With the support of over 100 consensus organizers (individuals and organizations serving the black community), this revision of Broadway’s Tony-Winning Musical will lift your spirit. The small-cast hour-long version of Mark Twain’s polarizing novel removes offensive language and expands the role of Jim, now the same age as Huck. Twain’s classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, an enslaved teen, escape to freedom from enslavement. This tale of friendship against all odds is recreated for young audiences as two best friends demonstrate the power children have to change the world.
