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.
The opening night performance of Big River has been made possible in part by generous support from our sponsors, including our media sponsor the Marin Independent Journal, Bank of Marin, Associated Students College of Marin (ASCOM), Grace Hughes, Midstate Construction, The Purple Lady, Ross Valley Players, Wells Fargo, The Club at Harbor Point, and Westpark Express. Special Thanks to Mountain Play, Godwin Family Vineyards and Susie Cakes for their in-kind contributions to the show. Proceeds from the opening night event will benefit College of Marin Performing Arts Programs.
