Decorah High School: 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer'

The classic Mark Twain story comes to life on the Decorah High School stage in this Tony award-winning musical adaptation of America's favorite book.

"The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is the irresistible story of a 14 year-old boy growing up in the heartland of America. Set in 1840 Missouri, the tale centers around young Tom Sawyer and the mischief of which he so often finds himself a part -- whether it's tricking his friends into white-washing a fence for him or narrowly escaping the clutches of a murderous villain.

Performances of the show are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 14, 15 and 16, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 16, at 1:30 p.m. in the Decorah High School Auditorium.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for K-12 students. Tickets can be purchased from the DHS Box Office Nov. 11, 12 and 13, from 4-7 p.m. Tickets also may be reserved by calling 563-387-3900.
