The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Based on the novel by Mark Twain, Book by William Hauptman, Music & Lyrics by Roger Miller
April 24 - May 4, 2014
The story sweeps down the mighty Mississippi as rebellious teenager Huck takes off on a raft with runaway slave Jim. The pair discovers a friendship that defies convention and defines the American dream as their adventure introduces them to unforgettable characters and tricky situations. The pair are challenged by their beliefs, by society, by each other, and by their circumstances as they join together to pass through the “Muddy Water” in an attempt to reach a better life.
Director Randal Myler’s vision for this production lies in its roots in Twain’s novel. Imagine a storytelling troupe traveling down the very Mississippi River Huck and Jim did, stopping to share their tale. You are transported into a heartfelt account that questions friendships and bonds that transcend race. Actors portraying multiple roles shed new light on this script and its thought-provoking commentary on society. The minimalist set created by Michael Duran lends itself to the lighting design by Jen Kiser as the two components blend to create a backdrop that heightens Myler’s artistic choices. On the stage, we see a literal band of misfits, each musician donning multiple instruments throughout the show and revealing the talent in the small ensemble led by Wheetman. Candy Brown draws on her years of experience on Broadway as she choreographs the cast.
Mack Shirilla leads this star-studded cast as Huck; Mack recently played the same role in a production at Casa Mañana in Dallas TX for which he received wide acclaim for his "loveable, athletic Huck" (Dallas Morning News). Denver-favorite Harvy Blanks makes his LTAC debut as Jim and Tony-nominated for The Color Purple, Felicia Fields lends her incomparable voice to this cast as Alice.
