher, along with him.

Through all his exploits — from matching wits with his Aunt Polly, to tricking his friends into whitewashing a fence for him, to narrowly escaping the clutches of a murderous villain — Tom somehow always manages to come out unscathed. Whether they’re familiar with the book or not, audiences are sure to experience a superb family-friendly show.

Tickets are $8 plus a $2 facility, and may be purchased online at dmtc.org, by phone at 530-756-3682 or in person.
