Huck Finn’s ‘Big River’ Adventure Steams into Campus Theater

"Big River" Opens in the Cypress College Campus Theater this weekend.
“Big River” Opens in the Cypress College Campus Theater this weekend.

Mark Twain’s timeless classic “Big River” sweeps the audience down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River.

The adventures of Huck and Jim along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming — bringing to life characters from the novel.
“Big River” is also propelled by an award-winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music. This jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.

“Big River” opens this weekend and concludes the next in the Cypress College Campus Theater. Tickets are available online at cypresscollegetheateranddance.com. General Admission is $20; students, seniors, children, and employees pay $15. Tickets can also be purchased at the Theater and Dance Department box office which opens 90 minutes prior to show time. There is a $3 per ticket service charge when ordering online or by paying with credit card or debit card at the box office window.
