According to a press release, this imaginative theatrical adaptation of the Mark Twain classic follows 14-year-old Tom Sawyer growing up in the Missouri heartland circa 1840.

Life for the good-natured mischief-maker takes a sweet turn when Tom falls in love for the very first time with the beautiful newcomer Becky Thatcher. But he makes an enemy of the villainous Injun Joe and a summertime adventure with Becky and best friend Huckleberry Finn goes dangerously wrong.
