THE Roger Miller musical Big River
Audiences are swept down the mighty Mississippi River by great music, humour, entertaining characters and a wonderful adventure story quite outside the realm of modern tales.
Running away from his dangerous dad and well-meaning women who want to "civilise" him, and in the company of runaway slave Jim (Carl Moore), Huck sets off on a raft.
His adventures are hilarious, suspenseful and heart-warming.
Big River is adapted by William Hauptman from the Mark Twain novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
It brings to life many favourite characters such as Tom Sawyer (Josh Green) and the outrageous and ridiculous conmen, The Duke (Tim Roberts) and the King (Graeme Speed).
Big River will be staged at the Players Theatre from November 13 until December 5.
Evening performances will commence at 8pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm. Opening night patrons will receive a complimentary glass of champagne.
