In the community since 1981 — Castaways celebrates and starts our 39th season.
Actors are real people.

The stage is a magic circle where
only the most real things happen…
A truer and more real place does
not exist in all the universe.

Tom Sawyer is a family-friendly* adventure of a young boy growing up in a Midwest town on the Mississippi River in the 1850’s. This adaptation of Mark Twain’s classic follows Tom through his mischievous escapades and is full of fun, suspense, and young love.
(*Although family-friendly, there is an evening graveyard scene where Doc Robinson is killed that may be scary for young children)

Note: The play is not a musical, but will incorporate a chorus and original music by Amanda Long.
