OSAGE – “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” the musical based on the famous book written by Mark Twain, will be presented by Cedar Summerstock Theater, June 27-July 7, at the Krapek Family Fine Arts Center at the Cedar River Complex in Osage.

Along with his best friend Huckleberry Finn, and his love interest, Becky Thatcher, the greatest Tom Sawyer exploits come to life on the stage, with foot-stomping blue-grass and country songs that prove fun for the whole family.

The production also falls in line with the troupe’s focus on bringing youth actors to the stage. Several younger actors from Mitchell County will take part in the production.
