Audiences will adventure through Mark Twain’s American classic, beloved by children and adults, alongside iconic heroes Tom and Huck


CINCINNATI, November 1, 2017 – The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, adapted by Laura Eason from the novel by Mark Twain, will open at The Otto M. Budig Theater just in time for the start of the holiday season!

Young Tom Sawyer is a boy who lives a simple life but longs for adventure and glory – and to catch the eye of his pretty classmate Becky. Tom’s world of boyhood fantasy is turned topsy-turvy when he and his best friend Huckleberry Finn witness a crime and get swept up into a real-life adventure as they learn important lessons about bravery, honesty, and what it is to grow up.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer runs November 17-December 9, with performances on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2:00 PM, as well as Saturdays November 25 and December 9 at 2:00 PM.  There will be no performance on Thursday, November 23. Preview performances are November 15 and 16 at 7:30.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is recommended for children ages 8+ but the whole family can still join us- on Sundays Nov. 26 or Dec. 3, bring your younger kids (4+) for Artist-led child care DURING the performance! The “Playdate” program is only $15 and free for Subscribers. The option to add this program will be available as you are buying tickets for either of these show dates. Activities will range from Shakespeare Storytime to theatre games and crafts. Share the great benefits of CSC’s programming with your children: Playdate will style activities to correspond with each production, so even your youngest can join in the discussion on the ride home!
