Tom Sawyer for young audiences comes to Hillsboro

Mark Twain’s classic story comes to life as Journey Theater Arts Group presents the Broadway musical adaptation “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” for young audiences at the Venetian Theatre in Hillsboro.

The irresistible story of a 14-year-old boy growing up in the heartland of America, the story is set in 1840 in St. Petersburg, Mo., 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 and feisty Becky Thatcher, and goes on the adventure of his life with irresistible renegade Huckleberry Finn.

School day performances for classes and home school groups are being offered Thursday, Nov. 14.

Journey is a theater arts program serving youths ages 6 to 18 at four locations in the Portland-Vancouver area with classes in drama, dance, and voice.
