Beaverton actors take stage in 'Tom Sawyer'

Mark Twain's classic story comes to musical life in Journey Theatre for Young Audiences' version of "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer," the Broadway musical adaptation of America's favorite book.

"The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is the irresistible story of a 14-year-old boy growing up in the heartland of America.

This Broadway musical version of Twain's immortal novel is set in 1840 in St. Petersburg, Mo., a bustling town on the banks of the Mississippi River. In the course of the story, Tom matches wits with his stern Aunt Polly, falls in love with the beautiful, feisty Becky Thatcher, and goes on the adventure of his life with Becky and that irresistible renegade, Huckleberry Finn. Along the way, they meet a terrifying villain named Injun Joe, Tom's bratty half-brother Sid, and all the other boys and girls in the village.

Performances are Friday, Saturday and Sunday at The Venetian Theater in Hillsboro.   

Tickets are on sale now at JourneyTheater.org or by calling 360-750-8550. Pre-sale adult tickets are $12. Youth and senior tickets are $10.

The Saturday showing at 3 p.m. is a “family day” performance with all tickets $10 in advance. Tickets for all performances will be $3 more at the door.
