‘Big River’ Opens at Oldcastle
Oldcastle Theatre presents ‘Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,’ winner of seven Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards. Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, Roger Miller’s clever, amusing, and heartfelt lyrics and music illustrate a deep understanding of the complexity of Mark Twain’s seminal novel, ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.’ The production, based on William Hauptman’s book, which beautifully captures Twain’s rollicking story, is simultaneously subversive, hilarious and tender. It opens at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 8, and runs through Sunday, July 24, with shows Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Thursday and Sunday at 2 p.m., in addition to a special matinee on Saturday, July 9, at 2 p.m. Tickets are buy one/get one free for the Wednesday, July 13, show at 7:30. Tickets can be purchased at 802-447-0564 or oldcastletheatre.org. The Theatre is located at 331 Main Street in Bennington.
