‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’ comes to Kelsey Theatre

“The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” a musical for theater-goers of all ages, will be performed at the Kelsey Theatre on the campus of Mercer County Community College, 1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor, July 26 and Aug. 2 at 8 p.m.; July 27 and Aug. 3 at 8 p.m.; and July 28 and Aug. 4 at 2 p.m.

According to a press release, this imaginative theatrical adaptation of the Mark Twain classic follows 14-year-old Tom Sawyer growing up in the Missouri heartland circa 1840.

Life for the good-natured mischief-maker takes a sweet turn when Tom falls in love for the very first time with the beautiful newcomer Becky Thatcher. But he makes an enemy of the villainous Injun Joe and a summertime adventure with Becky and best friend Huckleberry Finn goes dangerously wrong.

Is a happy ending in store for Tom and his friends – complete with the discovery of buried treasure?
