"Big River" 2 tickets at The Round Barn Theatre
July 23rd - August 25
Look out for me, oh, muddy water” is the cry we hear as Huckleberry Finn and the slave, Jim begin their life-altering journey down the mighty Mississippi River. Whether the threat is real or imagined Huck and Jim battle against the odds and handle everything Mark Twain’s imagination puts in their path. With music by the award-winning Roger Miller, the unforgettable score includes “Free at Last”, “Waitin’ for the Light to Shine”, “(We are) The Boys”, and “How Blest We Are”. Return with us to one of the most popular shows in our history as we cheer on Huck and m and laugh at their foes.
Transformations, like the crawling caterpiller becomes a graceful butterfly, happen before audience’s eyes in all seven main stage musicals and comedy. From “Life Could Be A Dream” to “Beauty And The Beast” the season highlights how the human spirit can evolve, improve or reconcile. “Life Could Be a Dream” follows a group of young boys who become singing stars; Papa Yoder, the patriarch of “Plain and Fancy”, in its 33rd season admits that “we grow too soon old and too late schmart”, “Freaky Friday” is brought to stage to show a mother and daughter learn to appreciate each other, Mark Twain’s Huck Finn learns along the “Big River” to love and accept all people, “Anne Of Green Gables” grows into a studious young woman and changes those around her and “The Sunshine Boys” rekindle their long broken friendship. The Holiday show, the long awaited revival of “Beauty And The Beast,” is the ultimate transformation that love can bring.
