Big River

Big River Gala Performance and Dedication of James Dunn Theatre, March 1

A gala event celebrating the dedication of the James Dunn Theatre and 80th birthday party for James Dunn. The Performing Arts Department presents Big River directed by James Dunn.

Directed by James Dunn, with musical direction by Paul Smith, and choreography by Sandra Tanner the Marin County Premier of Big River is presented by special arrangement with Rodgers & Hammerstein, Inc. As American as apple pie, Big River recently played to sold out houses at TheatreWorks in Palo Alto. Based on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain, this show is everyone’s favorite bad boy adventure story. Tom Sawyer, The Duke, The King, and all the other wonderful characters from Twain’s masterpiece come to life as Huck Finn and Jim, the runaway slave, raft their way down the Big Muddy – The mighty Mississippi River. With a musical score reminiscent of the music of pre-slavery days in Missouri, this show will be a wonderful outing for the entire family.

Reserve your tickets today for a gala event celebrating the dedication of the James Dunn Theatre and 80th birthday party for James Dunn.
