Huckleberry Finn's Big River
About Huckleberry Finn's Big River
Twain's timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Touching and timeless, this tale of friendship against all odds is recreated for young audiences as two best friends demonstrate the power of changing the world.
"Big River" was adapted to help children overcome racial barriers, celebrate multi-culturalism, and realize their power to change the world.
