Classical Theatre Project
America’s most beloved coming of age tale is also its most controversial. Set against the racially charged backdrop of a pre-Civil War American South, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn examines the nature of friendship and freedom in the face of shocking prejudice. Dare to escape with us down theMississippi and learn that thinking for yourself is the bravest act of all.
Featuring imaginative stagecraft and a live Gospel choir. Acclaimed by audiences across North America, the Classical Theatre Project is Canada’s leader in classic theatre for young audiences. An American premiere, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, is a new, fast-paced adaptation specifically designed to engage young audiences.
Director and adapter Charles Roy is excited about bringing a fresh perspective to Mark Twain’s classic story. “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a wonderfully timeless piece,” says Roy. “This adaptation, in particular, focuses on relating the story of Jim and Huck Finn to today’s audience. The play is fast-paced, touching, funny and really helps to educate students about the importance of thinking for themselves.”
