'Big River' closes Summer Theatre's 49th season

Based on Mark Twain’s timeless classic, “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” “Big River” will run on stage at Minot State University’s Summer Theatre July 18-23 at 8:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale at 7:30 p.m. Kevin Neuharth, associate professor of communication arts, directs this production.

“Big River” will sweep 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. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming. Propelled by Roger Miller’s award-winning score in bluegrass and country styles, the journey celebrates Americana.
