Mark Twain’s "Tom Sawyer" On Stage

Set in St. Petersburg (Hannibal), Missouri, along the Mississippi River, Tom Sawyer tells the coming-of-age story of the community's most mischievous boy. Tom fights a bully, gets his friends to help him whitewash a fence, falls in love with Becky Thatcher, loses her to Alfred Temple, puts together a pirate gang with Huck Finn and the other town boys, runs away from home and comes back to witness his own funeral, wins a Bible scripture contest, and witnesses a murder. Tom initially recoils from telling the truth about Injun Joe's framing of drunk Muff Potter for the murder but ultimately steps forward to "do the right thing" and saves Muff's life in the final courtroom scene. The play is about learning to be a "stand-up" person even in the face of tremendous danger. Tom finally wins the confidence of the community and Becky's love by his behavior in the courtroom.
